Nanoparticles used to enhance chemotherapy

A new formulation of cisplatin, a common chemotherapy drug, has been developed by researchers that significantly increases the drug's ability to target and destroy cancerous cells. Cisplatin may be used to treat a variety of cancers, but it is most commonly prescribed for cancer of the bladder, ovaries, cervix, testicles and lung. It is an effective drug, but many cancerous cells develop resistance to the treatment.
