Nano-Engineered Brain Cancer Treatment Might Kill Tumor Cells and Activate Immune System

A new nanomedicine out of the University of Michigan uses a protein that crosses the blood-brain barrier carrying a drug that kills tumor cells and another drug that activates the immune system to fight brain cancer. That’s the news along with an announcement of $2.38 million to test the new cancer treatment in mice in Ann Arbor. The new medicine is targeting the most aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma. The funding comes from the National Institutes of Health to test the technology at the University of Michigan.
