Molecule Discovered at K-State Could Deliver Drugs to Treat Cancer & Other Diseases
Monday September 24, 2012
Kansas State University researchers have discovered a molecule that may be capable of delivering drugs inside the body to treat diseases.
For the first time, researchers have designed and created a membrane-bounded vesicle formed entirely of peptides — molecules made up of amino acids, the building blocks of protein. The membrane could serve as a new drug delivery system to safely treat cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
