How drug delivery could be improved with advances in nanotechnology

Drug delivery is not as easy as simply getting the right drug into contact with the right cells. We need to consider factors such as how the drug will reach its target site, how long it will remain at the site before degrading, and what impact it may have on non-target cells. Advances in nanotechnology could have fascinating real-life implications for improving the accuracy and effectiveness of drug delivery. It could revolutionise many treatments, especially ones where the drug can…

The Protein Interaction Between Interleukin-6 and APOBEC3 Provides Insight into Liver Cancer Treatment

Liver cancer is the second most common cause of cancer related death worldwide, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) accounts for more than 90% of those cases.  HCC is the sixth most common type of cancer in the world, the fifth most common in males (7.5%) and the ninth most common in females (3.4%). Each year, approximately 78,200 new cases of HCC are diagnosed, and the occurrence of HCC is likely to increase over the next 10 to 20 years. New research,…
