Using light-harvesting nanoparticles to convert laser energy into "plasmonic nanobubbles," researchers at Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have developed methods for delivering chemotherapy drugs directly into cancer cells. In tests on drug-resistant cancer, the researchers found the methods were up to 30 times more deadly to cancer cells than traditional chemotherapy and required less than one-tenth the clinical dose.
