Cutting-Edge Carriers Deliver Controllable Cancer Chemotherapy
New System Could Boost Treatment Effectiveness and Curb Side Effects

As a result, many cancer treatments kill cells throughout the body and cause severe side effects. New IRP research could solve this problem by creating a way to release those toxic compounds only when and where doctors desire.
