The researchers have developed nano-particles, called nano-ghosts, for improved drug delivery. Produced from the membrane of cells they possess natural targeting capabilities to various cancers. Nano-ghosts can be loaded with different drugs and retain the selective targeting capabilities of their source cells while leading to dramatic tumor growth inhibition.
