New approach developed to improve drug delivery in tumorsTags: azcc, bio5, cancer, university of arizona
[Source: PhysOrg] - By using mathematical modeling to understand blood flow, researchers -- including the UA's Timothy Secomb, a pioneer in the field -- have proposed a novel approach to treating cancerous tumors.
Researchers know that blood vessels are poor at transporting oxygen and cancer-fighting drugs in tumors. Using mathematical modeling, scientists have found a new approach that may improve drug delivery in the tumor and increase its effectiveness.

Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
