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.
