Nano-capsules designed for diagnosing malignant tumours

27.5.2015: Japanese researchers have developed adaptable nano-capsules that can help in the diagnosis of glioblastoma cells – a highly invasive form of brain tumour. Polymersomes are hollow, synthetic, nano-sized capsules. They have been extensively studied for their potential in the targeted delivery of drugs within the body. PICsomes are a novel class of polymersomes that were recently developed in Japan. They are made by mixing electrolyte groups formed of positively and negatively charged ions.
