Nano-particles Containing Two Potent Cancer-Fighting Drugs Effective in Killing Cancer

The unique properties of the hollow shell nano-particles, known as polymersomes, allow them to deliver two distinct drugs, paclitaxel, the leading cancer drug known by brand names such as Taxol, and doxorubicin directly to tumors implanted in mice.
