From laboratories in Ljubljana, Slovenia comes fresh hope for cancer suffers. A team of researches, from Slovenia, Russia, Germany and the USA have developed a method of treating the disease based on a new drug delivery system.
The results so far are encouraging. Researchers found that when using standard methods, the tumour size diminished to 40 percent of its original size ten days after application.
When they used this new system the tumour diminished to 10 percent of its original size after 10 days.
If it is proven successful researchers are saying the delivery method could come into widespread use in five to six years. It will allow drugs to better target tumours, while saving the surrounding healthy cells.
