Nanorobots target tumors for direct drug delivery.

Like little homing missiles, teams of nanorobots can now swim through bloodstreams, target cancerous tissue, and deliver a drug deep into the tumor without harming surrounding healthy tissues, according to a paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology by a team of researchers from Polytechnique Montréal, Université de Montréal and McGill University.

Once inside the tumor, the nanorobots’ job isn’t done. A sensor that measures oxygen concentration allows the bots to autonomously detect low-oxygen zones — which are active cancer areas, generally resistant to therapies — for direct drug delivery.
