Customized Cancer Care Thanks To Nanodiscs
(Undated) — Researchers are stepping up their game when it comes to customized vaccines and treatments for skin and colon cancer. It’s all thanks to a new technology that’s based on nanodiscs. Each tiny nanodisc is made up of synthetic, patient-specific lipoproteins designed to teach a patient’s immune system how to identify and kill off their own cancers. Researchers at the University of Michigan say their initial results have been so positive that they’ve spun off a biotech company to help fast-track the development of nanodisc vaccines.
