Swimming Microrobots Deliver Cancer-fighting Drugs to Metastatic Lung Tumors in Mice

Swimming Microrobots Deliver Cancer-fighting Drugs to Metastatic Lung Tumors in Mice

June 12, 2024

Engineers have developed microscopic robots, known as microrobots, capable of swimming through the lungs to deliver cancer-fighting medication directly to metastatic tumors. This approach has shown promise in mice, where it inhibited the growth and spread of tumors that had metastasized to the lungs, thereby boosting survival rates compared to control treatments.
