Iranian Researchers Design Nano-Medicine for Treating Breast Cancer.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The newly-designed nano-medicine is made up of biocompatible and biodegradable polymers which can reduce toxicity of anti-cancer drugs, an Iranian researcher said.
Farid Abedin, a faculty member of Tehran University of Medical Science and lead author of the study, said, a micellar system has been made in the research, using biocompatible and biodegradable polymers which is composed of hyaluronic acid and phospholipids, the Iranian students' news agency reported.
He went on to say that it sends drug to low-dissolved material and its physical and chemical properties have been investigated.
The micellar system has been used to send taxol to intended spots for treating breast cancer in animal phases.
The nano-medicine performed well in healing breast tumors in animals, he said, adding the results suggest that the product can also reduce the side effects and increase taxol dissolution.
It also created less side effects and performed better comparing to free release method.
The results of the study have been published in ‌Applied Polymer Science Journal.
