Drug Release In Hot Water
To deliver drugs at a certain time and place inside the body, scientists have been developing tiny particles that release their cargo when triggered by infrared light. Capable of penetrating human tissue, this light heats metals or activates designer photosensitive polymers at a particle’s core to set off delivery. Looking for a release mechanism that’s less reliant on a particle’s composition, a research team at the University of California, San Diego, has for the first . . .
