Fighting Brain Tumors with Nanoparticles
CpG are small snippets of DNA that can stimulate an immune response, activating immune cells’ ability to attack and destroy nearby cells.
CNTs are ultra small carbon-based, tube-shaped nanoparticles measured in nanometers, or one-billionth of a meter.
CNT-CpG will be injected into brain tumor sites and then trigger an immune reaction in the immediate area, destroying tumor cells with minimal impact on surrounding healthy tissues.
Dr. Badie and Dr. Berlin are looking to initiate an in-human trial as soon as possible.
