NanoXray is a nanomedicine technology: a new solution addressing current limitations of radiotherapy
The local treatment of malignant tumors is the cornerstone of cancer treatment, for which standard treatments are surgery and radiotherapy, either used independently or in combination. Radiotherapy has been widely used in most oncology indications for decades. About 60% of cancer patients receive radiotherapy at some point of their treatment regime.
Today, many cancer patients do not receive doses sufficient for tumor destruction, respond insufficiently or not at all to treatments, or even develop resistance to these treatments. In order to obtain greater radiotherapy efficacy, the dose delivered to the tumor must be increased without increasing its effect on healthy tissues.
The fundamental goal of Nanoxray is to provide a solution to the question of “how to increase the delivered dose to the tumor without increasing it in healthy tissue?”This will lead to a greatly improved efficacy of radiotherapy and most likely increase the overall efficacy of cancer treatment.
This online article published in future oncology establishes the bases for NanoXray technology.
