Nanotechnology helps track and improve drug action in pancreatic cancer

Scientists have been able to show ways in which we can markedly improve drug targeting of solid tumors, using tiny 'biosensors' along with new advanced imaging techniques. In real time and in three dimensions, these technologies can show us how cancers spread and how active cancer cells respond to a particular drug.
