A Nanodevice for the Treatment of Cancer Developed by Researchers from UdeM

  September 8, 2014

A team of researchers from Université de Montréal (our CREATE-CFS Member Jean-François Masson and our CREATE-CFS Collaborator Joelle Pelletier) have developed a miniature device that can measure in less than a minute a patient's blood for methotrexate, a commonly used cancer drug. Just as accurate and 10x less expensive than equipment currently used in hospitals, this nanoscale optical device can rapidly gauge the dose a patient needs, while minimizing the drug's adverse effects.
