New research from the University of Huddersfield has shed light on a new lab technique which could aid in the development of an important anticancer treatment.

By injecting polymer beads into arteries to ‘feed’ tumours, scientists are able to starve them of oxygen and nutrients by blocking blood flow. The polymers then release an anticancer drug directly into the tumour, reducing systemic side-effects.
