Bee venom could improve drug delivery

According to Science Daily, new studies show that bee venom, when altered, can improve delivery of liposome-encapsulated drugs or dyes to improve the treatment of cancer.

According to Samuel A. Wickline, Ph.D., a researcher at Consortium for Translational Research in Advanced Imaging and Nanomedicine (C-TRAIN) at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, "This type of transporter agent may help in the design and use of more personalized treatment regimens that can be selectively targeted to tumors and other diseases."
