Innovative anticancer treatments continuously require tissue bioengineering models to test novel therapies. The increasing number of developments based on nanotechnology for cancer therapy or theragnostics demand simple, reliable, fast and cost-effective cancer in vivo models for preclinical testing. However, despite the many tumor models available, very few reproduce the complex intratumoral cell-to-cell interactions as well as the accompanying systemic whole body effects resulting of the… CONTINUE READING
