This paper presents a Magnetotactic Bacteria (MTB) navigation and aggregation technique that allows targeting without prior knowledge of the exact architecture of the vessels network. The MTB's active motility combined with magnetotaxism (their ability to swim following the magnetic field direction) offer new possibilities for the delivery of drugs to tumors. Many tumor microenvironment parameters such as the malformed angiogenesis capillaries, the heterogeneous blood flow, and the high… CONTINUE READING
