UNLABELLED Recent interest in using gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) for therapy in radiation medicine has motivated development of a liposome-based system to enhance their delivery to cells. In this study, liposomes were demonstrated to perform like a "Trojan Horse" to deliver small (1.4 nm) Au NPs into tumor cells by overcoming the energetically unfavorable… CONTINUE READING
