Targeted Oxidation: A New Method for Local Chemotherapeutic Medicine
Region:East Kootenay
City:Cranbrook, BC
School:Mount Baker Secondary
Abstract:Building off previous research on delivering drugs directly to the targeted tissue, a novel active agent was explored through investigation of feasibility and experimentation. Targeted oxidation of a malignant cell’s nucleus was investigated by nanoparticle delivery. The drug model is comprised of DiBenzyl Peroxide (BOP), for its aromatic radical properties, which is absorbed into 5 nm gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and microencapsulated inside a liposome.
