Nanoscale tools to selectively destroy cancer cells

Pierre-Luc Boudreault, Mathieu Arseneault, Fran├žois Otis and Normand Voyer


We present experimental data that demonstrate the potential of synthetic crown ether modified peptide nanostructures to act as selective and efficient chemotherapeutic agents that operate by attacking and destroying cell membranes.
