Nanoscale tools to selectively destroy cancer cells
Pierre-Luc Boudreault, Mathieu Arseneault, François 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.
