The invention by American chemical engineer Robert Langer and team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge relies on delivering anti-cancer drugs in synthetic polymers to ensure their targeted delivery to target sites, such as tumor sites. Covering the highly potent pharmaceuticals in biodegradable plastics helps focus the drug''s effect where it is needed: directly at the tumour site.
