Nanodiamonds to Neutralize Chemoresistance in Leukaemia

by National University of Singapore
Chemoresistance or the specific resistance acquired by cells to the action of certain chemicals commonly hinders the treatment of cancer. Existing ways to address this issue revolve around using competitive inhibitors, but have limited success. Now, a research team led by Assistant Professor Edward Chow of the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore (CSI) at NUS has found that binding multiple molecules of a common leukaemia drug with nanodiamonds can neutralise chemoresistance.
