Fri, 09 Feb 2007 10:00 AM EST

... To accurately transport pharmaceutical agents to their specific target organs or cell types, you need a good carrier: Nanoscopic capsules with surface elements that can "recognize" the target in question could do the trick. Korean researchers led by Kimoon Kim have developed a very simple novel approach for the direct production of polymeric nanocapsules, they write in Angewandte Chemie. ...
