The technology can be applied to treat many types of cancer, since all solid tumor-feeding blood vessels are essentially the same.

The major new advancement is the result of a collaboration between researchers from Arizona State University (ASU) and the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST). The findings were recently published in Nature Biotechnology.

Until now, one challenge in advancing nanomedicine has been to design, build and control nanorobots that will actively target and destroy cancerous tissue, without damaging any healthy cells.
