Poisoning Cancer’s Food

David Needham has a new strategy for killing tumors—smuggling cancer drugs into the cancer cells hidden in lipids, their primary energy source. Needham is already a pioneer in developing heat-activated liposomes for killing tumors. These tiny lipid droplets, when engineered to contain cancer drugs, are taken up by tumors because of their leaky vasculature. The liposomes are engineered to release their cargo when heated, killing tumor cells.
