Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Little Size Holds Big Impact: Johns Hopkins Scientists Develop Nanocontainer to Ship Titan-Size Gene Therapies And Drugs Into Cells

Newswise imageScientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine report they have created a tiny, nanosize container that can slip inside cells and deliver protein-based medicines and gene therapies of any size -- even hefty ones attached to the gene-editing tool called CRISPR. If their creation - constructed of a biodegradable polymer -- passes more laboratory testing, it could offer a way to efficiently ferry larger medical compounds into specifically selected target cells.
