New cellular treatment could cure chronic artery disease

Posted by on March 16, 2021

A new, cellular-level approach to removing plaque build-up in the arteries could eventually lead to a cure for the chronic disease known as atherosclerosis, according to a researcher at Missouri S&T. The method uses nanoparticles that can be designed to deliver plaque-busting drugs to specific cells in arteries. The nanoparticles have an average diameter of 150 nanometers, about 1/500th the diameter of a human hair.
