The guidlines were published in the September issue of Annals of Biomedical Engineering. Researchers introduced a multi-stage delivery system comprising a 20-nm primary nano-carrier, which releases 5-nm secondary nanoparticles containing drugs, through mathematical modelling.

The researchers also found that multi-stage nanoparticles have better therapeutic outcomes than conventional two-stage nano-carriers.

The smaller size of the primary particles of 20 nm also displayed better penetration into tumor tissues, compared with 100-nm particles used in previous researches.
