      Hi! Really interesting question. As you may know, most of the anti-tumor drugs present side effects that causes serious problems to the patient such as stomach ache or loss of weight among others. These side effects are mainly due to the high doses of the drug needed to achieve an effective treatment. One of the advantages that the nanoparticles could have is the need of lower doses of the drug since they reach the tumor in a more effective way than the common drugs
