Delivering specific mRNA molecules with the help of nanoparticles scientists managed to restore the ability of the body to fight prostate cancer - short science news
Nanoparticles restore cancer-fighting genes- short science news

In some types of cancer, the development and progression are due to mutations or loss of specific genes called tumor-suppressor genes. Using an innovative technique, scientists managed to restore these genes in a model of prostate cancer. To achieve this, the researchers loaded nanoparticles with messenger RNA (mRNA) for those genes, which gives similar results with having the functional ones in the cells. This effectively restored tumor suppression in mice, even when the cancer was in the metastatic stage, and might lead to the development of a new type of precision medicine for treating cancer.
