Markers and Targeting

  • description

System Overview


  • find site to attach marker to on cancerous cells in metastasis
    • marker should be a beacon for attack cells
    • should make cancerous cells detectable in body
    • stain lipid bilayer, measure decrease in staining? does this work in the body?
    • basement membrane, keeps epithelial cells attached, breaking the layer allows movement, cancerous development?
    • does metastasis happen slowly with a few individual cells, or a massive outbreak?
    • prevent cells from breaking bonds to basement membrane, inhibit movement?
    • break up tumors and remove pieces?


  • engineer attack cells to move towards marker
    • marker causes release of certain chemicals, certain structural changes, membrane receptors?
    • attack cells can bind to structure/receptor or detect chemical diffusion
    • attack cells find cancerous cells


  • asef
    • kill tumor or prevent from undergoing metastasis?
    • kill individual cancerous cells in metastasis within the body?
    • prevent cancerous cells in metastasis from binding to other organs?
