Engineering the perfect (bacterial) cancer therapy

Engineering the perfect (bacterial) cancer therapy Bacterial therapies have many advantages over standard cancer therapies — they specifically target tumours, induce controllable cytotoxicity and can be externally detected. This Innovation article proposes that synthetic biology can be applied to bacterial therapies and can tune their beneficial features, allowing the engineering of 'perfect' cancer therapies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Reviews Cancer Springer Journals
