They develop a drug that destroys, in animals with cancer, metastatic cells without damaging healthy ones.
The Institut de Recerca de l'Hospital de Sant Pau has developed a nanomedicine that acts like a drone: it scans the body's cells and destroys the malignant ones, leaving the healthy ones undamaged and also prevents the appearance of new metastases.

Developed by VHIR researchers, it is used to study virus resistance to direct-acting antivirals in patients who fail treatments with combinations of these.
