Innovative approach to fighting cancer via synthetic circuits
While immunotherapy has become an important part of treating some types of cancer in the last few decades, surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, alone or in combination, remain the most common interventions. The EU-funded InCanTeSiMo project aims to fight cancer via the local delivery and activation of cancer-defeating synthetic circuits. The synthetic circuits will sense the status of the cell into which they are delivered and act only in response to a detected diseased status. This innovative cancer therapy can be adapted to each patient's particular case when the synthetic circuits are being designed.
