Cancer treatment transformation through new drug delivery device

Iontophoresis, a new method used by a new device, where an electrical field drives chemotherapy drugs directly into the tumor, hence preventing their growth and also in some cases, even shrinking them. The device is designed by University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. The electrical field is conveyed via electrodes either implanted internally such as to treat pancreatic tumors or may be applied externally to the skin to treat an underlying breast tumor.
