Nanoparticle-based method shows promise in DNA vaccine delivery

Researchers have developed a novel method for delivering therapeutic molecules into cells. The method harnesses gold nanoparticles that are electrically activated, causing them to oscillate and bore holes in cells’ outer membranes and allowing key molecules — such as DNA, RNA, and proteins — to gain entry….
