An article in the magazine Cancer Cell (Vol 11, p 431 May 2007 -- have they no online copy?), reported in
New Scientist, describes research by Himanshu Brahmbhatt and Jennifer MacDiarmid of EnGeneIC in Sydney, Australia, in which nano sized (400 nanometers) buds of cytoplasm from bacteria are used to deliver anti-cancer drugs directly to tumors, avoiding the side affects of normal chemotherapy.

Here's a
link to some related patent information.
