New method tags elusive tumors for targeted therapy

Researchers have discovered a way to tag cancer cells of tumors that are difficult to target because they lack suitable receptors. They suggest that their approach, which they tested in mice, could lead to new targeted therapies for cancers that do not respond to those currently available, such as triple-negative breast cancer.

The method uses small-molecule sugars to produce unique, artificial cell surface receptors on cancer cells.
