Magnetic particle targeting is a new approach in cancer drug administration which aims to reduce side effects, increase healing rate and reduce treatment time. For this purpose a therapeutic agent is equipped with a magnetizable membrane and administered intravenously. A rare earth magnet can then be used to target cancerous tissue in proximity of the blood vessel.
