Global Cancer Technology is initially focused on developing its advanced drug delivery platform technology, Scintillating NanoCrystals (SNCs): nanosized injectable particles linked to cancer drug molecules in order to transport to, and then selectively decimate, deep-seated tumors via extremely low-dose external radiation. Inactive cancer drug molecules are attached to Global Cancer Technology’s nanosized scintillators made of nanocrystals that are activated at the tumor site by a very low dose of external radiation, designed to release the drug molecules’ full potency without harming surrounding tissue.
San Diego-based Global Cancer Technology is an emerging medical technology company with a robust pipeline focused on fighting cancer.
CAUTION: The company’s Scintillating NanoCrystals (SNCs) not approved for human use at this time.
