This Nanoparticle System Helps Drugs Promote Fat-Burning In Tissue

A group of scientists and engineers working out of MIT have managed to develop an exceptionally innovative and undeniably high-tech and potentially revolutionary new fat-fighting drug delivery system that makes it possible to completely change and alter the ways that obesity-battling drugs are sent into the system of a human patient.

What makes this particular fat-fighting system so special is the manner in which it delivers those drugs that happen to be capable of converting fat-storing tissue into fat-burning materials. It does so by making fun of a special targeting molecule that guides drug particles to the site of fat-burning.

Considering that nearly a third of people in the USA are obese, this fat-fighting drug delivery system could have huge ramifications for public health.
