    Development of an advanced drug delivery system to prevent and treat breast cancer bone metastasis

Other major advantages include the low cost of the end product especially when considered for patients of low socioeconomic status and the applicability of this targeted delivery system to a range of other cancers with the risk of bone metastasis.
