X-ray irradiation-activated hydrogel for effective on-demand treatment of glioblastoma and other tumors

Primary tumor reoccurrence often occurs following surgical resection in glioblastoma multiforme patients. Current hydrogel approaches deliver therapeutics using light or pH, but these approaches are limited by the tumor microenvironment. Researchers have developed an injectable hydrogel with unique materials that can be activated by X-ray irradiation...
