Drug Tracked in Tissue by Special Type of Mass Spectrometry, Lund University Study


10/19/2011 9:10:17 AM

When a new drug is developed, the manufacturer must be able to show that it reaches its intended goal in the body's tissue, and only that goal. Such studies could be made easier with a new method now established at Lund University in Sweden. The method is a special type of mass spectrometry which can be used on drugs 'off the shelf', i.e. without any radioactive labelling which may change the behaviour of the drug. With this method, researchers Gyorgy Marko-Varga and Thomas Fehniger have managed to create a molecular image of the drug in the tissue.
