New Israeli tech could use light to control drugs

'This technology opens opportunities for biomedical and biotechnological applications'

i24 reports that researchers from Israel's Tel Aviv University developed a new technology that could lead to better control over the release of drugs in the human body - by using ultraviolet light.

The technology is inspired by the "viral factories" made by the measles virus when infecting a cell. True to their name, these compartments are made within the host cell, containing the necessary material for making more viral particles. Recent studies have also shown that these viral factories are actually liquid-like structures.
