Researchers at LKS Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong (HKUMed) and collaborators from the School of Basic Medical Sciences, Fudan University, Shanghai, have developed an ‘intravenous injection plus light-triggered intraocular drug release’ strategy to achieve drug accumulation in retinoblastoma. The strategy avoids invasive intravitreal drug administration and shows promise in treating retinoblastoma and other eye diseases. The research has just been published in Advanced Science [link to publication], and a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) patent application has been filed based on this work.
