Over the past decade, we have seen an increasing interest in using carboranes in drug design," said Mark W.
Carboranes don't fight cancer directly, but they aid in the ability of a drug to bind more tightly to its target, creating a more potent mechanism for destroying the cancer cells," he explained.
