NCS: Researchers at Purdue University have discovered radiotherapeutics that target carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX), a marker of hypoxia. Hypoxia is a common feature of solid tumors and develops because of poorly formed vasculature due to rapid growth of the tumor that outstrips the oxygen supply. Current radiotherapy treatments are non-specific and often toxic with severe side-effects. The Purdue researchers discovered small molecule ligands of CA IX to selectively bind it and deliver the radiotherapeutic.
