Molecular medicine is increasing our understanding of the molecular basis of cancer and is providing new targets for therapeutic intervention. But at present we do not have appropriate ways to deliver these agents to the tumor, and without this ability their potential will not be realized. Jain proposes a three-part strategy for overcoming this obstacle to successful treatment of tumors.
