Nanozeolites are being tested in cell culture experiments in the laboratory as carriers for cancer drugs.


The zeolite nanoparticles themselves were taken up by the investigated colon cancer cell lines, but caused no negative toxic effects. The pore size of the nanozeolites significantly influenced the loading rate, release and efficiency of the tested cancer drugs. For optimal results, the pore size of the zeolite nanoparticles should therefore be individually adjusted to the molecular size of the active ingredients [1].
