For the first time, antibodies have been transported through a cell membrane and this can kill even the most resilient types of cancer. Two engineering students from Aarhus University have discovered the new method.

"We were working with an antibody for treatment of leukaemia which is characterised by having some particularly viable cells. Our goal was to make the antibody attach to the cancer cell and find out which effect it could have on the medical treatment. But then we found out by coincidence that we were actually able to transport the antibody all the way into the cell and make it work there", says Lasse Kjellerup who recently graduated as Master of Engineering in process technology from Aarhus University and who now holds a job in the medical industry.
