Delivery method for CRISPR editing of breast cancer

Researchers developed a deformable nanolipogel-based delivery system for CRISPR-based knockout of lipocalin 2 (Lcn2), an oncogene implicated in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), a leading cause of cancer-related mortality with poor prognosis, in human breast tumor cells; in a mouse model of TNBC, nanolipogel-based CRISPR knockout of Lcn2 suppressed tumor growth by approximately 77%, suggesting that the nanolipogel might represent a precise and effective delivery method for therapeutic CRISPR editing for TNBC, according to the authors.
