Project Stealth is re-engineering cancer therapy. Research being conducted by Dr. Daniel A. Saltzman at the University of Minnesota is focusing on a new and potentially breakthrough therapy in the fight against cancer. This therapy uses altered or “attenuated” salmonella bacteria to deliver anti-cancer drugs directly to tumor cells. The early phases of this research have been highly successful, but before this therapy can be used to treat cancer patients, more work and research need to be done.
