Metal organic framework used to treat low-oxygen tumors

Cancerous tumors can often create areas of low oxygen concentration around them. This creates challenges for cancer treatments that rely on creating reactive oxygen species to damage tumor DNA. Research from the University of Chicago developed a metal-organic framework to help reverse hypoxia in cancerous tumors in mice.
