The startup BIND Biosciences develops novel nanoparticles which include a drug and that they hope, at the same time, reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and increase its effectiveness against cancer. In addition to carrying the drug, these nanoparticles are inserted into proteins used to attack the cancer.

The nanoparticles developed by BIND Biosciences can remain in the bloodstream longer than a day, which increases the effectiveness of the drug due to increased chances of the medication to reach its objectives.
