I don't know how good, how stable and how this could be used more.
But seems to be working with few years more work to it?

This project aims to develop a new type of universal immunotherapy that can be used to treat many different types of cancer by delivering molecules that stimulate the immune system into the tumour itself. This activates the patient’s own defence mechanisms to kill the cancer cells. The result could be a treatment that is effective for more patients and has fewer side effects.

In 2015 they where investigating biodegradable nanoparticles made of proteins, lipids and saccharides that can transport drug cocktails to tumours.

According to Dr Skotland, the method works by injecting nanoparticle-filled fluid into the bloodstream. The surface structure of the nanoparticles and the structure of blood vessels in the tumour will cause the nanoparticles to pile up just exactly at the tumour site. This concentration results in a relatively higher number of nanoparticles dissolving in and around the tumour than elsewhere in the body.

“It’s a passive approach, but it works,” Dr Sandvig states.

Wow neat! Does it say how the bubble distinguishes between normal cells and cancer?

i find it a interesting idea and would likely be better then most of the usually methods used to treat cancer now as long as persons immune response doesn't go out of control

Hope so or that it turns out to be quite good in a few years.
