"Researchers here have found a way to avoid the toxicity of some plant-derived cancer-killing drugs by 'masking' their toxicity until they reach their targets, potentially leading to more effective cancer therapies.

Using the new method, the researchers were able to specifically target and kill leukemia cells in mice without causing the severe side effects previously seen in clinical trials."
