Abstract

We propose a new method to treat the invading glioblastoma (GBM) cells by trapping within sticky microgels. To trap the invading cells within the microgels, we formulate the microgels to modify the redox system at the cell surfaces, enhancing the free-thiol mediated cell adhesion. By reducing the disulfide bonds into free-thiols at the cell surfaces, we could make the cells being trapped within the sticky microgels.
