In order to target a diseased material in a subject, a monocyte, or monocyte-derived cell, such as a macrophage, which incorporates a magnetic material, such as a magnetic particle or a ferrofluid, preferably having a biocompatible coating, is proposed to be administered. A magnetic energy source may then be applied to the subject to destroy, rupture or inactivate the diseased material. Alternatively, the monocyte or monocyte derived cell may additionally include a therapeutic agent, which is thereby targeted at the diseased material.
