    • Ultrasonic-Activated Micellar Drug Delivery for Cancer Treatment 

      Husseini, Ghaleb; Pitt, William G. (Wiley InterSciences, 2008)
      The use of nanoparticles and ultrasound in medicine continues to evolve. Great strides have been made in the areas of producing micelles, nanoemulsions, and solid nanoparticles that can be used in drug delivery. An effective ...
    • Ultrasonically Controlled Albumin-conjugated Liposomes for Breast Cancer Therapy 

      Awad, Nahid S.; Paul, Vinod; Al-Sayah, Mohammad; Husseini, Ghaleb (Taylor and Francis Online, 2019)
      Targeted liposomes have high potentials in the specific and effective delivery of their loaded therapeutic agents to the tumor site. Once at the tumor site, it is important that these liposomes are triggered to release ...
    • Ultrasonically triggered drug delivery: Breaking the barrier 

      Husseini, Ghaleb; Pitt, William G.; Martins, Ana M. (Elsevier, 2014)
      The adverse side-effects of chemotherapy can be minimized by delivering the therapeutics in time and space to only the desired target site. Ultrasound offers one fairly non-invasive method of accomplishing such precise ...
    • Ultrasound in drug and gene delivery 

      Pitt, William G.; Husseini, Ghaleb (Elsevier, 2008)
      In this issue, we present the current applications and future prospects of ultrasound in various aspects of drug and gene delivery. There are many advantages to ultrasound that make it ideal for the delivery of therapeutics ...
    • Ultrasound triggered drug delivery of transferrin coupled liposomes carrying the drug doxorubicin 

      Kawak, Paul Said (2020-06)
      Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases of the 21st century. It is caused by the uncontrolled division of damaged and mutated cells. Several methods have been developed to combat cancer, including surgery, radiation, and ...
    • Ultrasound Triggered Release of Estrone- Targeted Liposomes 

      Kawak, Pierre (2017-05)
      The fight against cancer has proven to be a lengthy one. Conventional treatment of cancer usually involves chemotherapy, a therapy known for its detrimental side effects. Doxorubicin, a cytotoxic anthracycline antibiotic, ...
    • Ultrasound triggered release of Trastuzumab-conjugated immunoliposomes targeting breast cancer 

      Ahmed, Amal Elsadig Elamir (2018-12)
      Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in this era. Since conventional treatment has many side effects, its use is limited, which augments the need for new smart drug delivery systems, such as nanocarriers, capable of ...
