Release of Doxorubicin from Unstabilized and Stabilized Micelles Under the Action of Ultrasound
(American Scientific Publishers, 2007)
Polymeric micelles are being investigated as chemotherapy drug delivery carriers using ultrasound as a trigger mechanism. The aim of this paper is to measure the release of Doxorubicin (Dox) from the core of unstabilized ...
The role of cavitation in acoustically activated drug delivery
(Elsevier Science Direct, 2005)
Pluronic P105 micelles are potential candidates as chemotherapy drug delivery vehicles using ultrasonic stimulation as a release trigger. Acoustic power has been previously shown to release two anthracycline agents from ...
Kinetics of acoustic release of doxorubicin from stabilized and unstabilized micelles and the effect of temperature
Ultrasound is being investigated as a trigger mechanism to deliver high concentrations of chemotherapy drugs to cancerous tissues using polymeric micelles. In this paper, we examined the kinetics of acoustic release of ...
Mathematical modeling of microbubble cavitation at 70 kHz and the importance of the subharmonic in drug delivery from micelles
In order to gain insight into the experimental observation of ultrasound-induced release of drugs from micelles, we modeled the dynamic oscillations of a 10-μm-diameter bubble insonated at 70 kHz. The Parlitz modification ...
Comparing microbubble cavitation at 500 kHz and 70 kHz related to micellar drug delivery using ultrasound
We have previously reported that ultrasonic drug release at 70 kHz was found to correlate with the presence of subharmonic emissions. No evidence of drug release or of the subharmonic emissions were detected in experiments ...
