Acoustically activated release of estrone-targeted liposomes used for breast cancer treatment
Chemotherapy is frequently used in cancer treatment. However, side effects associated with this type of treatment are often detrimental to the patient's health. This thesis discusses a novel approach of delivering a cytotoxic ...
Liposomal drug release using ultrasound and modeling release dynamics for model predictive controller design
Chemotherapy is widely used for cancer treatment; however, it causes unwanted side effects in patients such as fatigue, weight loss, pain, hair fall and nausea. Those side effects are due to the fact that most of the ...
Investigating and Modeling the Acoustic Release of Doxorubicin from Folate Targeted Micelles
To minimize the adverse side effects of conventional chemotherapy, a targeted micellar drug carrier was investigated that retains hydrophobic drugs in its core and then releases the drug via ultrasound. This thesis reports ...
Ultrasonic-Activated Micellar Drug Delivery for Cancer Treatment
(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 ...
Drug Delivery Systems Based on Polymeric Micelles and Ultrasound: A Review
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2016)
Anti-neoplastic drugs used for cancer treatment often produce damage to healthy cells, leading to severe side effects in patients undergoing chemotherapy. The encapsulation of these agents in nanoparticles reduces the ...
Anti-cancer Drug Delivery Using Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2017)
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of cells in the body and is considered as one of the major causes of death globally. There are several cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agents used to treat cancer including methotrexate, ...
