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 ...
Factors Affecting the Acoustic In Vitro Release of Calcein from PEGylated Liposomes
(American Scientific Publishers, 2019)
Typical methods used in cancer treatment, including chemotherapy, are debilitating because of the various adverse side effects experienced by cancer patients. The free drug injected into the patient at given doses affects ...
Review on Triggered Liposomal Drug Delivery with a Focus on Ultrasound
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2015)
Chemotherapy is widely used for cancer treatment; however, it causes unwanted side effects in patients. To avoid these adverse effects, nanocarriers have been developed, which can be loaded with the chemotherapeutic agents, ...
Improving the Efficacy of Anticancer Drugs via Encapsulation and Acoustic Release
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2018)
Conventional chemotherapeutics lack the specificity and controllability, thus may poison healthy cells while attempting to kill cancerous ones. Newly developed nano-drug delivery systems have shown promise in delivering ...
Effect of pH, ultrasound frequency and power density on the release of calcein from stealth liposomes
(De Gruyter, 2016)
The use of liposomes as carriers for chemotherapeutic agents in combination with ultrasound as a stimulus to control the time and space of the drug release is a promising approach for cancer treatment, as it can reduce the ...
