DNA damage induced by micellar-delivered doxorubicin and ultrasound: comet assay study
To minimize adverse side effects of chemotherapy, we have developed a micellar drug carrier that retains hydrophobic drugs, and then releases the drug by ultrasonic stimulation. This study investigated the DNA damage induced ...
Factors affecting acoustically triggered release of drugs from polymeric micelles
A custom ultrasonic exposure chamber with real-time fluorescence detection was used to measure acoustically-triggered drug release from Pluronic P-105 micelles under continuous wave (CW) or pulsed ultrasound in the frequency ...
Intracellular uptake of Pluronic copolymer: effects of the aggregation state
The effect of the Pluronic P-105 aggregation state on its uptake by HL-60 cells was studied by flow cytometry, fluorescence spectroscopy, and confocal and fluorescence microscopy using a fluorescently labeled Pluronic P105. ...
Ultrasonic release of doxorubicin from Pluronic P105 micelles stabilized with an interpenetrating network of N,N diethylacrylamide
Pluronic P105 micelles sequester hydrophobic drugs and release them upon insonation with low frequency ultrasound; however these micelles dissolve relatively quickly upon dilution. The objective of this research was to ...
