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 ...
The use of ultrasound to release chemotherapeutic drugs from micelles and liposomes
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
Several drug delivery systems have been investigated to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy by encapsulating the therapeutic agent in a nanosized carrier until it reaches the tumor site. Many of these particles are ...
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 ...
