Ultrasonically Controlled Albumin-conjugated Liposomes for Breast Cancer Therapy
(Taylor and Francis Online, 2019)
Targeted liposomes have high potentials in the specific and effective delivery of their loaded therapeutic agents to the tumor site. Once at the tumor site, it is important that these liposomes are triggered to release ...
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 ...
The effect of pegylation and targeting moieties on the ultrasound-mediated drug release from liposomes
(ACS Publications, 2019)
The use of targeted liposomes encapsulating chemotherapy drugs enhances the specific targeting of cancer cells, thus, reducing the side effects of these agents and providing a more patient-friendly treatment. Targeted ...
Ultrasound-responsive Nanocarriers in Cancer Treatment: a review
(American Chemical Society, 2021)
The safe and effective delivery of anticancer agents to diseased tissues is one of the significant challenges in cancer therapy. Conventional anticancer agents are generally cytotoxins with poor pharmacokinetics and ...
