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 ...
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 ...
Degradation kinetics of stabilized Pluronic micelles under the action of ultrasound
The majority of research in the area of acoustically-activated drug delivery from stabilized micelles has been focused on the rapid release of chemotherapy drugs from the core of such nano-carriers. Previous publications ...
Predicting the Release of Chemotherapeutics From the Core of Polymeric Micelles Using Ultrasound
(IEEE Explore, 2015)
In this paper, the estimation of acoustic drug release from micelles is addressed. The release is measured as a decrease in fluorescence once ultrasound is applied. Initially, a Kalman filter is used to fuse the drug ...
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 ...
