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 ...
Preparation of albumin-targeted liposomes and the study of their release characteristics using ultrasound
The main objective of this thesis was to investigate the enhancement of drug delivery using targeted liposomes triggered by ultrasound. In this thesis, a thorough literature review on cancer and drug delivery systems ...
Ultrasound triggered release of Trastuzumab-conjugated immunoliposomes targeting breast cancer
Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in this era. Since conventional treatment has many side effects, its use is limited, which augments the need for new smart drug delivery systems, such as nanocarriers, capable of ...
The Use of Transferrin and Ultrasound in Cancer Treatment
Site-specific drug delivery represents an attractive approach in cancer treatment to reduce the undesirable side-effects of anticancer therapeutics and increase the accumulation of drugs at tumor sites. Surface modification ...
The Effect of Ultrasound on the Drug Delivery of RGD-Targeted Liposomes
Approaches used to treat cancer, with the most prominent being chemotherapy, have detrimental effects on patients’ health. Doxorubicin, a chemotherapeutic agent, alters normal cellular functions and can cause many fatal ...
