Ultrasound-Mediated Drug Delivery in Cancer Therapy: A Review
(American Scientific Publishers, 2020)
The use of ultrasound as a medical diagnostic tool began in the 1940s. Ever since, the medical applications of ultrasound have included imaging, tumor ablation, and lithotripsy; however, an ever-increasing body of literature ...
Ultrasound-induced doxorubicin release from folate-targeted and non-targeted P105 micelles: a modeling study
(De Gruyter, 2016)
The aim of this work is to study the kinetics of ultrasound (70 kHz) – using a kinetic model that takes into account cavitation events and drug re-encapsulation upon the cessation of the acoustic field. The simulation ...
Identification of the Uncertainty Structure to Estimate the Acoustic Release of Chemotherapeutics From Polymeric Micelles
This paper estimates the acoustic drug release from micelles after accurately identifying the underlying statistical noise characteristics in experimental data. The drug release is measured as a change in fluorescence as ...
Investigating the Release Mechanism of Calcein from eLiposomes at Higher Temperatures
(American Scientific Publishers, 2014)
Numerous nanocarriers are currently being investigated as drug delivery vehicles for transporting chemotherapeutics to cancer cells. Our research group has recently synthesized a new generation of echogenic liposomes based ...
Ultrasound‑triggered herceptin liposomes for breast cancer therapy
The functionalization of liposomes with monoclonal antibodies is a potential strategy to increase the specificity of liposomes and reduce the side-effects associated with chemotherapeutic agents. The active targeting of ...
