Measuring the Acoustic Release of a Chemotherapeutic Agent from Folate-Targeted Polymeric Micelles
(American Scientific Publishers, 2018)
In this paper, we compare the use of Bayesian filters for the estimation of release and reencapsulation rates of a chemotherapeutic agent (namely Doxorubicin) from nanocarriers in an acoustically activated drug release ...
Drug delivery in pluronic micelles: effect of high-frequency ultrasound on drug release from micelles and intracellular uptake
The effect of high-frequency ultrasound on doxorubicin (DOX) release from Pluronic micelles and intracellular DOX uptake was studied for promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells, ovarian carcinoma drug-sensitive and multidrug-resistant ...
Mapping of Embedded Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes in Poly(vinyl alcohol)/Nanotube Composite Using Electrostatic Force Microscopy
(Taylor & Francis, 2012)
In the present study, electrostatic force microscopy (EFM) was used as a nondestructive tool for mapping individual functionalized single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) incorporated in a poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA)/CNT ...
Self-aligned mechanical attachment of carbon nanotubes to silicon dioxide structures by selective silicon dioxide chemical-vapor deposition
(American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2003)
A self-aligned thin-ﬁlm deposition technique was developed to mechanically attach carbon nanotubes to surfaces for the fabrication of structurally robust nanotube-based nanomechanical devices. Single-walled carbon nanotubes ...
Phase transitions of perfluorocarbon nanoemulsion induced with ultrasound: A mathematical model
While ultrasound has been used in many medical and industrial applications, only recently has research been done on phase transformations induced by ultrasound. This paper presents a numerical model and the predicted results ...
Optimizing the use of ultrasound to deliver chemotherapeutic agents to cancer cells from polymeric micelles
In this study, we present an artificial neural network (ANN) model that attempts to predict the dynamic release of doxorubicin (Dox) from P105 micelles under different ultrasonic power densities at 20 kHz. The goal is to ...
Alkyl Monolayers on Silica Surfaces Prepared from Neat, Heated ClSi(CH₃)₂(CH₂)₆CH=CH₂ Analyzed by XPS
(American Vacuum Society, 2002)
Silane monolayers on silica, prepared from mono-, di-, and trichlorosilanes, are widely used in industry for surface functionalization and modification. However, unlike di-and trichlorosilanes, monochlorosilanes are ...
Ultrasonically triggered drug delivery: Breaking the barrier
The adverse side-effects of chemotherapy can be minimized by delivering the therapeutics in time and space to only the desired target site. Ultrasound offers one fairly non-invasive method of accomplishing such precise ...
Ultrasound-triggered Release from Micelles
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013)
Multi-Model Investigation and Adaptive Estimation of the Acoustic Release of a Model Drug From Liposomes
This paper researches a suitable mathematical model that can reliably predict the release of a model drug (namely calcein) from biologically targeted liposomal nanocarriers triggered by ultrasound. Using mathematical models, ...
