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 ...
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 ...
Factors Affecting the Acoustic In Vitro Release of Calcein from PEGylated Liposomes
(American Scientific Publishers, 2019)
Typical methods used in cancer treatment, including chemotherapy, are debilitating because of the various adverse side effects experienced by cancer patients. The free drug injected into the patient at given doses affects ...
Investigating the Fluorescence Quenching of Doxorubicin in Folic Acid Solutions and Its Relation to Ligand-Targeted Nanocarriers
(American Scientific Publishers, 2015)
Folic acid (FA) is one of the most utilized moieties in active (ligand) drug delivery. The folate receptor is widely expressed on the surface of several cell lines and tumors; including ovarian, brain, kidney, breast, and ...
Targeting Breast Cancer Using Hyaluronic Acid-Conjugated Liposomes Triggered with Ultrasound
(American Science Publishers, 2021)
The successful targeting of tumors can be achieved by conjugating targeting moieties to nanoparticles. These modifications allow nannocarriers to achieve greater targeting specificity through binding to specific receptors ...
Effect of pH, ultrasound frequency and power density on the release of calcein from stealth liposomes
(De Gruyter, 2016)
The use of liposomes as carriers for chemotherapeutic agents in combination with ultrasound as a stimulus to control the time and space of the drug release is a promising approach for cancer treatment, as it can reduce the ...
