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 ...
Facile Ultrasound-Triggered Release of Calcein and Doxorubicin from Iron-Based Metal-Organic Frameworks
(American Scientific Publishers, 2020)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are promising new nanocarriers with potential use in anticancer drug delivery. However, there is a scarcity of studies on the uptake and release of guest molecules associated with MOF ...
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 ...
Over-Pressure Suppresses Ultrasonic-Induced Drug Uptake
Ultrasound (US) is used to enhance and target delivery of drugs and genes to cancer tissues. The present study further examines the role of acoustic cavitation in US-induced permeabilization of cell membranes and subsequent ...
Investigating the Stability of eLiposomes at Elevated Temperatures
(Sage Publishing, 2014)
eLiposomes encapsulate a perfluorocarbon nanoemulsion droplet inside a liposome. Ultrasound is then used as a trigger mechanism to vaporize the perfluorocarbon, break the liposome, and release the desired drug to the tumor ...
