Ultrasonic-Activated Micellar Drug Delivery for Cancer Treatment
(Wiley InterSciences, 2008)
The use of nanoparticles and ultrasound in medicine continues to evolve. Great strides have been made in the areas of producing micelles, nanoemulsions, and solid nanoparticles that can be used in drug delivery. An effective ...
Ultrasound-Induced Calcein Release From eLiposomes
Ultrasound is explored as a method of inducing the release of encapsulated materials from eLiposomes, defined as liposomes containing emulsion droplets. Emulsions were formed using perfluorohexane and perfluoropentane. ...
Distribution of Doxorubicin in Rats Undergoing Ultrasonic Drug Delivery
Ultrasound (US) increases efficacy of drugs delivered from micelles, but the pharmacokinetics have not been studied previously. In this study, US was used to deliver doxorubicin (Dox) sequestered in micelles in an in vivo ...
Micelles and nanoparticles for ultrasonic drug and gene delivery
Drug delivery research employing micelles and nanoparticles has expanded in recent years. Of particular interest is the use of these nanovehicles that deliver high concentrations of cytotoxic drugs to diseased tissues ...
Factors affecting acoustically triggered release of drugs from polymeric micelles
A custom ultrasonic exposure chamber with real-time fluorescence detection was used to measure acoustically-triggered drug release from Pluronic P-105 micelles under continuous wave (CW) or pulsed ultrasound in the frequency ...
Role of frequency and mechanical index in ultrasonic-enhanced chemotherapy in rats
Purpose The therapeutic effect of ultrasound and micellar-encapsulated doxorubicin was studied in vivo using a tumor-bearing rat model with emphasis on how tumor growth rate is affected by ultrasonic parameters such as ...
