Rapid separation of bacteria from blood – Chemical aspects
To rapidly diagnose infectious organisms causing blood sepsis, bacteria must be rapidly separated from blood, a very difficult process considering that concentrations of bacteria are many orders of magnitude lower than ...
Cytosolic Delivery of Doxorubicin from Liposomes to Multidrug-Resistant Cancer Cells via Vaporization of Perfluorocarbon Droplets
A common mechanism of multidrug resistance is the upregulation of efflux pumps in the cancer cells that can more rapidly export unwanted materials (e.g. cancer drugs) out of the cell, compared to sensitive cancer cells. ...
Use of Model Predictive Control and Artificial Neural Networks to Optimize the Ultrasonic Release of a Model Drug From Liposomes
The use of echogenic liposomes to deliver chemotherapeutic agents for cancer treatment has gained wide recognition in the last 20 years. Cancerous cells can develop multiple drug resistance (MDR), in part, due to the drop ...
Anti-cancer Drug Delivery Using Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2017)
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of cells in the body and is considered as one of the major causes of death globally. There are several cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agents used to treat cancer including methotrexate, ...
Rapid separation of very low concentrations of bacteria from blood
A rapid and accurate diagnosis of the species and antibiotic resistance of bacteria in septic blood is vital to increase survival rates of patients with bloodstream infections, particularly those with carbapenem-resistant ...
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 ...
