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 ...
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 ...
Kinetics of acoustic release of doxorubicin from stabilized and unstabilized micelles and the effect of temperature
Ultrasound is being investigated as a trigger mechanism to deliver high concentrations of chemotherapy drugs to cancerous tissues using polymeric micelles. In this paper, we examined the kinetics of acoustic release of ...
Investigating the acoustic release of doxorubicin from targeted micelles
The main problem associated with the administration of anti-cancer medication is that the drug is delivered throughout the body causing undesirable side effects. Therefore, it is important to synthesize drug carriers capable ...
Drug Delivery Systems Based on Polymeric Micelles and Ultrasound: A Review
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2016)
Anti-neoplastic drugs used for cancer treatment often produce damage to healthy cells, leading to severe side effects in patients undergoing chemotherapy. The encapsulation of these agents in nanoparticles reduces the ...
Ultrasonic Drug Delivery Using Micelles and Liposomes
The encapsulation of drugs in nanocarriers revolutionized research in drug delivery, especially in cancer chemotherapeutics. Several nanosystems have been developed including liposomes, polymeric micelles, dendrimers, solid ...
