    • Dual-Targeting and Stimuli-Triggered Liposomal Drug Delivery in Cancer Treatment 

      AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Pitt, William G.; Husseini, Ghaleb (American Chemical Society, 2021)
      The delivery of chemotherapeutics to solid tumors using smart drug delivery systems (SDDSs) takes advantage of the unique physiology of tumors (i.e., disordered structure, leaky vasculature, abnormal extracellular matrix ...
    • The Kinetics of Calcein Release from Mixed Targeted Liposomes Using Ultrasound 

      AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Husseini, Ghaleb; Pitt, William G. (American Scientific Publishers, 2022)
      Site-specific delivery of chemotherapeutics using actively targeted-stimuli-responsive liposomes is a promising approach to enhance the therapeutic efficiency of anti-cancer drugs while reducing the associated undesirable ...
    • Modeling of Anti-cancer Drug Release Kinetics from Liposomes and Micelles: A review 

      AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Paul, Vinod; Awad, Nahid S.; Husseini, Ghaleb (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2021)
      Nanocarriers, such as liposomes and micelles, were developed to enhance the delivery of therapeutic drugs to malignant tissues. Internal or external stimuli can be applied to achieve spatiotemporal controlled release from ...
    • Modeling of Drug Release Kinetics from Stimuli- Responsive Micelles and Liposomes: A review 

      AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Paul, Vinod; Awad, Nahid S.; Husseini, Ghaleb (IEEE, 2021)
      Nanocarriers such as micelles and liposomes were developed to enhance the delivery of therapeutic drugs to tumors. Internal or external stimuli can be applied to achieve spatiotemporal controlled release from these carriers. ...
    • Ultrasound-responsive Nanocarriers in Cancer Treatment: a review 

      Awad, Nahid S.; Paul, Vinod; Haar, Gail ter; Allen, Theresa M.; Pitt, William G.; AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Husseini, Ghaleb (American Chemical Society, 2021)
      The safe and effective delivery of anticancer agents to diseased tissues is one of the significant challenges in cancer therapy. Conventional anticancer agents are generally cytotoxins with poor pharmacokinetics and ...
    • Ultrasound‑triggered herceptin liposomes for breast cancer therapy 

      Elamir, Amal; Ajith, Saniha Aysha; AlSawaftah, Nour Majdi; Abuwatfa, Waad Hussein; Mukhopadhyay, Debasmita; Paul, Vinod; Al-Sayah, Mohammad; Awad, Nahid S.; Husseini, Ghaleb (Nature, 2021)
      The functionalization of liposomes with monoclonal antibodies is a potential strategy to increase the specificity of liposomes and reduce the side-effects associated with chemotherapeutic agents. The active targeting of ...
