Liposomal drug release using ultrasound and modeling release dynamics for model predictive controller design
Chemotherapy is widely used for cancer treatment; however, it causes unwanted side effects in patients such as fatigue, weight loss, pain, hair fall and nausea. Those side effects are due to the fact that most of the ...
Synergistic Nanomedicine: Passive, Active, and Ultrasound-Triggered Drug Delivery in Cancer Treatment
(American Scientific Publishers, 2015)
Nanocarriers are heavily researched as drug delivery vehicles capable of sequestering antineoplastic agents and then releasing their contents at the desired location. The feasibility of using such carriers stems from their ...
Review on Triggered Liposomal Drug Delivery with a Focus on Ultrasound
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2015)
Chemotherapy is widely used for cancer treatment; however, it causes unwanted side effects in patients. To avoid these adverse effects, nanocarriers have been developed, which can be loaded with the chemotherapeutic agents, ...
Predicting the Release of Chemotherapeutics From the Core of Polymeric Micelles Using Ultrasound
(IEEE Explore, 2015)
In this paper, the estimation of acoustic drug release from micelles is addressed. The release is measured as a decrease in fluorescence once ultrasound is applied. Initially, a Kalman filter is used to fuse the drug ...
