Preparation of albumin-targeted liposomes and the study of their release characteristics using ultrasound
The main objective of this thesis was to investigate the enhancement of drug delivery using targeted liposomes triggered by ultrasound. In this thesis, a thorough literature review on cancer and drug delivery systems ...
Ultrasound triggered release of Trastuzumab-conjugated immunoliposomes targeting breast cancer
Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in this era. Since conventional treatment has many side effects, its use is limited, which augments the need for new smart drug delivery systems, such as nanocarriers, capable of ...
The Use of Transferrin and Ultrasound in Cancer Treatment
Site-specific drug delivery represents an attractive approach in cancer treatment to reduce the undesirable side-effects of anticancer therapeutics and increase the accumulation of drugs at tumor sites. Surface modification ...
Using a Cavitation Model to Represent the Acoustic Release Kinetics from Folated Micelles
Anti-neoplastic drugs used for cancer treatment have various damaging effects on healthy cells, leading to several side effects in patients undergoing chemotherapy. The encapsulation of these agents in nanoparticles, such ...
Doxorubicin-encapsulated Albumin liposomes with acoustic triggering for cancer treatment
With cancer being the leading cause of death worldwide, increasing economic and social resources are being directed by researchers and healthcare professionals to treat the disease, or at least provide palliative care to ...
The Effect of Ultrasound on the Drug Delivery of RGD-Targeted Liposomes
Approaches used to treat cancer, with the most prominent being chemotherapy, have detrimental effects on patients’ health. Doxorubicin, a chemotherapeutic agent, alters normal cellular functions and can cause many fatal ...
