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 ...
Ultrasound-Mediated Drug Delivery in Cancer Therapy: A Review
(American Scientific Publishers, 2020)
The use of ultrasound as a medical diagnostic tool began in the 1940s. Ever since, the medical applications of ultrasound have included imaging, tumor ablation, and lithotripsy; however, an ever-increasing body of literature ...
Ultrasound-sensitive cRGD-modified liposomes as a novel drug delivery system
(Taylor & Francis, 2022)
Targeted liposomes enable the delivery of encapsulated chemotherapeutics to tumours by targeting specific receptors overexpressed on the surfaces of cancer cells; this helps in reducing the systemic side effects associated ...
Hybrid Liposome/Metal–Organic Framework as a Promising Dual-Responsive Nanocarriers for Anticancer Drug Delivery
In this work, liposome-coated iron (III) benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylate (Fe-BTC) metal–organic framework is examined as a promising pH/Ultrasound dual-responsive nanocarriers for doxorubicin (DOX) delivery. The successful ...
The Kinetics of Calcein Release from Mixed Targeted Liposomes Using Ultrasound
(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 ...
Liposomal Encapsulation of Chemotherapeutics Agents Combined with the Use of Ultrasound in Cancer Treatment
(American Scientific Publishers, 2023-07)
Ultrasound (US) has numerous uses in the medical field, including imaging, tumor ablation, and lithotripsy; another interesting application of US in cancer therapy is as an external trigger in targeted drug delivery. ...
