Non-Viral Gene Transfection with Ultrasound: Is 100% Transfection Possible?
(American Scientific Publishers, 2012)
Ultrasound has been used as a modality to enhance the transfection of cells, purportedly via entry of genetic material through defects in the cell membrane produced by bubble cavitation events. A mathematical model was ...
Synthesis of Metal-Organic Framework from Iron Nitrate and 2,6-Naphthalenedicarboxylic Acid and Its Application as Drug Carrier
(American Scientific Publishers, 2018)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are highly crystalline porous organic–inorganic materials that are comprised of metal salts and organic linkers. The common synthetic methodologies of MOFs include: solvothermal, microwave-assisted, ...
Alkyl Monolayers on Silica Surfaces Prepared Using Neat, Heated Dimethylmonochlorosilanes with Low Vapor Pressures
(American Chemical Society, 2003)
Effect of pH, ultrasound frequency and power density on the release of calcein from stealth liposomes
(De Gruyter, 2016)
The use of liposomes as carriers for chemotherapeutic agents in combination with ultrasound as a stimulus to control the time and space of the drug release is a promising approach for cancer treatment, as it can reduce the ...
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 ...
The role of cavitation in acoustically activated drug delivery
(Elsevier Science Direct, 2005)
Pluronic P105 micelles are potential candidates as chemotherapy drug delivery vehicles using ultrasonic stimulation as a release trigger. Acoustic power has been previously shown to release two anthracycline agents from ...
Graphene-based drug delivery systems
Drug delivery is one of the prominent biomedical applications of graphene nanomaterials in the current scenario. The rapid growth in the graphene-based drug delivery systems showed the potential of this nanomaterial in the ...
Alkyl Monolayers on Silica Surfaces Prepared from Neat, Heated (Tridecafluoro-1,1,2,2-tetrahydrooctyl)-1- dimethylchlorosilane Analyzed by XPS
(American Vacuum Society, 2004)
Silane monolayers on silica, prepared from mono-, di-, and trichlorosilanes, are widely used in industry for surface functionalization and modification. However, unlike di- and trichlorosilanes, monochlorosilanes are ...
Analysis of 7,13-Bis((8-hydroxy-2-quinolinyl)methyl)-1,4-dimethyl-1,4,7,13-tetraaza-10-thiacyclopentadecane by XPS
(American Vacuum Society, 2004)
Highly toxic metals abound in the environment as a result of pollution. Macrocyclic ligands have been designed that are selective in binding certain toxic metals. This allows for a sensitive means of detecting these poisonous ...
Kinetics and thermodynamics of acoustic release of doxorubicin from non-stabilized polymeric micelles
This paper studies the thermodynamic characteristics of ultrasound-activated release of Doxorubicin (Dox) from micelles. The release and re-encapsulation of Dox into Pluronic® P105 micelles was measured by recording the ...
