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 ...
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 ...
Anti-cancer Drug Delivery Using Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Ultrasound.
Cancer is defined as the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells. Although billions of dollars have been spent on cancer research to develop its treatments, cancer still remains a major illness for mankind, partly due to the ...
Ultrasound Triggered Release of Estrone- Targeted Liposomes
The fight against cancer has proven to be a lengthy one. Conventional treatment of cancer usually involves chemotherapy, a therapy known for its detrimental side effects. Doxorubicin, a cytotoxic anthracycline antibiotic, ...
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 ...
