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 ...
Acoustically activated release of estrone-targeted liposomes used for breast cancer treatment
Chemotherapy is frequently used in cancer treatment. However, side effects associated with this type of treatment are often detrimental to the patient's health. This thesis discusses a novel approach of delivering a cytotoxic ...
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, ...
Investigating and Modeling the Acoustic Release of Doxorubicin from Folate Targeted Micelles
To minimize the adverse side effects of conventional chemotherapy, a targeted micellar drug carrier was investigated that retains hydrophobic drugs in its core and then releases the drug via ultrasound. This thesis reports ...
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 ...
