    • Investigating the acoustic release of doxorubicin from targeted micelles 

      Husseini, Ghaleb; Velluto, Diana; Kherbeck, Laura; Pitt, William G.; Hubbell, Jeffrey A.; Christensen, Douglas A. (Elsevier, 2013)
      The main problem associated with the administration of anti-cancer medication is that the drug is delivered throughout the body causing undesirable side effects. Therefore, it is important to synthesize drug carriers capable ...
    • Kinetics of Ultrasonic Drug Delivery from Targeted Micelles 

      Husseini, Ghaleb; Kherbeck, Laura; Pitt, William G.; Hubbell, Jeffrey A.; Christensen, Douglas A.; Velluto, Diana (American Scientific Publishers, 2015)
      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 ultrasonic activation. This ...
    • Targeting the Folate Receptor: Effects of Conjugating Folic Acid to DOX Loaded Polymeric Micelles 

      Elkhodiry, Mohamed A.; Husseini, Ghaleb; Velluto, Diana (Bentham Science Publishers, 2016)
      In this paper, we report on a potential cancer drug delivery system that utilizes the ligand targeting of the folate receptor. Our drug delivery system consists of Pluronic-P105 micelles, targeted with folic acid moieties. ...
