Ultrasound-mediated transport of nanoparticles and the influence of particle density

Abstract:

Cancer therapeutics are limited in efficacy by poor penetration into tumour tissue. This doctoral thesis aims to explore how changing the density of a therapeutic could influence its ultrasound-mediated delivery and penetration depth, thereby testing the hypothesis that increasing particle density increases penetration depth of nanoparticles under ultrasound exposure. Density-enhanced transport in the presence of ultrasound-induced cavitation is studied utilising a combination of numerical...
