Multifunctional nanoparticles combine ultrasound imaging and targeted anticancer therapy

Abstract:
A new targeted drug delivery method, which combines two nanoparticles into one larger one, uses ultrasound to image tumors and release the anticancer drug doxorubicin from "nanobubbles" into the same tumors. This work, conducted by Natalya Rapoport, Ph.D., D.Sc., Anne Kennedy, M.D., and colleagues at the University of Utah, appears in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute ("Multifunctional nanoparticles for combining ultrasonic tumor imaging and targeted chemotherapy").
