Glycogen storage disease type Ia (GSDIa) is caused by an inherited defect in the glucose-6-phosphatase gene. The recent advent of targeted ultrasound-mediated delivery (USMD) of plasmid DNA (pDNA) to the liver in conjunction with microbubbles may provide an alternative treatment option. This study focuses on determining the acoustically accessible liver(More)
Ultrasound mediated delivery (USMD) in the presence of microbubbles is a potentially safe and effective method for gene therapy, offering many desired characteristics such as low toxicity, potential for repeated treatment, as well as organ specificity. In this study we tested the capability of USMD to improve gene transfection to mice livers for treating a(More)
Ultrasound-mediated delivery (USMD) of novel therapeutic agents in the presence of microbubbles is a potentially safe and effective method for gene therapy offering many desired characteristics, such as low toxicity, potential for repeated treatment, and organ specificity. In this study, we tested the capability of USMD to improve gene expression in mice(More)
The effect of tumor growth rate and treatment repeats are examined as parameters in pressure-mediated ultrasound treatments with microbubbles and Doxil in a murine breast cancer model. For this purpose, mice with a tumor doubling time of 8 and 13 days respectively received either a single or two ultrasound treatments (at 1 MHz/1 MPa) in conjunction with(More)
