Clinical-grade doxorubicin encapsulated low temperature sensitive liposomes (LTSLs) were combined with a clinical magnetic resonance-guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) platform to investigate in vivo image-guided drug delivery. Plasma pharmacokinetics were determined in 3 rabbits. Fifteen rabbits with Vx2 tumors within superficial thigh(More)
PURPOSE Objectives of this study were to: 1) develop iLTSL, a low temperature sensitive liposome co-loaded with an MRI contrast agent (ProHance® Gd-HP-DO3A) and doxorubicin, 2) characterise doxorubicin and Gd-HP-DO3A release from iLTSL and 3) investigate the ability of magnetic resonance-guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) to induce and(More)
PURPOSE Mild hyperthermia (40-45 °C) is a proven adjuvant for radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Magnetic resonance guided high intensity focused ultrasound (MR-HIFU) can non-invasively heat solid tumours under image guidance. Low temperature-sensitive liposomes (LTSLs) release their drug cargo in response to heat (>40 °C) and may improve drug delivery to solid(More)
This study aims to evaluate the utility of compressed computed tomography (CT) studies (to expedite transmission) using Motion Pictures Experts Group, Layer 4 (MPEG-4) movie formatting in combat hospitals when guiding major treatment regimens. This retrospective analysis was approved by Walter Reed Army Medical Center institutional review board with a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of embolic diameter on achievement of hypoxia after embolization in an animal model of liver tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Inoculation of VX2 tumors in the left liver lobe was performed successfully in 12 New Zealand white rabbits weighing 3.7 kg ± 0.5 (mean ± SD). Tumors were deemed eligible for oxygen measurements when the(More)
