Interleukin-12 (IL-12) gene therapy is expected to be effective against cancers because it primes the immune system for cancer cells. In this therapy, it is important to induce IL-12 gene expression in the tumor tissue. Sonoporation is an attractive technique for developing non-invasive and non-viral gene delivery systems, but simple sonoporation using only(More)
We previously developed novel liposomal nanobubbles (Bubble liposomes [BL]) that oscillate and collapse in an ultrasound field, generating heat and shock waves. We aimed to investigate the feasibility of cancer therapy using the combination of BL and ultrasound. In addition, we investigated the anti-tumor mechanism of this cancer therapy. Colon-26 cells(More)
Melanoma has an early tendency to metastasize, and the majority of the resulting deaths are caused by metastatic melanoma. It is therefore important to develop effective therapies for metastasis. Dendritic cell (DC)-based cancer immunotherapy has been proposed as an effective therapeutic strategy for metastasis and recurrence due to prime tumor-specific(More)
