ABSTRACT Controlled shock wave has its application in drug delivery via induced membrane permeability. The magnitude of the impulse force to influence the membrane permeability can be abridged via communion effect of shock wave and external applied electric field of reduced threshold. Controlled shock wave have application at targeting membrane site and are used in drug delivery. Electric field influences the phospholipid bilayer structure by creating transient nanometer-sized pores and has…

Transient increase in membrane permeability of L1210 cells upon exposure to lithotripter shock waves in vitro
The experiments have shown that the cytotoxic effect of cisplatin in L1210 mouse leukemia cells is enhanced more than sixfold by additional exposure of the cells to shock waves, and it was speculated that the interaction of lithotripter shock waves and cis Platin in vitro is based on a short-lived increase in cell membrane permeability.

Structural change in lipid bilayers and water penetration induced by shock waves: molecular dynamics simulations.
The structural change of a phospholipid bilayer in water under the action of a shock wave is numerically studied with unsteady nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations and it is demonstrated that the resulting collapse and rebound are followed by the penetration of water molecules into the hydrophobic region of the bilayer.
