Enhanced drug delivery in rabbit VX2 tumours using thermosensitive liposomes and MRI-controlled focused ultrasound hyperthermia.

Abstract

PURPOSE The efficacy of anticancer drugs in solid tumours is impaired by their inability to reach all cancer cells in sufficient concentration to cause cytotoxicity. Hyperthermia-triggered release of drugs from thermosensitive liposomes can increase tumour drug concentration, but tumour-specific drug delivery requires precise temperature control, and… (More)
