This paper discusses the use of microbubbles in the treatment of tumorous cancers and how they can reduce the side-effects and increase the effectiveness of current chemotherapy drugs. The microbubbles are used with ultrasound to focus the treatment at the tumor site, making them a promising technology for targeted cancer treatment. Statistics on the prevalence of cancer along with information on the downfalls of current chemotherapy techniques are used to clearly demonstrate how the… CONTINUE READING
