Focussed ultrasound used to improve effects of cancer drugs

Focussed ultrasound used to improve effects of cancer drugs

Researchers have made a breakthrough in more precisely targeting drugs to cancers. Using ultrasound and lipid drug carriers (liposomes), a multi-disciplinary team of biomedical engineers, oncologists, radiologists and anaesthetists at the University of Oxford have developed a new way to improve the targeting of cancer drugs to tumours.

World’s first fluid-shaping technology for biomedicine

Despite improvements in our ability to manipulate ever-smaller volumes using microfluidics, the technology remains inaccessible to many biologists as it often requires complex manufacturing facilities (such as soft lithography) and uses materials foreign to cell biology (such as polydimethylsiloxane).
