(BUBBLE QUEST) Drug delivery through microbubbles: the quest for the missing link
Miniature gas bubbles have the potential to locally deliver high dosages of drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and cancer which reduces side-effects. This project addresses the exact mechanisms between miniature gas bubbles, drugs, and diseased cells so we can bring this bubble therapy to patients.
The gained knowledge will revolutionize the microbubble-cell-drug interaction and invigorate international initiatives on clinical microbubble-mediated treatment. As a consequence, patients, society, and companies will benefit.
