Final Report - SONODRUGS (Image-controlled Ultrasound-induced Drug Delivery)
Project ID: 213706Funded under: FP7-NMP
This is the final report of the SONODRUGS project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project addressed clinical needs by developing novel drug delivery technologies for localised treatment of cardiovascular disease and cancer. The report begins by providing an overview of the project results noting that nanocarriers have been developed for ultrasound mediated drug delivery: Polymer microbubbles for co-administration, drug-loaded liposomes attached to lipid microbubbles for US-pressure induced drug delivery, and liposomes for hyperthermia-induced drug delivery. This is then followed by a description of the innovations that have been devised in achieving these results. The report concludes with a description of the potential impact of the project to society.
