Background: Atherosclerosis is a lipoprotein-driven disease that leads to plaque formation at specific sites of the arterial tree through intimal inflammation, fibrosis, necrosis, and calcification. Sometimes such plaques may suddenly cause life-threatening coronary thrombosis clinically described a...

Ultrasound (US)and systemic administration of microbubbles (MBs)have been shown to improve the delivery of drugs and nanoparticles (NPs)to tumor tissue. A better understanding of the mechanisms is crucial for effective delivery of NPs and drugs. To elucidate the kinetics of extravasation events, and...

The treatment of brain diseases is hindered by the blood-brain barrier (BBB) preventing most drugs from entering the brain. Focused ultrasound (FUS) with microbubbles can open the BBB safely and reversibly. Systemic drug injection might induce toxicity, but encapsulation into nanoparticles reduces a...

Microbubbles as an ultrasound contrast agent have great diagnostic value, and can be used to visualize the vascularization in a variety of organs, e.g. imaging the neo-angiogenesis in tumors. Pulse inversion (PI) is a common method for detection of these bubbles, implemented in many ultrasound scann...

Focused ultrasound (FUS) in the presence of microbubbles transiently and reversibly opens the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in rodents and humans, thereby providing a time window for increased drug delivery into brain tissue. To get insight into the underlying mechanisms that govern ultrasound (US)-medi...
