摘要

The presence of nanoparticles within an ultrasonic field has been previously shown to cause ultrasound to preferentially destroy cancerous cells over corresponding normal cells. Such treatment, termed nanoparticle-assisted ultrasound therapy (NAUT), has now been applied to subcutaneously implanted tumors in mice. Xenografted tumors were exposed to therapeutic ultrasound, with and without intratumoral injections of nanoparticles over a period of 4 weeks. Post-treatment, tumors that received nanoparticle injections were found to be substantially smaller than controls, suggesting that nanoparticle presence significantly increases the efficacy of ultrasonic treatment of solid tumors.
