Nanoparticles and ultrasound for delivery of model macromolecular anti-cancer drugs in tumors

Proceedings of the Second Joint 24th Annual Conference and the Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society] [Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2002

Penetration of macromolecular anti-cancer agents from blood into tumor cells is poor due to the physiological barriers: tumor capillary wall, interstitium, and cancer cell membrane. We proposed to use laser- or ultrasound-induced cavitation to enhance anti-cancer drug delivery through these barriers. Interaction of ultrasound with exogenous nanoparticles with certain acoustic properties may provide cavitation selectively in tumors and, therefore, may ...

  • Nanoparticles and ultrasound for delivery of model macromolecular anti-cancer drugs in tumors

    Penetration of macromolecular anti-cancer agents from blood into tumor cells is poor due to the physiological barriers: tumor capillary wall, interstitium, and cancer cell membrane. We proposed to use laser- or ultrasound-induced cavitation to enhance anti-cancer drug delivery through these barriers. Interaction of ultrasound with exogenous nanoparticles with certain acoustic properties may provide cavitation selectively in tumors and, therefore, may provide safe and efficient delivery of anti-cancer drugs in cancer cells without damage to normal tissues. In this paper, we studied enhanced delivery of model macromolecular anti-cancer drugs with ultrasound-induced cavitation in mice bearing human colon (KM20) and breast (MCF-7) tumors. Fluorescent rhodamine-dextrans of different molecular weight (10, 70, and 2,000 kDa) served as model drugs simulating antisense oligonucleotides, antibodies, and genes, respectively. Immunohistochemical staining of tumor vasculature with CD31 was used to visualize tumor blood vessels. Our studies demonstrated enhanced penetration of the drugs from blood vessels into tumor interstitium when ultrasound was applied in combination with polymer nanoparticle injections. Our results suggest that this drug delivery technique can potentially be used for efficient cancer chemo- and biotherapy.

  • Clinical microwave breast imaging — 2D results and the evolution to 3D

    The incidence of breast cancer and associated deaths are a recognized world health problem. Conventional screening approaches such as x-ray mammography, ultrasound and increasingly contrast-enhanced MRI are life saving to many women. However, the sensitivity and specificity of these modalities are still limited and there is clearly room for alternatives. Microwave imaging is a potentially important approach in this area because the tissue dielectric properties present important functional information which can be exploited to improve overall sensitivity and specificity in breast imaging. At Dartmouth College, our microwave breast imaging system is currently being used in pilot clinical studies for both tumor diagnosis and for monitoring treatment response during neoadjuvant chemotherapy. These early 2D imaging studies have demonstrated significance with respect to distinguishing tumors from normal tissue in the diagnostic mode and an ability to predict treatment response at a relatively early stage of treatment. The associated innovations and clinical results set a solid foundation as we advance towards full 3D imaging.

  • Analitical Study of Chirp Pulse Microwave Breast Radar (CP-MBR)

    Feasibility of a new microwave radar imaging system for early stage breast tumor detection using chirp pulse microwaves was investigated numerically. In the FDTD-based simulation, the basic idea of discriminating tumors from surrounding inhomogeneous breast tissues was verified and the effects of the bandwidth of CP-MBR on the resolution were examined by varying the frequency band from 2-3 GHz to 1-4 GHz.

  • Simulation of dye-enhanced near-IR transillumination imaging of tumors

    Contrast agents with distinctive absorption and emission spectra, in combination with multispectral near-IR imaging, may provide a mechanism for the detection of breast cancer. While there is evidence of preferential drug accumulation at a tumor site, an important question is the concentration required to allow discrimination through tissue. An estimate of agent absorption effects is obtained from the solution of the diffusion equation in homogeneous tissue. In this paper absorption signatures derived from the diffusion equation and Monte Carlo simulation of a near-IR contrast agent, indocyanine green, are compared. Tradeoff curves are generated among the key relevant parameters; contrast, depth, and agent concentration. It is also shown that the diffusion equation solution for a localized contrast agent leads to an algorithm to estimate tumor location and depth from near-IR images. The algorithm is applied to in-vitro IR measurements of a tissue sample with an injected contrast agent. The results have application to the design of contrast enhancing drugs and associated discrimination algorithms.

  • Morphological operators on the segmentation of breast ultrasound images

    This work presents a computerized lesion segmentation technique on breast ultrasound images. There were applied known techniques such as morphological filtering, Watershed transform and average radial derivative function. To evaluate the performance of the proposed method the resulting segmentation contours were compared with 36 breast US images manually delineated by two senior radiologists. Further, two evaluation parameters were used: the percentage of coincidence (CP) and the proportional distance (PD). The former indicates the similarity between contours, while the latter express the dissimilarity. The accuracy of the proposed method was evaluated by considering images with CP ges 80% and PD les 10% as adequately delineated.

  • Detection of small tumors in the breast: combining tomography with digital subtraction

    Digital subtraction mammography is used to detect gross radiographic changes in breast tissue, but small tumors are missed. The inability to ensure exact positioning of the breast in the mamography machine every time, due to its loose and non-rigid nature causes a large amount of misregistration noise in the difference image. Since the size of the noise is comparable to the size of the tumor being detected, tumors seldom get detected before they metastasize. We propose a new technique based on submamograms. Submamograms are projection images of slabs of the breast which are computed from standard mammograms taken from a few different angles. Subtraction images derived from corresponding submamograms show more clearly those features in the breast that have undergone a change in the interval between examinations.
