phase transitions, gene delivery, ultrasound
A computer model was written that simulates the transformation of a nanoemulsion droplet to a gas bubble by the application of ultrasound. Experimentally such a technique could be used to enhance non-viral gene transfection beyond the boundary of the endothelial lining of the circulatory system, particularly in tumors exhibiting enhanced permeation and retention of nanoparticles.
