Abstract:


Aim/Objective: The microbubble is an emerging delivery technology for the treatment of various disorders, including cancer.

Methods: Microbubble is one of the non-invasive techniques and it is prepared by small gas-filled bubbles of colloidal particles consisting of a size range less than 100μm. In the recent decade, this novel carrier encompasses various delivery applications ranging from simple targeting to ultrasound-mediated drug delivery.

Results: The microbubble contains oxygen that remains in the water for a longer period. The drug release mechanism is highly controlled as it releases the drug in the desired regions, and it increases the local effect and minimizing the toxic effect of drugs. The prolonged stability, encapsulation efficiency, and drug targeting make this carrier unique in cancer drug delivery.

Conclusion: In this review, we compile a complete assessment of microbubble technology along with its preparation methods and application in cancer drug delivery.
