About This Project
Using low intensity pulsed ultrasound to selectively lyse murine blood cancer cells in an intravenous pump system
Current cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation leave patients susceptible to infections by killing as many healthy cells as diseased ones. Using low intensity pulsed ultrasound(LIPUS) to lyse leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma cells may be a viable treatment because cancer cells have different mechanical properties.
