Nanobubble-enhanced sonothrombolysis: From benchtop to bedside

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Microbubbles have been shown to enhance the rate of clot dissolution with ultrasound. In vivo work in a canine model has shown good efficacy for clot dissolution with ultrasound and intravenously administered MRX-815 nanobubbles (1,2). In this abstract we describe results in an in vitro clot lysis model with and without lytic drugs and also describe early results of clinical trials.
