Abstract: We have experienced various podcasts and read various articles on targeted drug delivery mechanisms, including the use of liposomes, micelles and dendrimers, biodegradable particles as well as nanotechnology. Nonetheless, one of the more recent revelations is the use of microbubbles to increase the bioavailability and in parallel, decrease the adverse effects of treatment. This technology is being spearheaded by a biomedical engineer, Prof. Eleanor Stride hailing from Oxford University. Basically, the bubbles currently being investigated are similar to the soap bubbles generated by the bubbleblowers which we find in the hands of children at our summer feasts.
