Journal Article
Vince, R. V., Madden, L. A., Alonso, C. M., Savoie, H., Boyle, R. W., Todman, M., …Greenman, J. (2011). Identification of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus-specific peptides for targeted photoantimicrobial chemotherapy. Photochemical & photobiological sciences : an international journal, 10(4), 515-522. https://doi.org/10.1039/c0pp00267d

The increasing prevalence of multi-drug resistant bacteria, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), necessitates development of alternative modes of bacterial targeting which are not hindered by antibiotic resistance and minimise...

Polyacrylamide nanoparticles as a delivery system in photodynamic therapy (2011)
Journal Article
Kuruppuarachchi, M., Lowry, A., Savoie, H., Alonso, C., & Boyle, R. W. (2011). Polyacrylamide nanoparticles as a delivery system in photodynamic therapy. Molecular pharmaceutics, 8(3), 920-931. https://doi.org/10.1021/mp200023y

Nanoparticles can be targeted towards, and accumulate in, tumor tissue by the enhanced permeability and retention effect, if sequestration by the reticuloendothelial system (RES) is avoided. The application of nanoparticles in the field of drug deliv... Read More about Polyacrylamide nanoparticles as a delivery system in photodynamic therapy.
