Publication date: January 2019Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 109Author(s): Sandeep Kumar, Navneet AgnihotriAbstractColorectal cancer (CRC) is the most common carcinoma of the digestive tract. The slow growing nature of CRC offers a great opportunity for prevention strategies. The concept of chemoprevention of colorectal cancer using plant derived natural products is gaining substantial attention because it is an inherently safe and cost-effective alternative to conventional cancer therapies. Piperlongumine (PL), a natural alkaloid present in Piper longum Linn has been reported to exhibit notable anticance...

In conclusion, our results show that the effect of paclitaxel and oxaliplatin on the structural plasticity of DRG is retained ex vivo (for at least 30 days) and suggest the use of DRG explants derived from chemotherapy-treated mice as an efficient method to investigate the mechanisms underlying CIPN and test for possible therapeutic targets.

Authors: M R, S V, Ramirez JT, A V, L L Abstract Novel materials are explored very often by material scientists to design an efficient drug delivery system to target carcinoma cells. Among various nanosystem, functionalized Iron oxide Nanoparticles (IoNP) were definitely studied especially to target, endocyte and release drug moieties inside the cells. This IoNP platform is usually composed of an inorganic core and a highly biocompatible shell layer in order to perform numerous tasks at the same time, such as drug delivery, multimodal imaging, and instantaneous monitoring, along with collective therapeutic approach...

In this study, we analyzed the combination of ionizing radiation (IR) along with microRNA-mediated targeting of genes involved in DSB repair to sensitize human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. MicroRNAs are natural occurring modulators of gene expression and therefore represent an attractive strategy to affect the expression of DSB repair genes. As possible IR-sensitizing targets genes we selected genes of homologous recombination (HR) and non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) pathway (i.e. RAD51, BRCA2, PRKDC, XRCC5, LIG1). We examined these genes to determine whether they may be real targets of selected miRNAs by fu...

Recently, the use of oncolytic viruses in cancer therapy has become a realistic therapeutic option. Seneca Valley Virus (SVV) is a newly discovered picornavirus, which has earned a significant reputation as a potent oncolytic agent. Anthrax toxin receptor 1 (ANTXR1), one of the cellular receptors for the protective antigen secreted...

Publication date: 1 February 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, Volume 174Author(s): Pradip Das, Miriam Colombo, Davide ProsperiAbstractRecently, magnetic fluid hyperthermia using biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles as heat mediators for cancer therapy has been extensively investigated due to its high efficiency and limited side effects. However, the development of more efficient heat nanomediators that exhibit very high specific absorption rate (SAR) value is essential for clinical application to overcome the several restrictions previously encountered due to the large quantity of nanomaterial required f...
