In this context, gold nanorods are considered as very promising in cancer therapy. For this purpose, gold nanorods (GNRs) coated by stimuli-responsive thiol-end capped ABC triblock copolymer [poly (metacrylic acid)-block-poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-block-poly (N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate)-SH; P(MAAc-b-NiPAAM-b-DMAEMA)-SH] for intracellular delivery of doxorubic...

This type of cancer occurs when the mammary cells begin to grow wildly and become able to invade nearby tissues and/or promote metastases. Mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) is the accepted etiological agent of mammary tumors in mice. The identification of MMTV-like sequences and antigens in human mammary ...

Clinical trials are research studies that test a new drug or therapy in patients who have a disease. These studies are classified as phase I, II, or III depending on their purpose. Phase I: These initial, small studies test promising new drugs that effectively kill cancer cells in laboratory experiments. The goal is to understand the safe dose and capture early evidence of benefit. Phase I trials may be open to patients with any type of cancer, or only certain types of cancers more likely to respond to specific drugs. Generally, fewer than 50 patients are enrolled. Phase II: Once a phase I trial identifies a saf...
