Authors: Ansari L, Jaafari MR, Bastami TR, Malaekeh-Nikouei B Abstract The development of magnetic nanoparticles as delivery carriers to magnetically accumulate anticancer drug in cancer tissue has attracted immense interest. In the present study, magnetic mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MMSNs) with magnetite core and silica shell were synthesized. The obtained MMSNs were characterized by DLS, XRD, FT-IR, TEM and VSM in order to investigate the nanoparticle characteristics. With the focus on in vivo validation of such magnetic drug delivery systems, we selected epirubicin (EPI) as the drug. The anticancer properti...

In this study, a surface functionalized magnetic nanocomposite (NC) for codelivery of doxorubicin (DOX) and curcumin (CUR) is developed. NCs were coated with hydroxyapatite and were also cross linked with β-cyclodextrin. NCs efficiently encapsulated DOX and CUR. Release of CUR and DOX were in a sustained pH-depended pattern. β-cyclodextrin functionalization reduced protein corona according sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) analysis. As shown by flowcytometric and confocal microscopy analyses, NCs internalized efficiently by human breast carcinoma cells MCF-7 and adriamycin resis...

Authors: Mosafer J, Badiee A, Mohammadamini Z, Komeilinezhad A, Tafaghodi M Abstract Chitosan-coated ISCOMATRIX nanoparticles co-administrated with PR8 influenza virus were successfully developed via a lipid film hydration method to evaluate their in vivo immuniadjuvant potential in immunization against influenza. The prepared ISCOMATRIX (ISC) and chitosan-coated ISCOMATRIX (ISC-CIT) showed a particle size of 171 and 233 nm with a zeta potential of -9.47 and +5.65, respectively. Furthermore, ISC-CIT formulations were co-administered with PR8 antigen (PR8-ISC-CIT) and their immunogenicity was investigated aft...

Miguel Delibes (1920 –2010) was one of the most important Spanish writers of the 20th century. In his novels, he used a distinctly clear and elegant language to convey the beauty of rural Castilla. He was a professor, journalist, and director of the newspaper El Norte de Castilla. He wrote 68 fiction books and was awa rded the most prominent Spanish literary prizes, including the Premio Nadal in 1947, the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature in 1982, and the Miguel de Cervantes Prize in 1993. His literary career was cut short in 1998, after he had surgery for colon cancer.

CBS Local – People who drink more than the recommended daily limit of alcohol may harbor an unhealthy mix of bacteria in their mouths, a new study suggests. Researchers found that compared with nondrinkers, those who drank heavily had fewer “good” bacteria in their mouths. They were also hosting more “bad” bacteria — including bugs that have been linked to gum disease, heart disease, and cancer. The study is one of the latest to look at what factors influence the human “microbiome” – the trillions of bacteria and other microbes that naturally dwell in the...
