This article evaluates the anticancer drug delivery performances of two nanohydrogels composed of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-itaconic anhydride) [P(NIPAAm-co-IA)], poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and Fe3O4 nanoparticles. For this purpose, the magnetite nanohydrogels (MNHGs) were loaded with doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX) as a universal anticancer drug. The morphologies and magnetic properties of the DOX-loaded MNHGs were investigated using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM), respectively. The sizes and zeta potentials (ξ) of the MNHGs and their corresponding DOX-loaded nanosy...
CONCLUSIONS: The antibacterial effect of ciprofloxacin was improved by encapsulation of drug in chitosan nanomicelles. PMID: 29452500 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Zidan MF, Ibrahim HM, Afouna MI, Ibrahim EA Abstract The aim of this study was to explore the feasibility of complexing the poorly water-soluble drug atorvastatin calcium (AC) with β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) based nanosponges (NS), which offer advantages of improving dissolution rate and eventually oral bioavailability. Blank NS were fabricated at first by reacting β-CD with the cross-linker carbonyldiimidazole at different molar ratios (1:2, 1:4 and 1:8), then NS of highest solubilization extent for AC were complexed with AC. AC loaded NS (AC-NS) were characterized for various physicochemical pr...
BOSTON (CBS) — Could drinking soda affect your chances of having a baby? Researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health surveyed almost 5,000 men and women and found that drinking one or more sugar-sweetened beverages a day, by either partner, male or female, was associated with a 20% lower chance of getting pregnant each month. Prior studies have found that drinking soda can lead to poor semen quality, as well as obesity and type two diabetes which also can impact fertility. The researchers found little impact from drinking fruit juices or diet soda, but they say that couples who want to get pregnant m...

Among adults 55 and younger, chest pain is the predominant symptom of a heart attack, but women tend to experience a greater number of additional symptoms too - and those lesser-known symptoms can be dangerously misunderstood, a new study finds.
BOSTON (CBS) — A new study finds that regularly using cleaning sprays or other cleaning products could put women at risk for lung damage. Researchers in Norway looked at data from more than 6,000 people followed for more than 20 years and found that women who clean regularly experience a faster reduction in lung function than women who don’t. They found, specifically for women who work as cleaners, the decline in lung function was almost as large as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years Cleaning products contain small particles that can be inhaled into the lungs and irritate the membranes that line th...
