Miller selected as division director of neuropathology at University of Alabama

C. Ryan Miller, MD, PhDThe University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Pathology has recently named C. Ryan Miller, MD, PhD as director of the neuropathology division. He starts in that position on April 1.Miller was most recently a professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Miller also served as faculty director of the UNC Translational Pathology Laboratory in conjunction with the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center“We are excited to have Dr. Miller back at UAB in the Department of Pathology, where his experience in research on tumors of the brain and work with proteomics will enhance the Neuropathology Division’s portfolio for future growth in this important area,” said department chair George Netto, MD .In 1999, prior to medical school, Miller completed a Ph.D. in the department ’s Cellular and Molecular Pathology Graduate Program. He earned his medical degree from the UAB School of Medicine in 2002 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the UAB Brain Treatment and Research Program. Miller then moved to Washington University School of Medicine, where he completed a re sidency in anatomic pathology in 2004 and a fellowship in neuropathology in 2006.

Synergistic combination of chemo‑phototherapy based on temozolomide/ICG‑loaded iron oxide nanoparticles for brain cancer treatment. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 21;: Authors: Kwon YM, Je JY, Cha SH, Oh Y, Cho WH Abstract Chemo‑photothermal therapy for cancer treatment has received increasing attention due to its selective therapeutic effects. In the present study, the anticancer effects of drug‑loaded Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) by chemo‑photothermal therapy on U‑87 MG human glioblastoma cells was investigated. Anticancer drug‑loaded Fe3O4 MNPs were prepared by loading temozolomide (TMZ) a...

Abstract This chapter is a brief overview of use of nanobiotechnology in drug delivery. Several types of nanoparticles are available. Nanoparticulate formulations of normally used drugs have increased efficacy due to improved absorption and require lower dosage with less side effects than standard formulations. Nanobiotechnology also facilitates targeted drug delivery of anticancer drugs, which is important for the management of cancer. Nanoparticles also facilitate crossing of biological barriers in the human body for drug delivery to targeted organs, for example, crossing the blood-brain barrier to reach the bra...

Abstract This is an overview of the current drug delivery systems (DDSs) starting with various routes of drug administration. Various drug formulations are then described as well as devices used for drug delivery and targeted drug delivery. There has been a considerable increase in the number of new biotechnology-based therapeutics. Most of these are proteins and peptides, and their delivery present special challenges. Cell and gene therapies are sophisticated methods of delivery of therapeutics. Nanoparticles are important for refining drug delivery. In addition to being vehicles for drug delivery, nanoparticles ...

k Martina Zíková Brain and nervous system cancers in children represent the second most common neoplasia after leukemia. Radiotherapy plays a significant role in cancer treatment; however, the use of such therapy is not without devastating side effects. The impact of radiation-induced damage to the brain is multifactorial, but the damage to neural stem cell populations seems to play a key role. The brain contains pools of regenerative neural stem cells that reside in specialized neurogenic niches and can generate new neurons. In this review, we describe the advances in radiotherapy techniques that prot...

Neginskaya, Anatoly B. UzdenskyAbstractPhotodynamic therapy (PDT) is used for killing of malignant cells in tumors including brain cancer. It can also damage normal neurons and glial cells. Nitric oxide (NO) is known to control PDT-induced cell death. To study the mechanisms that regulate NO generation in photosensitized neurons and glial cells, we used a simple model object - isolated crayfish mechanoreceptor that consists of a single ...

miR‑378a‑3p inhibits cellular proliferation and migration in glioblastoma multiforme by targeting tetraspanin 17. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 20;: Authors: Guo XB, Zhang XC, Chen P, Ma LM, Shen ZQ Abstract Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive brain tumor and patients with this disease tend to have poor clinical outcome. MicroRNAs (miRs) are important regulators of a number of key pathways implicated in tumor pathogenesis. Recently, the expression of miR‑378 was shown to be dysregulated in several different types of cancer, including gastric cancer, colorectal cancer and oral ca...
