Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2021 Sep 13;2021:2280440. doi: 10.1155/2021/2280440. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTColorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignant tumors with high morbidity and mortality. The early symptoms are latent, and most patients are in the middle or late stage when they are diagnosed. The best opportunity for surgery has been lost, and surgical resection has failed to achieve good results. In clinical practice, targeted therapy or chemotherapy is usually the main treatment. The mFOLFOX6 regimen is a standardized regimen for the treatment of advanced CRC. The main drugs in this regimen ar...

Nasal delivery has been indicated as one of the most interesting alternative routes for the brain delivery of neuroprotective drugs. Nanocarriers have emerged as a promising strategy for the delivery of neurotherapeutics across the nasal epithelia. In this work, hybrid lecithin/chitosan nanoparticles (LCNs) were proposed as a drug delivery platform for the nasal administration of simvastatin (SVT) for the treatment of neuroinflammatory diseases. The impact of SVT nanoencapsulation on its transport across the nasal epithelium was investigated, as well as the efficacy of SVT-LCNs in suppressing cytokines release in a cellula...

Acta Pharmacol Sin. 2021 Sep 22. doi: 10.1038/s41401-021-00769-3. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDespite improvements in cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes by cholesterol-lowering statin therapy, the high rate of CVD is still a great concern worldwide. Dehydrocorydaline (DHC) is an alkaloidal compound isolated from the traditional Chinese herb Corydalis yanhusuo. Emerging evidence shows that DHC has anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic benefits, but whether DHC exerts any antiatherosclerotic effects remains unclear. Our study revealed that intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of DHC in apolipoprotein E-deficient (ApoE-/-) mi...
