This study aims to (1) verify the cardioprotective effect of ω-3 fish oil fat emulsion in vivo and in vitro, and (2) determine whether aldehyde stress is a protective mechanism. For modeling purposes, we pretreated rats with 2 ml/kg of a 10% ω-3 fish oil fat emulsion for 5 days in order to generate a sufficient aldehyde stress response to trigger the production of antioxidant enzymes, and we obtained similar response with H9C2 cells that were pretreated with a 0.5% ω-3 fish oil fat emulsion for 24 h. ω-3 fish oil fat emulsion pretreatment in vivo reduced the myocardial infarct size, decreased th...

Publication date: Available online 20 July 2019Source: Seminars in Cancer BiologyAuthor(s): Nancy A. Espinoza-Sánchez, Martin GötteAbstractOver the past few decades, understanding how tumor cells evade the immune system and their communication with their tumor microenvironment, has been the subject of intense investigation, with the aim of developing new cancer immunotherapies. The current therapies against cancer such as monoclonal antibodies against checkpoint inhibitors, adoptive T-cell transfer, cytokines, vaccines, and oncolytic viruses have managed to improve the clinical outcome of the patients. However,...

Silymarin is extracted from the seeds and fruits of milk thistle plant Silybum marianum which consists of main biologically active component as silibinin. However, the clinical applications of silibinin show some limitations due to low aqueous solubility, poor penetration into the ...

Hedrick, Yi Yan YangAbstractProlonged vaccine release enables gradual immunostimulation, providing long-term immunity. Herein, Vitamin E- PEG-Vitamin E triblock ‘ABA’ hydrogel, which is formed through physical cross-linking of flower-shaped micelles and can reside in vivo for>17 weeks, was employed for delivery of cancer preventive vaccines to provide sustained anticancer immunity. Mice vaccinated with hydrogel formulations produced a sign...

Mehrgardi, Philippe BouvetAbstractG-rich oligonucleotide, AS1411, has been shown to interact with nucleolin and to inhibit cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth. This antiproliferative action is increased when AS1411 is conjugated to different types of nanoparticles. However, the molecular mechanisms are not known. In this work, we show in several cell lines that optimiz...
