This paradoxical effect of chemotherapy can affect different districts such as the primary tumor, the circulation and distant organs by s...

In this study; spectroscopic, electronic and biological properties of Boc-D-Lys-OH (BDLO) molecule have been examined using quantum chemical calculations. First of all, the molecule was optimized and geometric structure parameters and vibrational wavenumbers were calculated by DFT/ B3LYP methods 6-311G++(d,p) basis set. The calculated wavenumbers were then compared with the experimental values of the FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra. Finally, the molecular docking was determined for anti apoptotic proteins with BDLO molecule. The results showed Boc-D-Lys-OH molecule had more binding affinity with AKT1 and concluded this molecule...

In this study, we developed a nucleus-targeting nanoparticle system for combining PTT/PDT and chemotherapy to treat breast cancer. IR780, a near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence dye that has potent anticancer efficacy of PTT and PDT, was firstly conjugated with TAT peptide through substitution reaction between chlorine atom and sulfhydryl group, thus obtained a conjugate TAT-IR780 with notably enhanced water solubility and optical stability. Next, chemotherapeutic drug doxorubicin (DOX) and TAT-IR780 self-assembled in aqueous medium to form TID nanoparticles with a small size of approximately 100 nm. Both in vitro and in vivo...

Abstract Pancreatic cancer is a dismal disease with a poor prognosis and is one of the most painful malignancies. Therefore, adequate pain control is essential to improving the patient's quality of life. Pain in pancreatic cancer has complex pathophysiologic mechanisms and different characteristics. The choice of pain management modalities should be individualized depending on the pain characteristics using a multidisciplinary approach. The treatment options available include medical treatment, chemotherapy, celiac plexus/ganglion neurolysis, radiotherapy, and endoscopic technique. This review discusses the medica...

Abstract Pancreatic cancer is a major cause of cancer-related mortality and morbidity, and its incidence is increasing as the population is aging. On the other hand, significant improvement in the prognosis has not occurred. The absence of early diagnosis means that many patients are diagnosed only when they develop symptoms, such as jaundice, due to a biliary obstruction. The role of endoscopy in multidisciplinary care for patients with pancreatic cancer continues to evolve. Controversy remains regarding the best preoperative biliary drainage in patients with surgically resectable pancreatic head cancer. In gener...

However, its relationship with prognosis in colon cancer and colon cancer hepatic metastasis has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between RBBP4 expression and prognosis of colon cancer patients and to evaluate RBBP4 as a new prognostic marker in these patients.MethodsEighty colon cancer patients...

Tumor immunotherapy involves the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors and CAR (chimeric antigen receptor)-T cell therapy. As compared with conventional chemotherapy, immunotherapy is a potential approach to induce a more powerful immune response against tu...

Dehydrogenase/reductase SDR family member 2 silencing sensitizes an oxaliplatin‑resistant cell line to oxaliplatin by inhibiting excision repair cross‑complementing group 1 protein expression. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 22;: Authors: Li JM, Jiang GM, Zhao L, Yang F, Yuan WQ, Wang H, Luo YQ Abstract Oxaliplatin (Oxa)‑based chemotherapy is widely used as the first‑line treatment for colorectal cancer (CRC). However, Oxa‑resistance is common for many postoperative CRC patients. To explore drug resistance in CRC, an Oxa‑resistant cell line, HCT116/Oxa, was established from parental HCT116 cells. ...
