Bioactivity of chlorogenic acid/SiO2/PEG composite synthesized via sol-gel

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2020Source: Materials Today: ProceedingsAuthor(s): Michelina Catauro, Federico Barrino, Ignazio Blanco, Giovanni Dal Poggetto, Simona Piccolella, Giuseppina Crescente, Severina PacificoAbstractSol-gel chemistry is an attractive approach in the design of new antioxidant biomaterials. Its versatility was exploited to obtain organic-inorganic hybrid materials in which a natural antioxidant compound, namely chlorogenic acid (CGA), was entrapped, in different percentage, in matrices variously constituted in silica and PEG400.The synthetized hybrids were chemically characterized by means of FTIR and UV–Vis spectroscopy and UHPLC-HRMS techniques. The hydroxyapatite nucleation on the surfaces of all samples was detected by FT-IR analysis and confirmed by XRD analysis.The scavenging capacity towards DPPH and ABTS+ radicals appeared strongly dependent on the CGA/PEG ratio, suggesting that CGA structural features, commonly recognized to be responsible for its antioxidant capacity, may be masked or evidenced by chemical interactions in the established network.Furthermore, in vitro cytotoxicity tests by MTT highlighted a certain selectivity against tumour cells. In fact, no cytotoxic effects were observed on NIH-3T3 fibroblast cell line up to the highest exposure dose; as a matter of fact, a marked cell viability increase was observed when hybrids with low PEG amount (6%) and high CGA (15%) were directly exposed to fibroblasts. On the c...

We identified 20 survival ‐related long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) that might be associated with the spontaneous regression of neuroblastoma (NB) and developed a four‐lncRNA signature risk score. The four‐lncRNA signature is an independent prognostic factor of survival in NB. AbstractBackgroundThe association between long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) and spontaneous regression of neuroblastoma (NB) has rarely been investigated and remains unknown.ObjectiveTo identify prognostic lncRNAs involved in the spontaneous regression of NB.MethodsDifferential expression analyses were performed between those samples with an outcome o...

In this study, 4‐F4t‐NeuroP was introduced into neuroblastoma cells (SH‐SY5Y) and, byin vivo infusion, into rodents. Targeted lipidomic analysis of liver and brain tissues show significant elevation of anti ‐inflammatory hydroxylated‐DHA metabolites and an isomer of neuroprotectin D1, suggesting potential beneficial bioactivities of 4‐F4t‐NeuroP. Additionally, 4‐F4t‐NeuroP treatment in SH‐SY5Y cells and primary neuronal culture consistently upregulates the transcriptional level of the antioxidant enzyme hemeoxygenase‐1, but the effect is reduced when 4‐F4t‐NeuroP is further oxidized. Our data sugg...

AbstractObjectiveThe aim of the study was to investigate the outcomes and prognostic factors of high-dose131I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (131I-MIBG) therapy in patients with refractory or relapsed neuroblastoma (NBL) in Japan.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed 20 patients with refractory or relapsed high-risk NBL who underwent131I-MIBG therapy with an administration dose ranging from 444 to 666  MBq/kg at Kanazawa University Hospital, Japan, between September 2008 and September 2013. We focused on measurements regarding their initial responses, prognostic factors, survivals, and toxicities following131I-MIBG therapy usin...

Abstract Enterovirus A71 (EV71) remains the most common causative agent of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD), and the neurological complications induced by EV71 are usually the leading cause of death in children with HFMD. However, the mechanism of nervous system changes caused by EV71 infection is still unclear. Therefore, in the current study, EV71 was inoculated into the human neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y and subsequent transcriptome sequencing was used to examine the alterations of the transcriptome in infected SH-SY5Y cells. It is expected to determine the underlying mechanism of neurological diseases i...
