NanOlogy looks to transform chemotherapy with localized delivery platform
Paclitaxel revolutionized cancer treatment when it was first used as a chemotherapeutic in the 1990s. But although the product is a powerful cancer killer, patients taking systemic doses of paclitaxel have to endure side effects such as peripheral neuropathy and hair loss. Marc Iacobucci and his team at NanOlogy believe they could replace the need for large, systemic doses of paclitaxel with the company’s unique formulation technique. NanOlogy has developed a way to turn drugs such as paclitaxel and docetaxel into sub-micron particles of pure drug that can be delivered locally to tumors. Get the full story ...

How Does Pediatric Sj ö gren Syndrome Present?
Discussion Sjögren Syndrome (SS) is named for Swedish ophthalmologist Henrik Sjögren who published a case series in 1933 describing patients with dry eyes and arthritis. SS is a “chronic autoimmune inflammatory exocrinopathy” that is characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the lacrimal and salivary glands and has various degrees of systematic involvement. Keratoconjunctivitis sicca and xerostomia are the main clinical symptoms. Sicca is a Latin word meaning dry. Dryness of the eyes and mouth without evidence of autoimmune disease is called Sicca syndrome or Sicca complex. SS can be primary or se...
