Mesoporous Carbon Nanospheres as a Multifunctional Carrier for Cancer Theranostics
Conclusions: We have developed Meso-CNs for photothermal conversion and photoacoustic imaging. The porous structure also serves as a drug carrier and the drug release can be controlled by pH and external light. The high drug loading capacity, superior photothermal and photoacoustic generation, together with the apparent chemo-photothermal therapeutic effect, make Meso-CNs a promising platform for cancer theranostics.

Endogenous IgG-based affinity-controlled release of TRAIL exerts superior antitumor effects
Conclusions: Endogenous long-acting proteins, particularly IgG-based affinity-controlled release, prolonged the serum half-life as well as significantly enhanced the antitumor effect of TRAIL. IgBD-mediated endogenous IgG binding might be a novel approach for the affinity-controlled release of other protein drugs.

The enhanced antitumor-specific immune response with mannose- and CpG-ODN-coated liposomes delivering TRP2 peptide
Conclusions: The results suggested that the antitumor activities of the vaccine partially rely on the Myd88 signaling pathway. Interestingly, compared to whole tumor cell lysate-based vaccine, M/CpG-ODN-TRP2-Lipo, tumor specific antigen peptide-based vaccine, improved survival of tumor-bearing mice as well as enhanced their antitumor responses. All in all, we describe a novel vaccine formulation, M/CpG-ODN-TRP2-Lipo, with the aim of improving antitumor responses by alleviating the immunosuppressive environment in tumors.

Surface impact on nanoparticle-based magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the most widely used diagnostic tools in the clinic. To improve imaging quality, MRI contrast agents, which can modulate local T1 and T2 relaxation times, are often injected prior to or during MRI scans. However, clinically used contrast agents, including Gd3+-based chelates and iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs), afford mediocre contrast abilities. To address this issue, there has been extensive research on developing alternative MRI contrast agents with superior r1 and r2 relaxivities. These efforts are facilitated by the fast progress in nanotechnology, which allows for preparati...

Lipstick obsession and red urine
A 28-year-old woman presented to the nephrology clinic with a 5-day history of passage of red-colored urine (Figure  1a) without dysuria flank pain, rigors, or chills. She denied any history of recent exposure to medications, beet intake, or coloring agents in food. On examination, the only noticeable feature was her bright-red lipstick (Figure 1b). Her blood count, serum creatinine, liver function, and urine t ests were normal. Her urine culture was sterile. On further questioning, she revealed that she would apply her lipstick 20 to 25 times a day and was finding it hard to overcome this obsession.

Unhanding Her, Unhanding Him: Explosive Issues beyond Anesthetic Advertising
In Portland, Oregon in 1880, dentist Hiram M. Russ shared an office reception area with his wife, the town photographer. When he mistakenly plopped a well-dressed woman into his dental chair, she demanded that he unhand her, as she was there to be photographed by Mrs. Russ. Hapless Dr. Russ was ridiculed for this episode in the local press. As his dental practice expanded, he preferred to avoid the nausea and flammability associated with ether anesthetics. Indeed, by the 1890s, Dr. Russ had begun advertising his anesthetic use of “Vitalized Air, Electricity and Coca[i]ne” (above). In 1907, a second news story portrayed...
