TiO2 nanomaterials have been widely used for anticancer drug carriers and UV/980 nm NIR triggered cancer synergistic platforms. However, traditional pure TiO2 nanocarriers encounter some serious drawbacks, such as low drug loading ability, limited tissue penetration of UV light, and heating effect of 980 nm NIR on normal tissue, which obstruct their further application in cancer treatment. To overcome those challenges, novel mesoporous silica (mSiO2) coated black TiO2 core-shell nanocomposites are designed and constructed as doxorubicin carriers for 808 nm NIR triggered thermal imaging guided photothermal therapy combined chemotherapy of breast cancer...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an auspicious strategy for cancer therapy by yielding reactive oxygen species (ROS) under light irradiation. Here, we have developed near-infrared (NIR) triggered polymer encapsulated upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) based on aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics and mitochondria target ability for PDT. The coated AIE polymer as a photosensitizer can be photoactivated by the up-converted energy of UCNPs upon 980 nm laser irradiation, which could generate ROS efficiently in mitochondria and induce cell apoptosis...

Over the past few years, there have been several attempts to deliver anticancer drugs into the body. It has been shown that compared to other available carriers, colloidal gelatin nanoparticles (CGNPs) have distinct properties due to their exceptional physico-chemical and biological characteristics. In this study, a novel water-soluble palladium (II) anticancer complex was first synthesised, and then loaded into CGNPs. The CGNPs were synthesised through a two-step desolvation method with an average particle size of 378 nm...

Anion exchanger 2 (AE2, encoded by SLC4A2) is a sodium-independent chloride/bicarbonate transporter and implicated in the regulation of intracellular pH and membrane potential. Previous studies have linked AE2 to the tumorigenesis of various cancers. Here, AE2 was identified as an up-regulated protein in ovarian cancer tissues compared to adjacent non-tumor lesions based on quantitative proteomics analysis. AE2 mRNA was also overexpressed in human ovarian cancer samples, and that AE2 overexpression correlated with the shortened survival time of ovarian cancer patients...

Even though cancer treatment has improved over the recent decades, still more specific and effective treatment concepts are mandatory. Surgical removal is not always possible, metastases are challenging and chemo- and radiotherapy can not only have severe side-effects but also resistances may occur. To cope with these challenges more efficient therapies with fewer side-effects are required. One promising approach is the use of drug delivery vehicles. Here, mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSN) are discussed as biodegradable drug carrier to improve efficacy and reduce side-effects...

Co-delivery strategy has been proposed to minimize the amount of each drug and to achieve the synergistic effect for cancer therapies. A conjugate of the antitumor drug, doxorubicin, with diblock methoxy poly (ethylene glycol)-poly caprolactone (mPEG-PCL) copolymer was synthesized by the reaction of mPEG-PCL copolymer with doxorubicin in the presence of p-nitrophenylchloroformate. The conjugated copolymer was characterized in vitro by (1)H NMR, FTIR, DSC and GPC techniques. Then, the doxorubicin conjugated mPEG-PCL(DOX-mPEG-PCL) was self-assembled into micelles in the presence of curcumin in aqueous solution...

With singlet oxygen ((1)O2) as the active agent, photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising technique for the treatment of various tumors and cancers. But it is hampered by the poor selectivity of most traditional photosensitizers (PS). In this review, we present a summary of controllable PDT implemented by regulating singlet oxygen efficiency. Herein, various controllable PDT strategies based on different initiating conditions (such as pH, light, H2O2 and so on) have been summarized and introduced. More importantly, the action mechanisms of controllable PDT strategies, such as photoinduced electron transfer (PET), fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) and some physical/chemical means (e...

Due to multidrug resistance of cancer tissues and immune-suppression of cancerous patients during chemotherapy in one hand and the use of tetrazole derivatives in medicine because of its anticancer, antifungal and antiviral properties, on the other, we were encouraged to design novel smart antibacterial nanocomposites-based polymer of tetrazole as dual anticancer drug delivery systems. The structures of nanocomposites characterized by FTIR, (1)H NMR, FESEM-EDX and TGA analyses and antibacterial activity of smart carriers were evaluated by determination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values against some bacteria and fungi...

As tumor microenvironment becoming more and more important in tumor study, the acid pH around or in solid tumors drew lots of attentions. And the progress of drug delivery systems made the responsive-release possible. This time, we fabricated a new-type composite electrospun poly (L-lactide) (PLLA) fibrous scaffolds, that blent with the mesoporous silica particles (MSNs). Further more, we used sodium bicarbonate (SB) as acid sensitive agent which was wrapped inside the MSNs. And doxorubicin (DOX) was also wrapped into MSNs in order to achieve a sustained release to inhibit tumors in mice, which mimicked the remnant breast cancer with surgery...

Breast cancer is the most vicious killer for women, and tumor metastasis is one of the leading causes of breast cancer therapy failure. In this study, a new pH-sensitive polymer (polyethylene glycol-block-poly[(1,4-butanediol)-diacrylate-β-N,N-diisopropylethylenediamine], BDP) was synthesized. Based on BDP, docetaxel/silibinin co-delivery micelles (DSMs) was constructed. DSM had a well-defined spherical shape under the transmission electron microscope with average hydrodynamic diameter of 85.3±0.4 nm, and were stable in the bloodstream but could dissociate to release the chemotherapeutic agents in the low pH environment of the endo/lysosomes in the tumor cells...

Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) is a clinically used polysaccharide colloidal plasma volume expander. The goal of this study was to synthesize HES modified with hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a novel polymeric drug with the ability to inhibit the invasive character of pancreatic cancer (PC) cells. HES was conjugated with HCQ using a simple carbonyldiimidazole coupling to prepare Chloroquine-modified HES (CQ-HES). CQ-HES with various degrees of HCQ substitution were synthesized and characterized. Atomic force microscopy was used to demonstrate a pH-dependent assembly of CQ-HES into well-defined nanoparticles...

pH-responsive virus-like nanoparticles (VLNPs) hold promising potential as drug delivery systems for cancer therapy. In the present study, hepatitis B virus (HBV) VLNPs harbouring His-tags were used to display doxorubicin (DOX) via nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) conjugation. The His-tags served as pH-responsive nanojoints which released DOX from VLNPs in a controlled manner. The His-tagged VLNPs conjugated non-covalently with NTA-DOX, and cross-linked with folic acid (FA) were able to specifically target and deliver the DOX into ovarian cancer cells via folate receptor (FR)-mediated endocytosis...

Neoplastic cells live in a stressful context and survive thanks to their ability to overcome stress. Thus, tumor cell responses to stress are potential therapeutic targets. We selected two such responses in melanoma and sarcoma cells: the xc- antioxidant system, that opposes oxidative stress, and surface v-ATPases that counteract the low pHi by extruding protons, and targeted them with the xc- blocker sulfasalazine and the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole. Sulfasalazine inhibited the cystine/cysteine redox cycle and esomeprazole decreased pHi while increasing pHe in tumor cell lines...
