Chronic liver diseases have recently garnered substantial attention as a leading cause of death around the world. During the progression of liver fibrosis/cirrhosis induced by chronic liver injury, hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) play key roles in the regulation of liver fibrogenesis and can even accelerate the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Thus, inhibition of HSC activation or suppression of inflammatory cytokine secretion by HSCs may be an efficient therapeutic strategy to ameliorate liver fibrosis/cirrhosis...

Rationale: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been implicated as the seeds of therapeutic resistance and metastasis, due to their unique abilities of self-renew, wide differentiation potentials and resistance to most conventional therapies. It is a proactive strategy for cancer therapy to eradicate CSCs. Methods: Tumor tissue-derived breast CSCs (BCSC), including XM322 and XM607, were isolated by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS); while cell line-derived BCSC, including MDA-MB-231.SC and MCF-7.SC, were purified by magnetic-activated cell sorting (MACS)...

Resistance to regular treatment strategies is a big challenge in the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer. Combination of photothermal and photodynamic therapy (PTT/PDT) with chemotherapy offers unique advantages over monotherapy alone. However, free drugs, such as photosensitizers and chemotherapeutic agents, lack tumor-targeted accumulation and can be easily eliminated from the body. Moreover, most of the PTT drugs are hydrophobic and their organic solvents have in vivo toxicity, thereby limiting their potential in clinical translation...

This research was motivated due to substantial requirement of improved treatment for breast cancer which accounts for over 0.52 million deaths annually worldwide. Utilizing nanoparticles carrying active medicaments as targeted delivery carrier is emerging as a promising approach. For a drug to be clinically effective, it needs to be suitably protected in the biological fluid till it is delivered to the targeted site. Keeping above in mind, we prepared and optimized polymeric nanoparticles by polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV) a biodegradable polymer utilizing modified emulsification solvent evaporation method...

Remotely controlled, localized drug delivery is highly desirable for potentially minimizing the systemic toxicity induced by the administration of typically hydrophobic chemotherapy drugs by conventional means. Nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems provide a highly promising approach for localized drug delivery, and are an emerging field of interest in cancer treatment. Here, we demonstrate near-IR light-triggered release of two drug molecules from both DNA-based and protein-based hosts that have been conjugated to near-infrared-absorbing Au nanoshells (SiO2 core, Au shell), each forming a light-responsive drug delivery complex...

Effective treatment of metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) remains an unmet challenge. Cabazitaxel (CBZ) is approved for mCRPC after docetaxel (DTX) failure, but the improvement in survival is only moderate (∼2 months) and patients suffer from significant side effects. Here, we report the development of a polymer based delivery system for CBZ to improve its safety and efficacy against DTX-resistant mCRPC. CBZ was conjugated to a carboxymethylcellulose-based polymer (Cellax-CBZ), which self-assembled into ∼100 nm particles in saline and exhibited sustained drug release in serum at 10%/day...

Breast cancer leads to high mortality of women in the world. Docetaxel (DTX) has been widely applied as one of the first-line chemotherapeutic drugs for breast cancer therapy. However, the clinical outcome of DTX is far from satisfaction due to its poor drug delivery efficiency. Herein, a novel disulfide bond bridged oleate prodrug of DTX was designed and synthesized to construct self-delivering prodrug-based nanosystem for improved anticancer efficacy of DTX. The uniquely engineered prodrug-nanoassemblies showed redox-responsive drug release, increased cellular uptake and comparable cytotoxicity against 4T1 breast cancer cells when compared with free DTX...

Background: Brain tumors are the most common tumors among adolescents. Although some chemotherapeutics are known to be effective against brain tumors based on cell culture studies, the same effect is not observed in clinical trials. For this reason, the development of drug delivery systems is important to treat brain tumors and prevent tumor recurrence. The aim of this study was to develop core-shell polymeric nanoparticles with positive charge by employing a chitosan coating. Additionally, an implantable formulation for the chemotherapeutic nanoparticles was developed as a bioadhesive film to be applied at the tumor site following surgical operation for brain glioma treatment...
