Improving cytocompatibility of CdTe quantum dots by Schiff-base-coordinated lanthanides surface doping
(BioMed Central, 2018-04-19)
Background: Suitable fluorophores are the core of fluorescence imaging. Among the most exciting, yet controversial, labels are quantum dots (QDs) with their unique optical and chemical properties, but also considerable ...
Novel Vancomycin-Peptide Conjugate as Potent Antibacterial Agent against Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
(Dove Press, 2018-11-01)
Background: Increase in vancomycin (Van)-resistant bacterial strains including vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) and lack of new effective antibiotics have become a formidable health problem. Materials and ...
Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen-Targeted Site-Directed Antibody-Conjugated Apoferritin Nanovehicle Favorably Influences In Vivo Side Effects of Doxorubicin
(Springer Nature, 2018-06-11)
Herein, we describe the in vivo effects of doxorubicin (DOX) encapsulated in ubiquitous protein apoferritin (APO) and its efficiency and safety in anti-tumor treatment. APODOX is both passively (through Enhanced Permeability ...
Comparative gene expression profiling of human metallothionein-3 up-regulation in neuroblastoma cells and its impact on susceptibility to cisplatin
(Impact Journals, 2018-01-12)
Human metallothionein-3 (hMT-3), also known as growth inhibitory factor, is predominantly expressed in the central nervous system. hMT-3 is presumed to participate in the processes of heavy metal detoxification, regulation ...
Differences in Urinary Amino Acid Patterns in Individuals with Different Types of Urological Tumor Urinary Amino Acid Patterns as Markers of Urological Tumors
(The International Institute of Anticancer Research, 2018-04-01)
Background: Insufficient specificity and invasiveness of currently used diagnostic methods raises the need for new markers of urological tumors. The aim of this study was to find a link between the urinary excretion of ...
Identification of Sarcosine as a Target Molecule for the Canine Olfactory Detection of Prostate Carcinoma
(Springer Nature, 2018-12-01)
The hypothesis that dogs can detect malignant tumours through the identification of specific molecules is nearly 30 years old. To date, several reports have described the successful detection of distinct types of cancer. ...
