Multidrug resistance is the most widely exploited phenomenon by which cancer eludes chemotherapy. Broad variety of factors, ranging from the cellular ones, such as over-expression of efflux transporters, defective apoptotic machineries, and altered molecular targets, to the physiological factors such as higher interstitial fluid pressure, low extracellular(More)
This work aimed to develop solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) co-loaded with doxorubicin and α-tocopherol succinate (TS) and to evaluate its potential to overcome drug resistance and to increase antitumoral effect in MCF-7/Adr and NCI/Adr cancer cell lines. The SLN were prepared by a hot homogenization method and characterized for size, zeta potential,(More)
To develop a multifunctional nanoparticle system carrying a combination of pro-apoptotic drug, NCL-240, TRAIL [tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand] and anti-survivin siRNA and to test the combination preparation for anti-cancer effects in different cancer cells. Polyethylene glycol-phosphoethanolamine (PEG-PE) – based polymeric(More)

To develop transferrin (Tf)-targeted delivery systems for the pro-apoptotic drug, NCL-240, and to evaluate the efficacy of this delivery system in ovarian cancer NCI/ADR-RES cells, grown in vitro in a 3D spheroid model. Tf-targeted PEG-PE-based micellar and ePC/CHOL-based liposomal delivery systems for NCL-240 were prepared. NCI/ADR-RES cells were used to(More)
Cancer cells increase their metabolism to produce the energy and biomolecules necessary for growth and proliferation. Thus, energy metabolism pathways may serve as targets for anti-cancer therapy. NCL-240 is a second generation anti-cancer drug belonging to the PITenins class of PI3K-Akt inhibitors. Our analysis suggested that NCL-240 caused disruptions in(More)
