Emulsion electrospinning was used in the present study to prepare core-sheath structured fibers with core-loading of hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT), and their antitumor activities were evaluated both in vitro on cancer cell lines and in vivo on tumor bearing mice via intratumoral implantation. Compared with our previous investigation on blend electrospun(More)
Deep or chronic skin wounds are difficult to heal spontaneously due to the lack of scaffold to guide cell growth and reduced levels and activities of endogenous growth factors. Emulsion electrospinning process integrated with DNA condensation techniques indicated potentials to gradually release DNA, but no attempt has been made to clarify the advantages in(More)
It is one of the challenges for a wide clinical application of polymer micelles to address the structure disintegration and premature drug release before reaching a pathological site. In the current study, folic acid (FA)-decorated polymer-drug conjugates (FSC) were synthesized with disulfide linkages between camptothecin (CPT) and amphiphilic poly(ethylene(More)
Acid-labile nanoparticles are proposed to enhance the tumor targeting and anti-tumor therapy of hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) in response to the acidic microenvironment within cells and tumor tissues. HCPT was entrapped into matrix polymers containing acid-labile segments and galactose moieties (PGBELA) through an electrospraying technique. The antitumor(More)
Porous surfaces have an important effect on bioactivity of titanium implants. In this study, two micro/nanostructural titanium surfaces were prepared by chemical and electrochemical method. The two samples had different diameters of nanotubes. Tests of biomineralization and codeposition in simulated body fluid and bovine serum albumin (BSA) were carried out(More)
