Malignant gliomas manifest frequent tumor recurrence after surgical resection and/or other treatment because of their nature of invasiveness and dissemination. The recognized brain tumor-tracking property of neural progenitor/stem cells opened the possibility of targeting malignant brain tumors using neural progenitor/stem cells. We and others have(More)
A novel group of alpha-lipoic acid-containing hydrophobic prodrugs of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) was synthesized and transformed into nanometer-sized prodrugs (nanoprodrugs). Three NSAIDs, indomethacin, ibuprofen and naproxen were linked to alpha-lipoic acid via tetraethylene glycol through hydrolytically degradable ester bonds. The(More)

PARTICIPANTS Moderate-severe TBI patients ages ≥ 18years old admitted between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2012. MAIN MEASURES Response to inpatient rehabilitation,(More)
The purpose of this study was to prepare and characterize antioxidant nanospheres composed of multiple alpha-lipoic acid-containing compounds (mALAs). It was found that the nanospheres were remarkably stable under physiologic conditions, maintained the antioxidant property of alpha-lipoic acid, and could be destabilized oxidatively and enzymatically.
