The present study aimed to analyze the characteristics of polyethylene glycol (PEG)ylated carboplatin liposomes (PL-CBPs), including size, stability, their release, entrapping and loading efficiencies, and their antitumor and antimeta-static effects on the lymph nodes. The PL-CBPs were prepared using PEG-2000 with the thin film hydration method. The(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic cancer treatment is limited and effective drugs are needed. We investigated cucurmosin (CUS)-induced apoptosis in cystic fibrosis pancreatic adenocarcinoma cells (CFPAC-1) and a possible mechanism of action to evaluate the clinical application potential of this new Type I ribosome-inactivating protein. METHODS We analyzed the growth(More)
BACKGROUND Acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) is often complicated by multiple organ failure. The small intestine is frequently damaged during ANP. Capillary leakage in multiple organs during ANP is one of the most important causes of multiple organ dysfunction. Damage to the capillary endothelial barrier and impaired water transportation could lead to(More)
BACKGROUND Ulinastatin or urinary trypsin inhibitor (UTI) has been shown to ameliorate the inflammatory response induced by experimental severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) and hence reduce the mortality, however the mechanism of its action remains incompletely understood. We have investigated the effect of ulinastatin on regulatory T-cells (Tregs) in an(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most malignant tumors and is difficult to diagnose in the early phase. This study was aimed at obtaining the metabolic profiles and characteristic metabolites of pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN) and PDAC tissues from Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats to establish metabonomic methods used in the early(More)
Metabonomics has been applied in many bio-related scientific fields. Nevertheless, some animal research works are shown to fail when they are extended to humans. Therefore, it is essential to figure out suitable animal modeling to mimic human metabolism so that animal findings can serve humans. In this study, two kinds of commonly selected body fluids,(More)
