The development of stimuli-responsive nanocarriers is becoming important in chemotherapy. Liposomes, with an appropriate triggering mechanism, can efficiently deliver their encapsulated cargo in a controlled manner. We explored the use of acid-sensitive zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZNPs) as modulators of the responsive properties of liposomes. Nanocomplexes(More)
Celecoxib with low solubility and high permeability (BCS class II) in water is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in the treatment of pain and inflammation, associated with rheumatoid arthritis, and several other inflammatory disorders. Also, it is a selective cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitor with low water solubility and high crystallinity. The(More)
ZnO platforms were evaluated for designing a high-performance anticancer drug (daunorubicin) carrier. Hollow structured ZnO, compared with nanorods, acts as a multi-purpose entity by serving as smart carriers and exhibiting synergetic photodynamic cytotoxic effects, which are ascribed to their high-specific surface area, hollow interior, pH-responsiveness(More)
Although diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) are different disease entities, they share similar neuropathic symptoms that impede quality of life for these patients. Despite having very similar downstream effects, there have been no direct comparisons between DPN and CIPN with respect to symptom severity(More)
