OBJECTIVE Docetaxel (DTX) remains the only effective drug for prolonging survival and improving quality of life of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients. Combination anticancer therapy encapsulating DTX and another extract of traditional Chinese medicine is one nano-sized drug delivery system promising to generate synergistic(More)
PURPOSE Combination therapy is increasingly used as a primary cancer treatment regimen. In this report, we designed EGFR peptide decorated nanoparticles (NPs) to co-deliver docetaxel (DTX) and pH sensitive curcumin (CUR) prodrug for the treatment of prostate cancer. RESULTS EGFR peptide (GE11) targeted, pH sensitive, DTX and CUR prodrug NPs (GE11-DTX-CUR(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the outcomes of percutaneous intervention (PI) for transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Doppler ultrasonography was used as the screening tool, and angiography was the diagnostic method for TRAS. The indications for PI were (1) a reduction in lumen diameter of >50% or (2) a mean pressure gradient of >15 mm Hg.(More)
For targeted gastric carcinoma therapy, hyaluronic acid (HA)-modified layer-by-layer nanoparticles (NPs) are applied for improving anticancer treatment efficacy and reducing toxicity and side effects. The aim of this study was to develop HA-modified NPs for the co-loading of irinotecan (IRN) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). A novel polymer-chitosan (CH)-HA hybrid(More)
OBJECTIVES Transplant renal artery stenosis is a frequently recognized complication of kidney transplant procedures. A single-center retrospective study was conducted to examine the use of 3-dimensional computed tomography reconstruction in diagnosing transplant artery stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS During 2013 at our center, 86 patients underwent kidney(More)
