To achieve deep tumor penetration of large-sized nanoparticles (NPs), we have developed a reversible swelling-shrinking nanogel in response to pH variation for a sequential intra-intercellular NP delivery. The nanogel had a crosslinked polyelectrolyte core, consisting of N-lysinal-N'-succinyl chitosan and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide), and a crosslinked(More)
In this study, a novel amphiphilic copolymer designed as N-octyl-N-phthalyl-3,6-O-(2-hydroxypropyl) chitosan (OPHPC) were synthesized and then conjugated with folic acid (FA-OPHPC) to produce a targeted drug carrier for tumor-specific drug delivery. OPHPC and FA-OPHPC were characterized by FT-IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and elemental analysis. Paclitaxel (PTX)(More)
Zwitterionic oligopeptide liposomes (HHG2C(18)-L) containing a smart lipid (1,5-dioctadecyl-L-glutamyl 2-histidyl-hexahydrobenzoic acid, HHG2C(18)) are developed to overcome the barriers faced by anticancer drugs on the route from the site of injection into the body to the final antitumor target within transport steps with multiple physiological and(More)
Quinazoline-containing derivatives are an important class of synthetic products and represent an attractive scaffold for EGFR inhibitors. A series of oxazolo[4,5-g]quinazolin-2(1H)-one derivatives were synthesized and the EGFR and Src inhibition activities were evaluated using Gefitinib as lead compound. The three most potent compounds 5y, 5l and 5a each(More)
Cell-mediated drug-delivery systems have received considerable attention for their enhanced therapeutic specificity and efficacy in cancer treatment. Neutrophils (NEs), the most abundant type of immune cells, are known to penetrate inflamed brain tumours. Here we show that NEs carrying liposomes that contain paclitaxel (PTX) can penetrate the brain and(More)
In order to find the vitamin D receptor (VDR) ligand whose VDR agonistic activity is separated from the calcemic activity sufficiently, novel nonsecosteroidal analogs with phenyl-pyrrolyl pentane skeleton were synthesized and evaluated for the VDR binding affinity, antiproliferative activity in vitro and serum calcium raising ability in vivo (tacalcitol(More)
