Nanoparticles in cancer therapy and diagnosis.
The in vivo fate of these systems, after intravascular or tumoral administration, is discussed, as well as the mechanism involved in tumor regression, and the application of nanoparticles in imaging for cancer diagnosis is focused on. Expand
Stimuli-responsive nanocarriers for drug delivery.
Recent advances in the design of nanoscale stimuli-responsive systems that are able to control drug biodistribution in response to specific stimuli, either exogenous (variations in temperature, magnetic field, ultrasound intensity, light or electric pulses) or endogenous (changes in pH, enzyme concentration or redox gradients). Expand
Nanocarriers’ entry into the cell: relevance to drug delivery
This review will discuss nanocarriers able to deliver anticancer agents, nucleic acids, proteins and peptides for therapeutic applications by these non-phagocytic routes, starting with the phagocytosis pathway. Expand
Porous metal-organic-framework nanoscale carriers as a potential platform for drug delivery and imaging.
It is shown that specific non-toxic porous iron(III)-based metal-organic frameworks with engineered cores and surfaces, as well as imaging properties, function as superior nanocarriers for efficient controlled delivery of challenging antitumoural and retroviral drugs against cancer and AIDS. Expand
Poly(alkylcyanoacrylates) as biodegradable materials for biomedical applications.
An extensive review of the developments and applications of PACAs as nanoparticles for the delivery of drugs is given and considerations concerning the degradation, in vivo distribution, toxicity and cytotoxicity of the nanoparticles are discussed. Expand
Colloidal carriers and blood-brain barrier (BBB) translocation: a way to deliver drugs to the brain?
The use of nanotechnologies (liposomes, nanoparticles) is especially discussed in the ultimate part of the review evidencing their potentiality as non-invasive technique in the brain delivery of drugs with the possibility to target specific brain tissue thanks to ligand linked to carrier surface.

Nanotechnology: Intelligent Design to Treat Complex Disease
The purpose of this expert review is to discuss the impact of nanotechnology in the treatment of the major health threats including cancer, infections, metabolic diseases, autoimmune diseases, andExpand
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and eicosanoids in human health and pathologies.
It is suggested that consumption of a diet enriched in n-3 PUFA and inhibition of COX-2 by NSAIDs may confer cardioprotective effects and provide a significant mechanism for the prevention and treatment of human cancers. Expand
