Present study investigates the potential of chemically modified (Shah et al., 2013) palmitoylated arabinogalactan (PAG) in guiding liposomal delivery system and targeting asialoglycoprotein receptors (ASGPR) which are expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). PAG was incorporated in liposomes during preparation and doxorubicin hydrochloride was actively(More)
Osteoclasts are multinuclear giant cells responsible for bone resorption in inflammatory bone diseases such as osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and periodontitis. Because of deleterious side effects with currently available drugs the search continues for novel effective and safe therapies. Thymoquinone (TQ), the major bioactive component of Nigella sativa(More)
MUC1 is a mucin family protein, overexpressed in more than 90% of breast cancers in an underglycosylated form, exposing the core peptides of the extracellular domain that act as a potential target for antibody-mediated therapy. We have developed an anti-MUC1 scFv antibody from a phage library of mice immunized with synthetic peptide MUC1-variable number of(More)
BACKGROUND Designing ideal radiopharmaceuticals for use as bone pain palliative agents requires the use of a moderate energy beta emitter as the radionuclide and a polyaminophosphonic acid as the carrier molecule. Cyclic polyaminophosphonic acid ligands are known for endowing higher thermodynamic stability and kinetic inertness of the radiolabelled agent(More)
Designing ideal radiopharmaceuticals for use as bone pain palliatives require the use of a moderate energy beta() emitter as a radionuclide and a suitable polyaminophosphonic acid as a carrier molecule. Owing to its suitable decay characteristics [T(1/2) = 6.73 d, E((max)) = 497 keV, E() = 113 keV (6.4%), 208 keV (11%)] as well as the feasibility of(More)
BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node detection was investigated in dogs with spontaneously occurring tumours. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this pilot study, 24 client-owned spontaneously tumorous dogs presented for sentinel lymph node detection. A multiple method was used with a nuclear medicine technique (injection of 99mTc human serum albumin colloid) with(More)
While [(11)C]palmitate continues to be a promising tracer for cardiovascular Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging, unfavourable logistics due to the short half-life of (11)C (20 min) and cumbersome labeling methodologies are the major impediments that limit its widespread use. In order to circumvent such limitations, an attempt has been made to(More)
We studied the in vivo performance of scaffolds consisting of nanofibrous poly(L-lactic acid) (P) and blend of poly(L-lactic acid/gelatin) (PG) prepared by electrospinning and further composited them with hydroxyapatite (HA) via alternate soaking method, to get poly(L-lactic acid)/hydroxyapatite (PH) and poly(L-lactic acid)/gelatin/hydroxyapatite (PGH)(More)
A new therapeutic radio colloid for radiosynoviorthesis (RS) applications is reported. The method of preparation involves the reaction of SmCl3 carrier with carrier added [32P]H3PO4 in the presence of gelatin. The pure colloid was recovered by dialysis purification leading to radiochemical yield of around 90%. The radiochemical purity of the pure colloid(More)
The aim of this study was to formulate an indigenous cold kit of Ubiquicidin, UBI (29-41), for easy preparation of (99m)Tc-UBI (29-41) to be used as an infection imaging agent. A two component kit with the peptide and SnCl2 as vial 1 and optimum amount of NaOH as vial 2 was successfully formulated as seen from the consistent radiochemical and pharmaceutical(More)
