BACKGROUND The poor bioavailability of Berberine (BBR) and Betulinic acid (BA) limits the development of these promising anticancer agents for clinical use. In the current study, BBR and BA in spray dried (SD) mucoadhesive microparticle formulations were prepared. METHODS A patented dual channel spray gun technology established in our laboratory was used(More)
The orphan nuclear receptor 4A1 (NR4A1) is overexpressed in mammary tumors and breast cancer cell lines. The functional activity of this receptor was investigated by RNA interference with oligonucleotides targeted to NR4A1 (siNR4A1) and by treatment with NR4A1 antagonists. Breast cancer cells were treated with NR4A1 antagonists or transfected with siNR4A.(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of Telmisartan (Tel) and Losartan (Los) on nanoparticle intratumoral distribution and anticancer effects in lung cancer. A549 lung tumor cells were orthotopically and metastatically administered to Nu/nu mice. Fluorescent polystyrene nanoparticles (FPNPs, size ~200 nm) beads were used to study(More)
Chemosensitization and enhanced delivery to solid tumor are widely explored strategies to augment the anticancer efficacy of existing chemotherapeutics agents. The aim of current research was to investigate the role of low dose Noscapine (Nos) in potentiating docetaxel cytotoxicity and enhancing tumor penetration of nanocarriers. The objectives are; (1) To(More)
Very low oral bioavailability due to extensive pre-systemic metabolism and P-gp efflux has constrained the oral metronomic chemotherapy of docetaxel (DTX). There is tremendous need of compounds facilitating oral delivery of DTX. The research was aimed to investigate the effect of piperlongumine (PPL) on human liver microsomal metabolism, Caco-2(More)
AIM Therapeutic efficacy of anticancer nanomedicine is compromised by tumor stromal barriers. The present study deals with the development of docetaxel loaded PEGylated liposomes (DTXPL) and to investigate the effect of tumor stroma disrupting agent, telmisartan, on anticancer efficacy of DTXPL. METHODS DTXPL was prepared using proprietary modified(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to demonstrate the anti-skin cancer and chemopreventive potential of 1,1-bis(3'-indolyl)-1-(p-chlorophenyl methane) (DIM-D) using an in vitro model. METHODS In vitro cell cytotoxicity and viability assays were carried out in A431 human epidermoid carcinoma cell line and normal human epidermal keratinocytes (NHEK)(More)
In this study, we demonstrate for the first time the concurrent transdermal delivery of erlotinib and IL36α siRNA as a potential dual therapy for psoriasis. The objectives were to develop and evaluate lipid nanocarriers (CYnLIP) using a novel pyrrolidinium lipid to disrupt the skin barrier for enhanced transdermal delivery. CYnLIP (132.00±6.23nm) had(More)
Therapeutic efficacy of nanocarriers can be amplified by active targeting and overcoming the extracellular matrix associated barriers of tumors. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of oral antifibrotic agent (telmisartan) on tumor uptake and anticancer efficacy of EphA2 receptor targeted liposomes. Docetaxel loaded PEGylated liposomes(More)
PURPOSE In this study, we developed cationic ultra-flexible nanocarriers (UltraFLEX-Nano) to surmount the skin barrier structure and to potentiate the topical delivery of a highly lipophilic antioxidative diindolylmethane derivative (DIM-D) for the inhibition of UV-induced DNA damage and skin carcinogenesis. METHODS UltraFLEX-Nano was prepared with(More)
