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)
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)
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)
3, 3-Diindolylmethane-14 (DIM-14), a novel lipophilic derivative of DIM, has demonstrated anticancer activity in different types of cancers. However, poor solubility and low oral bioavailability of DIM-14 limit its translational benefits in vivo. This study was carried out to improve the oral bioavailability of DIM-14 via self-emulsifying drug (SED)(More)
The present study demonstrates the promising anticancer effects of novel C-substituted diindolylmethane (DIM) derivatives DIM-10 and DIM-14 in aggressive TNBC models. In vitro studies demonstrated that these compounds possess strong anticancer effects. Caco-2 permeability studies resulted in poor permeability and poor oral bioavailability was demonstrated(More)
Skin cancer has high incidence in the United States and is mainly caused by ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation. In this study, we demonstrated the role of 1,1-bis(3'-indolyl)-1-(p-chlorophenyl) methane (DIM-D) in the prevention of skin photocarcinogenesis using an in vivo UVB-induced skin cancer model. We also evaluated the efficiency of oleic acid-modified(More)
AIM Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disorder with substantial negative impact on the patient's quality of life. The present study was carried out to demonstrate the efficiency of a novel topical delivery system in the transport of two siRNAs for the treatment of psoriatic-like plaques. MATERIALS & METHODS We designed and developed a novel fusogenic(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a versatile class of tiny non-coding RNAs involved in regulation of various biological processes. miRNA-122 (miR-122) is specifically and abundantly expressed in human liver. However, the role of miR-122 in differentiation of fetal liver stem/progenitor cells into hepatocytes remains unclear. In this study, dual positive CD34+/CD117+(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)
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)
