Discovery of the cancer-specific peptidic ligands have been emphasized for active targeting drug delivery system and non-invasive imaging. For the discovery of useful and applicable peptidic ligands, in vivo peptide-displayed phage screening has been performed in this study using a xenograft mouse model as a mimic microenvironment to tumor. To seek human(More)
Hollow gold nanoparticles (HGNP) are a novel class of hybrid metal nanoparticles whose unique optical and morphological properties have spawned new applications including more effective cancer therapy. The shell thickness of HGNPs can tune the surface plasmon resonance to the near infrared light, resulting in photothermal ablation of tumors with optimal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Ibulocydine (IB), a novel prodrug of CDK inhibitor, has been reported to have anti-cancer effect in human hepatoma cells. In order to address its feasibility as a radiosensitizer to improve radiotherapeutic efficacy for human cancers, this study was designed. MATERIAL AND METHODS Human cancer cells of lung and colon were treated(More)
Radiotherapy (RT) is one of the major modalities for non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but its efficacy is often compromised by cellular resistance caused by various mechanisms including the overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Although cis‑diamminedichloroplatinum(Ⅱ) (cisplatin, CDDP) has been well characterized as an effective(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-induced ligand (TRAIL) induces apoptosis selectively in cancer cells without affecting the majority of normal human cells. However, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells often display resistance to TRAIL-induced apoptosis. Ibulocydine (IB) is an isobutyrate ester pro-drug of a novel synthetic Cdk inhibitor that targets(More)
Bionanocapsules (BNCs) are hollow nanoparticles consisting of hepatitis B virus (HBV) envelope L proteins and have been shown to deliver drugs and genes specifically to human hepatic tissues by utilizing HBV-derived infection machinery. The complex of BNCs with liposomes (LPs), the BNC-LP complexes (a LP surrounded by BNCs in a rugged spherical form), could(More)
This paper presents the method to generate visual information to control robot manipulator in remote-site. Unlike the existing method, the proposed method uses Kinectfusion method for reconstructing a dense 3D environment. Based on the 3D data, we propose a visual guidance system such as guideline for alignment, auto-zooming and multi-view function. Then,(More)
Designing nanocarriers with active targeting has been increasingly emphasized as for an ideal delivery mechanism of anti-cancer therapeutic agents, but the actualization has been constrained by lack of reliable strategy ultimately applicable. Here, we designed and verified a strategy to achieve active targeting nanomedicine that works in a living body,(More)
