Progression of solid tumors depends on vascularization and angiogenesis in a malignant tissue. Among a whole range of proangiogenic factors, a vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) plays a key role. Blockade of VEGF may lead to regression of vascular network and inhibition of a tumor growth. In the present time, bevacizumab has been introduced into(More)
The efficiency of conventional chemotherapy for aggressive tumors in the CNS remains low and new strategies for the targeted delivery of anti-tumor substances are now actively developed. Pegylated liposomes covalently conjugated with monoclonal antibodies to VEGF synthesized by us are nanoparticle characterized by narrow size distribution and high(More)
cDNA extracellular Ig-like domains I-III of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2) was cloned in an expressing vector pET_32a. Western blotting showed immunochemical identity of recombinant VEGFR2I-III produced by prokaryotic expression system to the native receptor. BALB/c mice were immunized with VEGFR2I-III for obtaining specific(More)
UNLABELLED This work is focused on synthesis and characterization of targeted magnetic nanoparticles as magnetic resonance imaging (МRI) agents for in vivo visualization of gliomas. Ferric oxide (Fe3O4) cores were synthesized by thermal decomposition and coated with bovine serum albumin (BSA) to form nanoparticles with Deff of 53±9nm. The BSA was further(More)
We developed a method for obtaining iron oxide nanoparticles and their conjugation with monoclonal antibodies to vascular endothelial growth factor. The resultant vector nanoparticles were low-toxic and the antibodies retained their immunochemical activity after conjugation. The study was carried out on rats with intracranial glioma C6 on day 14 after its(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common type of primary brain cancer that characterized by poor prognosis due to the rapid progression, active angiogenesis, enhanced tumor cell invasion and the emergence of resistance toward conventional therapy. In this connection, nowadays, new approaches for selective inhibition of crucial steps in tumor progression are(More)
Solid tumor progression largely depends on vascularization and angiogenesis in the malignant tissue. The most prominent among all proangiogenic factors is vascular endothelium growth factor (VEGF). VEGF suppression leads to retrogression of neoplastic vessels and tumor growth restriction. Clinical trials of complex antiangiogenic and chemical therapy of(More)
Female BALB/c mice were subcutaneously immunized with recombinant VEGF-164. After 3 immunization cycles, splenic B cells from immunized mouse were fused with immortalized myeloma culture SP2/0-Ag14 cells. Screening of hybrid cells producing anti-VEGF antibodies was performed by ELISA and immunocytochemical analysis on cultured C6 glioma cells. Subsequent(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive form of brain tumor. Early and accurate diagnosis of glioma and its borders is an important step for its successful treatment. One of the promising targets for selective visualization of glioma and its margins is connexin 43 (Cx43), which is highly expressed in reactive astrocytes and migrating glioma cells.(More)
cDNA encoding VEGF and Ig-like extracellular domains 2-4 of VEGFR-1 (sFlt-12-4) were cloned into prokaryotic expression vectors pET32a and pQE60. Recombinant proteins were purifi ed (metal affi nity chromatography) and renatured. Chemiluminescent study for the interaction of recombinant VEGF and sFlt-12-4 showed that biotinylated VEGF specifi cally binds to(More)
