microRNAs (miRNAs) play integral roles in diverse processes including tumorigenesis. miRNA gene loci are often found in close conjunction, and such clustered miRNA genes are transcribed from a common promoter to generate polycistronic primary transcript. The primary transcript (pri-miRNA) is then processed by two RNase III proteins to release the mature(More)
Current systemic chemotherapy in the treatment of solid tumors inevitably induces various systemic adverse effects. Locally injected chemotherapy is expected to overcome this limitation of systemic therapy. We evaluated by luminescence imaging the effects of chemotherapy administered locally by means of a biodegradable thermosensitive hydrogel polymer. The(More)
The prognosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis is regarded as poor because safe, effective therapeutic modalities are lacking. Intraperitoneal chemotherapy is one treatment option, involving the delivery of a high concentration of chemotherapeutic drugs into the abdominal cavity, but the severe side effects associated with such treatment are a major obstacle in(More)
