Nanotechnology offers an alternative to conventional treatment options by enabling different drug delivery and controlled-release delivery strategies. Liposomes being especially biodegradable and in most cases essentially nontoxic offer a versatile platform for several different delivery approaches that can potentially enhance the delivery and targeting of(More)
This paper reviews methodologic issues pertinent to the application of epidemiology in risk assessment and discusses concerns in the presentation of results from such an activity. Assessment of the health risks associated with occupational and environmental exposures involves four phases: hazard identification, i.e., the detection of the potential for(More)
Cytochrome P4501A1 (CYP1A1), which is involved in the metabolic activation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon procarcinogens derived from tobacco smoke, is induced in the lung up to 100-fold because of tobacco smoking. Our aim was to study whether promoter methylation has any role in the smoking-associated expression of CYP1A1 in human lung. Methylation of(More)
