Camouflage images contain one or more hidden figures that remain imperceptible or unnoticed for a while. In one possible explanation, the ability to delay the perception of the hidden figures is attributed to the theory that human perception works in two main phases: feature search and conjunction search. Effective camouflage images make feature based(More)
Parathyroid carcinoma accounts for 0.5 to 4.0% of cases of primary hyperparathyroidism. The prognosis depends largely on the extent of successful resection at the time of initial operation. Therefore, early diagnosis before surgery is important. We report 3 cases of primary hyperparathyroidism. The first patient, a 20-year-old uremic female, had refractory(More)
Target geometry for mitigating phagocytosis has garnered considerable attention recently in the drug delivery field. This study examined nanoparticles (NPs) with same volume but different shapes, namely, spherical NPs (SNPs) and hexagonal nanoprisms (HNPs), and analyzed their behaviors in vitro and in vivo. These NPs were constructed with a multifunctional(More)
PURPOSE In this study, the (188)Re-labeled PEGylated nanoliposome ((188)Re-liposome) was prepared and evaluated as a therapeutic agent for glioma. MATERIALS AND METHODS The reporter cell line, F98(luc) was prepared via Lentivector expression kit system and used to set up the orthotopic glioma-bearing rat model for non-invasive bioluminescent imaging. The(More)
The sterically polymer-based liposomal complexes (SPLexes) were formed by cationic polymeric liposomes and pH-sensitive diblock copolymer were studied for their capabilities in improving the stability with high efficiency of siRNA delivery. The SPLexes were formed a dual-shelled structure and uniform size distribution. The PEGylated outer shell could(More)
Liposome in delivering radionuclide for cancer therapy has been expansively studied; however, liposome itself can be deliberately entrapped and destroyed by the reticuloendothelial system, causing an insufficiency of the drug delivery, which in turn would restrict the effectiveness of the drug. In this study, mice with subcutaneous implantation of C26(More)
The tricyclohexylphosphine-catalyzed [3 + 2] cycloaddition of (E)-alkyl 5-substituted phenylpent-4-en-2-ynoates with [60]fullerene was studied. This reaction undergoes an initial 1,3-addition of phosphines toward the α-carbons of enynoates. Subsequent cycloaddition of the generated 1,3-dipoles with [60]fullerene and elimination of tricyclohexylphosphines(More)
