Nanoparticles have many potential applications in tumor therapy. Systemically administered nanoparticles should remain in circulation for a long time to increase their accumulation in targeted tissues before being cleared by the reticuloendothelial system, and be effectively internalized by the targeted cells, which can be influenced significantly by the(More)
Lung metastasis is one of the greatest challenges for breast cancer treatment. Here, a nanodiamonds (NDs)-mediated doxorubicin (DOX) delivery system was first designed to inhibit the lung metastasis of breast cancer effectively. DOX was non-covalently bound to NDs via physical adsorption in an aqueous solution, then DSPE-PEG 2K was coated to the NDs-DOX(More)
Advanced colorectal cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, with a 5-year survival rate of only 12% for patients with the metastatic disease. Checkpoint inhibitors, such as the antibodies inhibiting the PD-1/PD-L1 axis, are among the most promising immunotherapies for patients with advanced colon cancer, but their durable response rate remains low. We(More)
BACKGROUND AND METHODS A new amphiphilic comb-shaped copolymer (SP) was synthesized by conjugating poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) with low molecular weight polyethyleneimine for gene delivery. Fourier transform infrared spectrum, (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance, and gel permeation chromatography were used to characterize the graft copolymer. RESULTS(More)
An effective, nontoxic, tumor-specific immunotherapy is the ultimate goal in the battle against cancer, especially the metastatic disease. Checkpoint blockade-based immunotherapies have been shown to be extraordinarily effective but benefit only the minority of patients whose tumors have been pre-infiltrated by T cells. Here, we show that Zn-pyrophosphate(More)
To maximize the interference efficacy of pGPU6/Neo-p65 shRNA-expressing pDNA (p65 shRNA) and subsequently more effectively inhibit tumor growth and lymphatic metastasis through blocking the nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) signaling pathway, seven Tween 85-polyethyleneimine (PEI) conjugates (TnPs, n=2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8), which differed in the length of the(More)
The genotoxic agent cisplatin, used alone or in combination with radiation and/or other chemotherapeutic agents, is an important first-line chemotherapy for a broad range of cancers. The clinical utility of cisplatin is limited both by intrinsic and acquired resistance and dose-limiting normal tissue toxicity. That cisplatin shows little selectivity for(More)
The development of safe and efficient gene delivery systems is still a challenge for successful gene therapy. In this work, low molecular weight polyethylenimine (PEI 2K) was modified by Tween 85, which bears three oleate chains. Tween 85 modified PEI 2K (TP) could condense DNA efficiently, and TP/DNA complexes (TPCs) showed high resistance to salt-induced(More)
The combination of a chemotherapeutic drug with a multidrug resistance (MDR) modulator has emerged as a promising strategy for treating MDR cancer. To ensure two drugs could be simultaneously delivered to tumor region at the optimum ratio, and the MDR modulator could be released earlier and faster than the chemotherapeutic drug to inactivate P-glycoprotein(More)
