Lung cancer is one of the most deadly diseases worldwide. The current first-line therapies include chemotherapy using epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors and radiotherapies. With the current progress in identifying new molecular targets, acquired drug resistance stands as an obstacle for good prognosis. About half the patients(More)
Monosialoganglioside GM1 is a known neurotrophic factor. Nerve growth factor (NGF), a member of the neurotrophin family, is important for the survival, differentiation and maturation of neurons. The aim of this study was to test whether administration of GM1 and NGF can ameliorate glutamate (Glu) neurotoxicity in primary cultured embryonic rat dorsal root(More)
Monosialoganglioside (GM1) has been considered to have a neurotrophic factor-like activity. Nerve growth factor (NGF), a member of the neurotrophin family, is essential for neuronal survival, differentiation and maturation. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether co-administration of GM1 and NGF reverses glutamate (Glu) neurotoxicity in(More)
Innovation in the last decade has endowed nanotechnology with an assortment of tools for drug delivery system, imaging, and sensing in cancer research. These rapidly emerging tools are indicative of a burgeoning field ready to expand into medical applications. The aim of this study is to analyze the applications of nanotechnology in oncology with(More)
