BACKGROUND Targeted liposome-polycation-DNA complex (LPD), mainly conjugated with antibodies using functionalized PEG derivatives, is an effective nanovector for systemic delivery of small interference RNA (siRNA). However, there are few studies reporting the effect of different conjugation linkers on LPD for gene silencing. To clarify the influence of(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a highly lethal disease with a 5-year survival rate less than 5% due to the lack of an early diagnosis method and effective therapy. To provide a novel early diagnostic method and targeted therapy for pancreatic cancer, a multifunctional nanoimmunoliposome with high loading of ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxides (USPIOs) and(More)
UNLABELLED A novel polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG400) mediated lipid nanoemulsion as drug-delivery carrier for paclitaxel (PTX) was successfully developed. The formulation comprised a PEG400 solution of the drug (25mg/mL) that would be mixed with commercially 20% lipid emulsion to form PTX-loaded nanoemulsion (1mg/mL) prior to use. This two-vial formulation(More)
This paper reports synthesis and photobiological properties of a novel chlorin photosensitizer BCPD-18MA. Cytotoxicity, cellular uptake, subcellular location, biodistribution, photodynamic therapy (PDT) efficiency, cell apoptosis as well as histological analysis of the liposomal-delivered BCPD-18MA (L-BCPD-18MA) was studied using mammary adenocarcinoma(More)
