OBJECTIVE Binding of ICAM-1 expressed on cardiomyocytes decreases cardiomyocyte contractility in vitro by altering the intracellular Ca2+ transient. We tested the hypothesis that signaling via ICAM-1 contributes to decreased left ventricular contractility in an in vivo model of systemic inflammation. METHODS C57B6 wild-type mice and ICAM-1 knock-out mice(More)
BACKGROUND In this paper, a series of amphiphilic triblock copolymers based on polyethylene glycol-poly ɛ-caprolactone-polyethylenimine (mPEG-PCL-g-PEI) were successfully synthesized, and their application for codelivery of chemotherapeutic drugs and DNA simultaneously was investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS These copolymers could self-assemble into(More)
Polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) have great potential application in achieving targeted delivery of anticancer drugs. Paclitaxel (PTX) loaded NPs were developed using biodegradable methoxy poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (ε-caprolactone) (MPEG-PCL) diblock copolymer by solid dispersion technique without toxic organic solvent. The lyophilized powder has been stored(More)
In this article, polysorbate 80 coated poly (ɛ-caprolactone)-poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (ɛ-caprolactone) (PCEC) micelles were successfully prepared for paclitaxel (PTX) delivery. The particle size distribution, morphology, drug loading, encapsulation efficiency and sustained release profile of the micelles were studied in detail. The safety of the micelle(More)
In attempt to overcome the problem of low water solubility and severe toxicity of camptothecin (CPT) after intravenous administration, a novel drug carrier system based on chitosan (CS) and dibasic sodium phosphate (DSP) has been developed in this paper to encapsulate CPT intending for local administration. Nanocolloids of CPT with size about 500  nm were(More)
The great potential of oridonin (ORI) for clinical application in cancer therapy is greatly limited due to its poor water-solubility. The purpose of this study was to increase the water solubility of oridonin using monomethoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (MPEG-PCL) as drug carrier. The ORI-loaded MPEG-PCL micelles were prepared by thin(More)
Self-assembled polymeric micelles are widely applied in drug delivery system. In this study, Tacrolimus (FK506) loaded micelles were prepared based on biodegradable poly(ɛ-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(ɛ-caprolactone) (PCEC) copolymers. Micelles were prepared by self-assembly of triblock copolymer PCEC in distilled water triggered by its(More)
As a traditional immunosuppressive drug, tacrolimus showed the potency in treating ulcerative colitis. In this study, a novel drug delivery vehicle achieved by self-assembly was applied to tacrolimus. During the preparation, amphiphilic copolymer MPEG-PCL was chosen to form the unique core-shell structure, and tacrolimus was loaded into the hydrophobic core(More)
In this paper, discriminant linear local tangent space alignment (MDLLTSA) is proposed in order to solve the problems of local tangent space alignment (LTSA) in image recognition, such as implicitness of the nonlinear map or class information of data is ignored. With local tangent space representing for local geometrical structure of the manifold of the(More)
In this paper, we successfully synthesized amino-terminated poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly (epsilon-caprolactone) (NH2-PEG-PCL) block copolymer from polyethylene glycol 2000, epsilon-caprolactone (epsilon-CL) and hydrazine hydrate. The obtained copolymer was characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR), the molecular weight and distribution of(More)
