Recently, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been shown to provide a novel approach to overcome tumors, especially those of hepatocarcinoma. However, the anticancer mechanism of silver nanoparticles is unclear. Thus, the purpose of this study was to estimate the effect of AgNPs on proliferation and activation of ROS-mediated signaling pathway on human(More)
Small interfering RNA (siRNA) as a new therapeutic modality holds promise for cancer treatment, but it is unable to cross cell membrane. To overcome this limitation, nanotechnology has been proposed for mediation of siRNA transfection. Selenium (Se) is a vital dietary trace element for mammalian life and plays an essential role in the growth and functioning(More)
As the therapeutic agent for antiviral applications, the clinical use of oseltamivir is limited with the appearance of drug-resistant viruses. It is important to explore novel anti-influenza drugs. The antiviral activity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has attracted increasing attention in recent years and was a possibility to be employed as a biomedical(More)
Hepatocarcinoma is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths around the world. Recently, a novel emerging nanosystem as anticancer therapeutic agents with intrinsic therapeutic properties has been widely used in various medical applications. In this study, surface decoration of functionalized silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) by polyethylenimine (PEI) and(More)
As one of the most effective drugs for influenza virus infection, clinical application of zanamivir is restricted with the emergence of resistant influenza virus. It is crucial to manufacture novel pharmaceuticals against influenza virus infection. In recent years silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have attracted wide attention in the antiviral field. In this(More)
As an effective antiviral agent, the clinical application of oseltamivir (OTV) is limited by the appearance of drug-resistant viruses. Due to their low toxicity and excellent activity, the antiviral capabilities of selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) has attracted increasing attention in recent years. To overcome the limitation of drug resistance, the use of(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is one of the major causative agents of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), which mainly occurs in children. Children with EV71 infection can develop severe neurological diseases. Heat shock protein 78 (HSP78) facilitates proper protein folding during viral propagation and is induced during virus infection. Nevertheless, the role that(More)
