Bacterial Proteinaceous Compounds With Multiple Activities Toward Cancers and Microbial Infection
This review will focus on the desirable characteristics of proteins and peptides from bacterial sources that demonstrated activity against microbial infections and cancer, as well as their efficacy in vitro and in vivo.
Anticancer peptide: Physicochemical property, functional aspect and trend in clinical application (Review)
The present review could further facilitate the design of ACPs and increase efficacious ACP therapy in the near future.
Marine-derived drugs: Recent advances in cancer therapy and immune signaling.
Multistep optimization of a cell-penetrating peptide towards its antimicrobial activity.
Interestingly, beside strong antibacterial activities, the screening of a synthetic library based on the CPP sC18 detected activity in cancer cells, while non-cancerous cells remained unharmed, highlighting the new candidates, particularly those from generation 4, as a valuable and promising source for the development of future therapeutics with antibacterial activity and beyond.
LvHemB1, a novel cationic antimicrobial peptide derived from the hemocyanin of Litopenaeus vannamei, induces cancer cell death by targeting mitochondrial voltage-dependent anion channel 1
Current cancer treatment regimens such as chemotherapy and traditional chemical drugs have adverse side effects including the appearance of drug-resistant tumor cells. For these reasons, it is
Combating bacterial resistance by combination of antibiotics with antimicrobial peptides
This mini-review outlines some of the current and past work in combining AMPs with conventional antibiotics as strategies to address bacterial resistance.
Anti-cancer peptides: their current trends in the development of peptide-based therapy and anti-tumor drugs.
This review will provide a framework for assessing anti-cancer peptides' structural and functional aspects and provide appropriate information on their mode of action to support and strengthen efforts to improve cancer prevention.
Targeted delivery of a short antimicrobial peptide against CD44-overexpressing tumor cells using hyaluronic acid-coated chitosan nanoparticles: An in vitro study
The findings confirm the significant potential of CM11 peptide against tumor cells and its delivery system in order to target these cells.
Unraveling the bioactivity of anticancer peptides as deduced from machine learning
The current state-of-the-art on the application of machine learning for studying the bioactivity of anticancer peptides along with future outlook of the field is summarized.


World health organization releases global priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria to guide research, discovery, and development of new antibiotics
This poster presents a poster presented at the 2016 International Conference of the American Academy of Anti-infective Agents (IAA) in New York, where it was hoped that this poster would provide a jumping-off point for further research into the role of E.coli in wound healing.
International Agency for Research on Cancer.
Applications for a training fellowship in 2014-2015 are invited from postdoctoral scientists who intend to pursue a career in cancer research and wish to complete their training in those aspects of cancer research related to the Agency’s mission.
