Reliability for Drug Targeting In Cancer Treatment through Nanotechnology (A Psychometric Approach)

Nader Ebrahimi and Ali Mansoori G

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 28, 2014

The primary focus of the nanotechnology therapeutic approaches has been on early disease detection, drug discovery and monitoring, controlled release of therapeutic agents, and targeted drug delivery. Targeted drug delivery system requires more research including statistical modelling to establish the reliability in success of drug targeting. This part of every nanotechnology therapeutic approach is especially fundamental for reaching stronger therapeutic effects with lower side effects....

Anti-Oxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Vildagliptin in NonAlcoholic Fatty Liver Disease of Mice

Sahar Mohamed Kamal

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 13, 2014

Background: Vildagliptin is one of the Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors. It is used as a novel oral anti-diabetic drug for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) with significant control of glycated hemoglobin and a lower incidence of hypoglycemia or weight gain. Aim: The present study hypothesized that the DPP-4 inhibitor vildagliptin may exert protective effects on liver in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) in cholesterol-fed albino mice. Methods: Thirty six albi...

Boron Neutron Capture Therapy of Cancer as a Part of Modern Nanomedicine

Alexander V. Safronov

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: August 16, 2014

Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is a method of cancer therapy with a simple idea behind it. Positioning a certain amount of 10B-enriched boron-containing compounds into tumor cells with subsequent irradiation of the tumor tissue by thermal or epithermal neutrons causes tumor damage and death. The mechanism of the tumor cell damage during BNCT is based on the capture-fission reaction between the boron-10 nucleus and a neutron resulting in an α-particle release inside the cell. A success...
