The possibility to enhance drug delivery by using ultrasound in combination with microbubbles (USMB) is extensively studied. So far, these studies have focused on the delivery and efficacy of a single drug, e.g. in chemotherapy. In this study, we investigated the intracellular delivery of cisplatin by USMB and the subsequent increased efficacy in combination with radiotherapy in a head and neck cancer cell line in vitro. After USMB-mediated intracellular delivery was verified using the model-drug SYTOX® Green, we investigated the efficacy of cisplatin when combined with USMB and radiotherapy and measured whether intracellular cisplatin concentration was enhanced after applying USMB. In addition, the effect of USMB on cisplatin and radiotherapy-induced DNA damage was studied. Flow cytometry showed that USMB treatment increased the average percentage SYTOX® Green positive cells from 2.2% to 34.5%. Clonogenic assays demonstrated that exposure to USMB significantly increased the efficacy of cisplatin combined with radiotherapy. The enhanced efficacy was associated with increased intracellular cisplatin levels, which were 2.7-fold higher when cisplatin was combined with USMB. As a result, an 82% increase in levels of DNA double strand breaks was found when cisplatin was combined with USMB, compared to cisplatin only (p<0.05). In conclusion, cisplatin uptake was significantly increased by USMB, which resulted in enhanced levels of DNA damage and increased efficacy of cisplatin in combination with radiotherapy in vitro.

Orthodontically induced osteocyte apoptosis under different force magnitudes in rats: an immunohistochemical study.

Eur J Oral Sci 2017 10 8;125(5):361-370. Epub 2017 Aug 8.

Department of Orthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt.

We investigated the effect of different force magnitudes on osteocyte apoptosis in a model of orthodontic tooth movement. Forty-nine male Sprague Dawley rats (7-9 wk of age) were divided into light- and heavy-force groups (n = 21 each group) and a control group (n = 7). A coil spring delivered pressure (either 10-15 g or 20-25 g) to the left maxillary first molar. Read More

When Protocols Become Fairy Tales and Gods Remain Buried Under: Excerpts From the Diary of Forensic Experts at Ground Zero During the Mega Quake That Hit Nepal.

Am J Forensic Med Pathol 2017 Mar;38(1):5-8

From the *Department of Forensic Medicine, Kathmandu Medical College Teaching Hospital; and †Department of Forensic Medicine, Maharajgunj Medical Campus, Institute of Medicine, Kathmandu, Nepal; and ‡Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Jodhpur; and §Department of Anthropology, Panjab University, Chandigarh, India.

More than a year has passed since the mega quake hit Nepal. Although a lot is written about the lacunae in disaster preparedness, lessons learnt, and public health concerns after the aftermath, nothing much has been written about the fate of the deceased. Although saving takes priority after a disaster, the management of dead bodies also requires immediate attention because the process of identification becomes more difficult and expensive as time passes.

A matter of scale: how emerging technologies are redefining our view of chromosome architecture.

Trends Genet 2015 Aug 22;31(8):454-64. Epub 2015 Jun 22.

Centre de Biochimie Structurale, CNRS UMR5048, INSERM U1054, Université de Montpellier, 29 rue de Navacelles, 34090 Montpellier, France. Electronic address:

The 3D folding of the genome and its relation to fundamental processes such as gene regulation, replication, and segregation remains one of the most puzzling and exciting questions in genetics. In this review, we describe how the use of new technologies is starting to revolutionize the field of chromosome organization, and to shed light on the mechanisms of transcription, replication, and repair. In particular, we concentrate on recent studies using genome-wide methods, single-molecule technologies, and super-resolution microscopy (SRM). Read More

Introduction: In order to determine the frequencies of factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A point mutations in the Iranian population with Azeri Turkish origin.

Material And Methods: 120 unrelated individuals from general population randomly selected and were examined for factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A mutations using a multiplex allele specific polymerase chain reaction (MAS-PCR) assayOutcomes: The frequency of prothrombin G20210A mutation was 2.08%, which means 5 chromosomes out of 240 chromosomes had prothrombin G20210A mutation.
