Comparative Analysis of the Cytotoxic Effect of a Complex of Selenium Nanoparticles Doped with Sorafenib, "Naked" Selenium Nanoparticles, and Sorafenib on Human Hepatocyte Carcinoma HepG2 Cells.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 14;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Institute of Cell Biophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Federal Research Center "Pushchino Scientific Center for Biological Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences", 142290 Pushchino, Russia.

Despite the use of sorafenib as one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of liver cancer, its significant limitations remain-poor solubility, the need to use high doses with the ensuing complications on healthy tissues and organs, and the formation of cell resistance to the drug. At the same time, there is more and more convincing evidence of the anticancer effect of selenium-containing compounds and nanoparticles. The aim of this work was to develop a selenium-sorafenib nanocomplex and study the molecular mechanisms of its anticancer effect on human hepatocyte carcinoma cells, where nanoselenium is not only a sorafenib transporter, but also an active compound.

The Comprehensive Cancer Centre of Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, The Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School & Clinical Cancer Institute of Nanjing University, Nanjing, China.

Intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) has been considered as an effective therapy for advanced gastric cancer (GC) especially those with peritoneal metastasis, while limited effectiveness, complications caused by chemotherapeutics and repeated infusion procedures restrict the application of IPC. In this study, to enhance the efficacy and safety of IPC, we intended to establish a biocompatible and biodegradable nanocomplex composed of intelligent gelatinase-responsive nanoparticles (NPs) and thermosensitive gel, which were prepared from different compositions of poly (ethyleneglycol)-poly (3-caprolactone) (PEG-PCL). Cancer stem cells (CSCs) inhibitor Salinomycin (SAL) and non-CSC inhibitor Docetaxel (DOC) were co-loaded in the NPs and delivered by liquid PEG-PCL-PEG gel (PECE) at room temperature, which was able to target tumor and formed a gel in situ at body temperature.

Functional Shape-Morphing Microarchitectures Fabricated by Dynamic Holographically Shifted Femtosecond Multifoci.

Nano Lett 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale and CAS Key Laboratory of Mechanical Behavior and Design of Materials, Department of Precision Machinery and Precision Instrumentation, University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei 230026, China.

Functional microdevices based on responsive hydrogel show great promise in targeted delivery and biomedical analysis. Among state-of-the-art techniques for manufacturing hydrogel-based microarchitectures, femtosecond laser two-photon polymerization distinguishes itself by high designability and precision, but the point-by-point writing scheme requires mechanical apparatuses to support focus scanning. In this work, by predesigning holograms combined with lens phase modulation, multiple femtosecond laser spots are holographically generated and shifted for prototyping of three-dimensional shape-morphing structures without any moving equipment in the construction process.

Cisplatin and oleanolic acid Co-loaded pH-sensitive CaCO nanoparticles for synergistic chemotherapy.

RSC Adv 2022 May 16;12(23):14808-14818. Epub 2022 May 16.

Faculty of Life Science, Department of Pharmacy, Sarhad University of Science and Information Technology Peshawar Pakistan.

Despite being one of the most potent anticancer agents, cisplatin (CDDP) clinical usage is limited owing to the acquired resistance and severe adverse effects including nephrotoxicity. The current work has offered a unique approach by designing a pH-sensitive calcium carbonate drug delivery system for CDDP and oleanolic acid (OA) co-delivery, with an enhanced tumor efficacy and reduced unwanted effects. Micro emulsion method was employed to generate calcium carbonate cores (CDDP encapsulated) followed by lipid coating along with the OA loading resulting in the generation of lipid-coated cisplatin/oleanolic acid calcium carbonate nanoparticles (CDDP/OA-LCC NPs).

Construction and evaluation of detachable bone-targeting MOF carriers for the delivery of proteasome inhibitors.

RSC Adv 2022 May 16;12(23):14707-14715. Epub 2022 May 16.

Department of Occupational Disease Prevention, Jiangsu Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention Nanjing 210009 Jiangsu China

Tumor bone metastasis is an important cause of tumor recurrence and death. Although bone-targeting nanoparticles decorated with targeting ligands have shown good affinity for bone tissues with the properties of adhesion to the bone matrix, it is not easy to detach from the surface of the bone matrix in the tumor-bone microenvironment, attributed to the robust coordination force between the targeting ligands, such as bisphosphates with bone-deposited calcium. This may hinder the transport of nanoparticles from bone tissue to bone metastatic tumors. Read More

RNAi Efficiency through dsRNA Injection Is Enhanced by Knockdown of dsRNA Nucleases in the Fall Webworm, (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae).

Int J Mol Sci 2022 May 31;23(11). Epub 2022 May 31.

Key Laboratory of Forest Protection of National Forestry and Grassland Administration, Ecology and Nature Conservation Institute, Chinese Academy of Forestry, Beijing 100091, China.

RNA interference (RNAi) technology is a promising approach used in pest control. The efficiency of RNAi varies considerably among different insect species, and growing evidence suggests that degradation of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) prior to uptake is an important factor that limits RNAi efficiency in insects. Our recent work on fall webworm (), an important invasive pest in China, showed a relatively low silencing efficiency of RNAi through dsRNA injection, which is considered the most feasible dsRNA delivery method for inducing RNAi, and the factors involved in the mechanism remain unknown.
