J Photochem Photobiol B 2021 Jul 25;222:112274. Epub 2021 Jul 25.

Key Laboratory for Photonic and Electronic Bandgap Materials, Ministry of Education, College of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering, Harbin Normal University, Harbin 150025, China; Key Laboratory of Molecular Cytogenetics and Genetic Breeding of Heilongjiang Province, College of Life Science and Technology, Harbin Normal University, Harbin 150025, China. Electronic address:

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has gained much attention in tumor therapy because of its special advantages. PDT heavily depends on the oxygen, yet the tumor microenvironment (TME) is a hypoxic and acid milieu, which weakens the PDT effect. Based on the consideration that the TME deteriorated by the PDT oxygen consumption could activate the hypoxic-sensitive small-molecule drug, we designed and prepared an integrated nanocomposite including zirconium ion metal organic framework (carrier), pyropheophorbide-a (PPa, photosensitizer), and 6-amino flavone (AF, hypoxic-sensitive drug), aiming to exert a cascaded PDT-chemotherapy (CT) antitumor effect and to solve the hypoxic challenge.

Senolytic treatment modulates decidualization in human endometrial stromal cells.

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2021 Jul 27;571:174-180. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Endocrine Pharmacology, Tokyo University of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Decidualization - the differentiation of endometrial stromal cells (ESCs) into decidual cells - is a crucial step for successful embryo implantation and placentation that is initiated in the secretory phase of the menstrual cycle. During decidualization, ESCs undergo proliferation arrest and secrete inflammatory mediators, including senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). Although several senolytic agents improve age-related diseases, their effects on cellular senescence in decidualizing ESCs has not been explored. Read More

Managing rumination and worry: A pilot study of an internet intervention targeting repetitive negative thinking in Australian adults.

J Affect Disord 2021 Jul 23;294:483-490. Epub 2021 Jul 23.

Black Dog Institute, The University of New South Wales, Sydney, NSW, 2052, Australia.

Background: Rumination and worry, both forms of repetitive negative thinking (RNT), have been implicated in the onset, maintenance, severity, and relapse risk of depression and anxiety disorders. Despite promising initial findings for internet-delivered interventions targeting both rumination and worry simultaneously, no studies have investigated treatment effects in an adult population or when delivered in a brief, unguided format. We developed a 3-lesson unguided online treatment program targeting both rumination and worry and evaluated the adherence and effectiveness in Australian adults using an open pilot trial. Read More

Electronic address:

We previously reported the anticancer activity of 4-(4-fluorobenzylcarbamoylmethyl)-3-(4-cyclohexylphenyl)-2-[3-(N,N-dimethylureido)-N'-methylpropylamino]-3,4-dihydroquinazoline (OZ-001), a T-type calcium channel (TTCC) blocker, against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in vitro and in vivo. Here, we evaluated the synergistic effect of OZ-001 and cisplatin on A549 human lung cancer cells and A549 xenograft mice. Our study demonstrated that treatment with OZ-001 and cisplatin sensitized A549 cells to cisplatin and significantly inhibited cell growth, increased the number of terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL)-positive cells, and induced poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage in A549 cells and an A549 xenograft tumor mouse model.

PCNA inhibition enhances the cytotoxicity of β-lapachone in NQO1-Positive cancer cells by augmentation of oxidative stress-induced DNA damage.

Cancer Lett 2021 Jul 27. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, 46202, USA. Electronic address:

β-Lapachone is a classic quinone-containing antitumor NQO1-bioactivatable drug that directly kills NQO1-overexpressing cancer cells. However, the clinical applications of β-lapachone are primarily limited by its high toxicity and modest lethality. To overcome this side effect and expand the therapeutic utility of β-lapachone, we demonstrate the effects of a novel combination therapy including β-lapachone and the proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) inhibitor T2 amino alcohol (T2AA) on various NQO1 cancer cells.
