The efficacy of traditional chemotherapy often suffers from rapid clearance and off-target toxicity. Drug delivery systems and controlled release are applied to improve the therapeutic efficiencies of small-molecule drugs. In this work, two novel oxidative/reductive (Ox/Re) -sensitive and one non-sensitive Paclitaxel (PTX) prodrugs were synthesized with a maleimide group, which rapidly conjugates with albumin in vivo. Albumin serves as a good vehicle to deliver more prodrug to tumors due to the enhanced permeation and retention (EPR) effect. PTX was then released from the prodrugs in glutathione(GSH)/ reactive oxygen species(ROS)-rich tumor microenvironments. This bioresponsive prodrug strategy demonstrates potent chemotherapeutic efficiency in vivo and may be utilized in clinical cancer therapy.

Name: Drug delivery
This randomized phase 2 trial compared the efficacy and safety of second-line nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) with or without the addition of CC-486 (an oral formulation of 5-az...
Targeted delivery and accumulation of chemotherapeutics to tumor sites is in high demand and extremely challenging for anticancer therapy. Studies show that albumin is actively recruited into tumor ti...
The first phase II clinical trial aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of S-1 plus nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (Nab-PTX) as first-line chemotherapy for advanced gastric cancer (AGC). Pr...
Nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel), a microtubule inhibitor, has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) either as monotherap...
The objectives of this study were to assess the feasibility of preoperative gemcitabine/nab-paclitaxel-based chemoradiation therapy (CRT) for patients with borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRP...
Weekly Nanoparticle Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel (Abraxane) + Weekly Cetuximab + Radiation Therapy (IMRT, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy) in Patients With Stage III-IVB Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC)
For patients with this type of cancer, one standard treatment option is cetuximab (Erbitux®) + radiation. We wish to study the addition of albumin-bound paclitaxel (Abraxane®) to this st...
Pancreatic cancer progresses rapidly and has a higher death rate. Albumin-bound paclitaxel is a new generation of paclitaxel . Albumin-bound paclitaxel is recommended as a class 1A evidenc...
The PIPAC nab-pac study is designed to examine the safety and efficacy of IV paclitaxel combined with repeated pressurized intraperitoneal aerosol therapy (PIPAC) using albumin bound nanop...
The study is to evaluate the R0 resection rate of patients with unresectable locally advanced pancreatic cancer ,after treated with S-1 plus Paclitaxel-albumin as neoadjuvant chemotherapy ...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells...
An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.
A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
