Applications of magnetoliposomes with encapsulated doxorubicin for integrated chemotherapy and hyperthermia of rat C6 glioma.

Summary of "Applications of magnetoliposomes with encapsulated doxorubicin for integrated chemotherapy and hyperthermia of rat C6 glioma."

There is substantial evidence regarding enhanced antitumor cytotoxicity of selected chemotherapeutic agents by appropriate heat exposure (40-44°C). Based upon these results, the integration of hyperthermia as an additional treatment modality given simultaneously with systemic chemotherapy is currently of considerable interest. Hyperthermia can be induced by alternating magnetic field and magnetic nanoparticles. Thus, we have used thermosensitive magnetoliposomes that contained superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and doxorubicin for in vitro and in vivo therapy of rat glioma C6. The results showed that magnetoliposomes can be specifically heated to 43°C (phase transition temperature of a used lipid composition) in a few minutes, and during this, the encapsulated doxorubicin is released in a controllable manner. The in vitro experiments showed that the cell viability decreased to 79.2% after heat treatment alone and to 47.4% for doxorubicin-loaded magnetoliposomes without application of alternating magnetic field, while the combined treatment resulted in 17.3% cell viability. Also, in vivo results demonstrated that magnetic drug targeting has a strong antiglioma effect with a tumor volume growth inhibition and complete regression. Such targeted delivery and controlled release of anticancer agents would provide clinical advantages compared with currently available methods.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A concept, developed in 1983 under the aegis of and supported by the National Library of Medicine under the name of Integrated Academic Information Management Systems, to provide professionals in academic health sciences centers and health sciences institutions with convenient access to an integrated and comprehensive network of knowledge. It addresses a wide cross-section of users from administrators and faculty to students and clinicians and has applications to planning, clinical and managerial decision-making, teaching, and research. It provides access to various types of clinical, management, educational, etc., databases, as well as to research and bibliographic databases. In August 1992 the name was changed from Integrated Academic Information Management Systems to Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems to reflect use beyond the academic milieu.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

Materials, frequently computer applications, that combine some or all of text, sound, graphics, animation, and video into integrated packages. (Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors, 1994)

Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.
