There is still lack of effective treatment of esophageal cancer, and it is urgently necessary to develop a new programs to treat this disease. More and more evidence suggests that the combination of 2 or more treatment strategies can enhance the antitumor activity in cancer treatment. We have established a new therapeutic strategy that combines doxorubicin-loaded poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL)-Pluronic micelles and miR-34a to better combat esophageal cancer. Doxorubicin was loaded into PCL-Pluronic micelle to achieve better uptake. Confocal microscopy was used to assess in vitro cellular uptake of PCL-Pluronic micelle. Finally, the in vivo effect of this new combination therapy strategy was also studied. The results showed that PCL-Plannick micelles significantly enhanced the uptake of doxorubicin in esophageal cancer cells in vitro, thereby improving the accumulation of doxorubicin in the cells. In vitro and in vivo combination of doxorubicin-loaded PCL-Pluronic micelles and miR-34a, achieving a significantly synergistic therapeutic effect over the corresponding single treatment. These results suggested that the combinational therapy based on doxorubicin-loaded PCL-Pluronic micelle and miR-34a may provide a reasonable strategy for improving the outcome of esophageal cancer treatment.

To prepare ion exchange doxorubicin-loaded poly (acrylic acid) microspheres (DPMs) and evaluate the properties of these chemoembolic agents.
This study explored a new rosuvastatin calcium- and heparin-loaded poly(L-lactide-co-caprolactone) (PLCL) scaffold for covered stents in treating aneurysms. The mechanism of rosuvastatin-induced endot...
Drug resistance and recurrence are the main clinical challenges in chemotherapy of lymphoma. Methotrexate (MTX), especially high dose MTX (HD MTX), is extensively used to treat some aggressive subtype...
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...
This paper reports the interaction between Pluronic F127, P123 and their mixed micelles with methylparaben and propylparaben. The UV studies revealed that, the spectral behavior of mixed micelle of F1...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel-loaded polymeric micelle and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the response rate in patients with taxane-pretreated recurrent breast cancer receiving paclitaxel loaded polymeric micelle (Genexol-PM).
The purpose of this study is to compare adhesion prophylaxis with polylactide-caprolactone-trimethylenecarbonate copolymer to icodextrin 4% in terms of safety, side effects and usability i...
This is a randomized clinical trial of Paclitaxel (Genexol®) and Cisplatin versus Paclitaxel loaded polymeric micelle (Genexol-PM®) and Cisplatin in advanced non small cell lung cancer.
The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate the distribution of radiopaque microspheres loaded with doxorubicin in the treatment of unresectable HCC. Prospective, single arm, open labe...
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
A poly(A) binding protein that is involved in promoting the extension of the poly A tails of MRNA. The protein requires a minimum of ten ADENOSINE nucleotides in order for binding to mRNA. Once bound it works in conjunction with CLEAVAGE AND POLYADENYLATION SPECIFICITY FACTOR to stimulate the rate of poly A synthesis by POLY A POLYMERASE. Once poly-A tails reach around 250 nucleotides in length poly(A) binding protein II no longer stimulates POLYADENYLATION. Mutations within a GCG repeat region in the gene for poly(A) binding protein II have been shown to cause the disease MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, OCULOPHARYNGEAL.
A poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase that contains two ZINC FINGERS in its N-terminal DNA-binding region. It modifies NUCLEAR PROTEINS involved in chromatin architecture and BASE EXCISION REPAIR with POLY ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE.
A poly(A) binding protein that has a variety of functions such as mRNA stabilization and protection of RNA from nuclease activity. Although poly(A) binding protein I is considered a major cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein it is also found in the CELL NUCLEUS and may be involved in transport of mRNP particles.
Post-translational modification of proteins with POLY ADENOSINE DIPHOSPHATE RIBOSE.

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...
