Peptide nanotube for carbon dioxide chemisorption with regeneration properties and water compatibility.

A solid peptide nanotube material based on the self-assembled heptapeptide Ac-KLVFFAL-NH2 (KL-7) was demonstrated to be capable of selective chemisorption of carbon dioxide. The selective adsorption r...

Advances in the techniques and methodologies of cancer gene therapy.

Cancer is the second leading cause of mortality worldwide after cardiovascular diseases, predominantly due to the lack of early symptoms and early diagnosis, and high relapse rate after radical surger...

Liquid biopsy using the nanotube-CTC-chip: capture of invasive CTCs with high purity using preferential adherence in breast cancer patients.

In this paper, we report the development of the nanotube-CTC-chip for isolation of tumor-derived epithelial cells (circulating tumor cells, CTCs) from peripheral blood, with high purity, by exploiting...

Long-term treatment with valganciclovir improves lentiviral suicide gene therapy of glioblastoma.

Suicide gene therapy for malignant gliomas has shown encouraging results in the latest clinical trials. However, prodrug application was most often restricted to short-term treatment (14 days), especi...

A Prussian Blue ZnO Carbon Nanotube Composite for Chronoamperometrically Assaying HO in BT20 and 4T1 Breast Cancer Cells.

A Prussian Blue (PB) zinc oxide carbon nanotube sensing composite was developed for the rapid assaying of HO generated from BT20 and 4T1 breast cancer cells, important for elucidating mechanisms gover...

Phase I Study Combining Suicide Gene Therapy With Chemoradiotherapy in the Treatment of Non-Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

The primary purpose of this phase I study is to determine the safety of combining replication-competent adenovirus-mediated suicide gene therapy with chemoradiotherapy in patients with non...

Community-Based Cognitive Therapy for Suicide Attempters

This study will determine the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in preventing future suicide attempts in repeat suicide attempters.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Suicide Prevention

The purpose of this study is to test a psychotherapeutic intervention that integrates cognitive therapy and mindfulness meditation techniques to prevent suicide in military veterans.

Effectiveness of Cognitive Therapy for Suicide Attempters With Drug Dependence Disorder

This study will examine the effectiveness of combining cognitive therapy with enriched usual care for preventing subsequent suicide attempts in people with a drug dependence who have recen...

Suicide Prevention Among Substance Abusing Homeless Youth

The literature is characterized by a dearth of information on interventions for homeless youth, and no suicide prevention intervention has been tested with these youth. Such focus is criti...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The act of killing oneself.

Solutions or mixtures of toxic and nontoxic substances elaborated by snake (Ophidia) salivary glands for the purpose of killing prey or disabling predators and delivered by grooved or hollow fangs. They usually contain enzymes, toxins, and other factors.

The introduction of new genes into cells for the purpose of treating disease by restoring or adding gene expression. Techniques include insertion of retroviral vectors, transfection, homologous recombination, and injection of new genes into the nuclei of single cell embryos. The entire gene therapy process may consist of multiple steps. The new genes may be introduced into proliferating cells in vivo (e.g., bone marrow) or in vitro (e.g., fibroblast cultures) and the modified cells transferred to the site where the gene expression is required. Gene therapy may be particularly useful for treating enzyme deficiency diseases, hemoglobinopathies, and leukemias and may also prove useful in restoring drug sensitivity, particularly for leukemia.

The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm. (Science 1995;270(5237):713,789-91)

A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
