Summary of "Gastric environment-stable oral nanocarriers for in situ colorectal cancer therapy."

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a prevalent and fatal cancer. Oral administration provided the potential for in situ treatment of the colorectal cancer. However, drugs couldn't be well-absorbed mainly due to its degradation in the gastric area and poor intestinal permeability. In this study, we synthesized deoxycholic acid and hydroxybutyl decorated chitosan nanoparticles (DAHBC NPs) as oral curcumin (CUR) delivery system for colorectal cancer treatment. DAHBC with lower critical solution temperature (LCST) below 37 °C (27-33 °C) was obtained. DAHBC NPs were correspondingly stable in simulated gastric conditions (pH 1.2, 37 °C), due to the offset of size change between pH-responsive expansion and thermo-responsive shrinkage. In simulated intestinal tract (pH 7.0-7.4, 37 °C), DAHBC NPs exhibited burst release of CUR owing to the onefold effect of thermo-responsive shrinkage. DAHBC27 NPs showed the minimum CUR leakage (~10%) in simulated gastric conditions, because a furthest temperature-sensitive shrinkage caused by the lowest LCST offset the expansion in acid environment. DAHBC27 NPs induced ~10-fold increased (P < 0.05) CUR absorption by paracellular transport pathway, compared to the free CUR. Thus, DAHBC NPs stabilized in the gastric environment may be a promising oral drugs delivery system for effective in situ colorectal cancer therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A proto-oncogene protein and member of the Wnt family of proteins. It is frequently up-regulated in human GASTRIC CANCER and is a tumor marker (TUMOR MARKERS, BIOLOGICAL) of gastric and COLORECTAL CANCER.

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
