One of the major causes of failure in cancer chemotherapy is multidrug resistance (MDR), where cancer cells become resistant to different types of anticancer drugs. Over-expression of membrane efflux pumps like P-glycoprotein (P-gp), which recognizes different chemotherapeutic agents and...
Delivery of STAT3 inhibitor cucurbitacins to tumor by polymeric nano-carriers : Implications in cancer chemo- and immunotherapyDownload
Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 3 (STAT3), a common oncogenic mediator, is constitutively activated in many types of human cancers and plays a critical role in tumor growth and cancer immune evasion. The focus of this dissertation is the delivery of STAT3 inhibitor cucurbitacins...
In many tumors, persistently-active signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) imparts several oncogenic features such as survival, proliferation, angiogenesis, and immune escape. Therefore, STAT3 targeting in cancer and cancer-exposed dendritic cells (DCs) is important for cancer...
Development of Novel Polymeric Micellar DACHPt for Enhanced Platinum Based Chemotherapy in Colorectal CancerDownload
One of the major limitations of chemotherapy in cancer treatment is the side effects of anti-cancer drugs. This happens due to non-selective distribution of most standard chemotherapies, and their action on cancer and all normal dividing cells. The objective of this project is to develop a novel...
Preliminary validation of a computer-based approach to find new lead molecules targeting the oncogenic Forkhead box M1 transcription factorDownload
The upregulation of the forkhead box M1 (FOXM1) transcription factor is directly correlated with cancer initiation, invasion, and drug resistance. Because the overexpression of FOXM1 is considered an important factor in carcinogenesis, this protein could be a relevant drug target in cancer...
