Development of Poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(ε-caprolactone) based Micelles for Tumor Targeted Drug and siRNA DeliveryDownload
The use of nanotechnology has made significant advancements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Polymeric micelles are a relatively new generation of nanocarriers mostly intended for the delivery of hydrophobic drugs. In this thesis, our objective was to develop an optimized polymeric micellar...
Development of a non-viral delivery system for siRNA for treatment of lymphoma
The aim of this work is to develop an effective non-viral carrier and to identify suitable gene targets that would induce apoptosis specifically in lymphoma cells upon down-regulation with short interfering RNA (siRNA). Lymphoma is common in children and young adults, and although survival rate...
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...
Deregulated TNF signaling with elevated or decreased levels of TNF-induced apoptosis causes numerous inflammatory and cancerous diseases. Thus, there is a clear need to identify cellular proteins that regulate cell fate in the presence of TNF. RNA interference technology provides an excellent...
Lipid Modified Polymers for Transfection of Human CRL Fibroblasts, and for siRNA Mediated MDR Reversal in Melanoma Cancer TherapyDownload
Gene delivery for therapeutic purposes is quickly emerging as the best potential treatment option for inherited genetic diseases and cancer. Viral gene carriers have been the choice for this purpose due to their high efficiency, but harmful immunogenic and oncogenic host reactions have limited...
The use of nanotechnology in pharmaceutical development has progressed significantly in recent decades. This rapid advancement is driven by crucial need for improving the performance of present diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, as well as development of a new class of delivery systems for...
Protein silencing by small interfering RNA (siRNA) is a promising treatment strategy for cancer as over-expression of proteins is largely responsible for cancer cells’ infinite proliferation, evasion of cell death and multi-drug resistance. However, siRNAs require a carrier as their biological...
Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Polyethylenimine Mediated Nucleic Acid Complexation with Implications for Non-viral Gene DeliveryDownload
Gene therapy is a promising therapeutic technique that involves delivering nucleic acids into cells. Polycations have evolved into a major category of gene carriers. Polyethylenimine (PEI) is one of the most effective polycationic carriers. Furthermore, modifying PEI with certain lipophilic...
Proliferative Signals Regulate Hemocyte Development and Intestinal Immunity in Drosophila melanogaster.Download
The innate immune system is an ancient line of resistance against intrusive microbial threats. This system integrates cellular, humoral, and barrier defenses to generate a protective immune response. These divisions are indispensable and conserved between Drosophila and mammals. Hemocytes are the...
