Development of novel drug-delivery systems aims to specifically deliver anticancer drugs to tumor tissues and improve the efficiency of chemotherapy, while minimizing side effects of drugs on healthy tissues and organs. However, drug-delivery systems are confronted by membrane barriers and multiple drug resistance in cancer cells. In recent years, the obtained results indicate an important role of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates in apoptosis, drug transport and the process of cellular uptake of nanoparticles via endocytosis. This article discusses the hypothesis of the relationship between cell membrane structure and nanoparticles in cancer cells.

Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major problem in success of cancer chemotherapy on tumor cell growth, limits the prolonged and effective use of chemotherapy. The use of nanomaterial based drug carriers in cancer treatment offers exciting opportunities to enhance delivery of therapeutics to the tumor site (1). This is also known as targeted drug delivery providing differential distribution of drugs to the tumor site while significantly reducing the overall toxicity. Here, we critically discuss the role of th...
CpG oligodeoxynucleotide- loaded PAMAM dendrimer-coated magnetic nanoparticles promote apoptosis in breast cancer cells
Pourianazar, Negar Taghavi; Gündüz, Ufuk (2016-03-01)
One major application of nanotechnology in cancer treatment involves designing nanoparticles to deliver drugs, oligonucleotides, and genes to cancer cells. Nanoparticles should be engineered so that they could target and destroy tumor cells with minimal damage to healthy tissues. This research aims to develop an appropriate and efficient nanocarrier, having the ability of interacting with and delivering CpG-oligodeoxynucleotides (CpG-ODNs) to tumor cells. CpG-ODNs activate Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9), which...

© 2022 Wiley-VCH GmbH.Development of targeted nanoparticles as carriers to deliver photosensitizers to cancer cells is highly beneficial for ensuring the expected therapeutic outcome of photodynamic therapy. Herein, polyacrylic acid (PAA) coated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs), conjugated with endothelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) targeting Cetuximab (Cet) were loaded with a BODIPY-based (BOD-Se-I) photosensitizer (Cet-PAA@SPION/BOD-Se-I) to achieve enhanced and selective photodynami...
GST isoenzymes in matched normal and neoplastic breast tissue
OĞUZTÜZÜN, SERPİL; Abu-Hijleh, A.; ÇOBAN, TÜLAY; Bulbul, D.; KILIÇ, MURAT; İŞCAN, Mümtaz; İşcan, Mesude (AEPress, s.r.o., 2011-01-01)
The potential to metabolize endogenous and exogenous substances may influence breast cancer development and tumor growth. Therefore we investigated GST activity and the protein expression of glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) isoenzymes known to be involved in the metabolism of endogenous and exogenous carcinogens in breast cancer tissue to obtain new information on their possible role in tumor progression.
