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 can generate a signal cascade for cell death. In our study, we utilized three-layer magnetic nanoparticles composed of a Fe3O4 magnetic core, an aminosilane (APTS) interlayer and a cationic poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimer. This will be a novel targeted delivery system to enhance the accumulation of CpG-ODN molecules in tumor cells. The validation of CpG-ODN binding to DcMNPs was performed using agarose gel electrophoresis, UV-spectrophotometer, XPS analyses. Cytotoxicity of conjugates was assessed in MDA-MB231 and SKBR3 cancer cells based on cell viability by XTT assay and flow cytometric analysis. Our results indicated that the synthesized DcMNPs having high positive charges on their surface could attach to CpG-ODN molecules via electrostatic means. These nanoparticles with the average sizes of 40 +/- 10 nm bind to CpG-ODN molecules efficiently and induce cell death in MDA-MB231 and SKBR3 tumor cells and could be considered a suitable targeted delivery system for CpG-ODN in biomedical applications. The magnetic core of these nanoparticles represents a promising option for selective drug targeting as they can be concentrated and held in position by means of an external magnetic field.

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.
INVESTIGATION AND COMPARISON OF THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS OF PALBOCICLIB-LOADED MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES ON 2D, 3D AND EX-VIVO BREAST CANCER MODELS

The development of new tissue culture models is needed in cancer research and personalized medicine to better predict patients' responses to treatment. Using live tumor cells as a testing platform for drug development and identifying optimal therapy is a promising strategy. We described a new tissue culture approach that combines a microfluidic chip with the micro-dissected breast cancer tumor slices. The tumors from MDA-MB-231, SKBR-3, and MCF-7 cell lines were created in CD1 nude mice cultured in this mic...

© 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...
Tailoring magnetic PLGA nanoparticles suitable for doxorubicin delivery

One of the main problems of current cancer chemotherapy is the lack of selectivity of anti-cancer drugs to tumor cells, which leads to systemic toxicity and adverse side effects. In order to overcome these limitations, researches on controlled drug delivery systems have gained much attention. Nanoscale-based drug delivery systems provide tumor targeting. Among many types of nanocarriers, superparamagnetic nanoparticles with their biocompatible polymer coatings can be targeted to an intented site by an exter...
