Objective: Granulocyte colony stimulation factor (G-CSF) is generally used to prevent and cure the neutropenia associated with chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation. In addition to its effects on neutrophil function, G-CSF was found to have the characteristic of modulating the cytokines in the inflammatory response. Then, the question to answer is whether it has any effect on fracture healing and to what extent? In this study, we test the effects of G-CSF on the healing of tibia fracture in a rat model.

Emergence of resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy is a major obstacle for the successful treatment of MM (multiple myeloma). Prednisone, vincristine and melphalan are commonly used chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of MM. In the current study, we examined the presence of possible cross-resistance between these drugs and gamma (gamma) radiation. Prednisone, vincristine and melphalan resistant RPMI-8226 and U-266 MM cells were generated by stepwise increasing concentrations of the drugs. The se...

The effects of double release of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and growth factor 1 (TGF1) from nanoparticles on the growth of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and their differentiation into cartilage cells were studied on PLGA scaffolds. The release was achieved by using nanoparticles of poly(lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) carrying IGF-I and TGF1, respectively. On tissue culture polystyrene (TCPS), TGF-1 released from PNIPAM nanoparticles was found to ...
Effect of MDR modulators verapamil and promethazine on gene expression levels of MDR1 and MRP1 in doxorubicin-resistant MCF-7 cells

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) phenotype. Among the numerous mechanisms of MDR, a prominent one is the increased expression of membrane transporter proteins, the action of which leads to decreased intracellular drug concentration and cytotoxicity of drugs. Among them, P-gp and MRP1, encoded by MDR1 and MRP1 genes, respectively, have been associated with MDR phenotype. Chemical modulators can be used to reverse MDR. These chemicals can either...
Effect of gemcitabine and retinoic acid loaded PAMAM dendrimer-coated magnetic nanoparticles on pancreatic cancer and stellate cell lines

Gemcitabine is an anticancer drug used in the treatment of different cancer types, including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. The maximum tolerated dose in humans is restricted by its side effects on healty cells. Furthermore, the fibrotic stroma produced by the pancreatic stellate cells prevents effective delivery of chemotherapeutic agents providing a safe-haven for the cancer cells. This becomes more of a problem considering the short half-life of this drug. Magnetic nanoparticle-based targeted drug del...
Effects of novel compound derived from vitamin e on prostate cancer cell line
Ergen, Nuri; Severcan, Feride; Department of Biology (2016)
Cancer is a complex disease characterized by uncontrolled cell proliferation, invasion and metastasis. It is known that vitamins having high antioxidant capacity, like vitamin A, C and E, play important roles in adjuvant therapy and as cancer protective agents. Vitamin E is a group of fat soluble antioxidant nutrients consisting of tocopherols and tocotrienols. Various research has been performed on the utility of vitamin E derivatives on cancer treatment. Energy metabolism of cells alters during cancer pro...
