Antitumor activity of Gemcitabine, a nucleoside analogue, has been reported in a variety of human tumors, including breast cancer in both experimental and clinical studies. Conventional chemotherapeutic agents are unspecifically distributed all over the body where they affect both cancerous and normal cells. They cause major systemic toxicities and drug resistance, which also restricts drugs therapeutic efficacy. Recent advances in nanotechnology have explored new targeting strategies for enhancing intra-tumoral drug concentrations while limiting the systemic toxicity and side effects. Controlled release of Gemcitabine within cancer cells could be achieved by PAMAM coated magnetic nanoparticles (DcMNPs) which could be targeted to the tumor tissue.

Nanocrystal Encoded FluorescentMicrobeads for Proteomics AntibodyProfiling and Diagnostics ofAutoimmune Diseases
Sukhanova, Alyona; Susha , Andrei; Bek, Alpan; Mayilo, Sergiy; Rogach , Andrey; Feldmann, Jochen; Oleinikov, Vladimir; Reveil, Brigitte; Donvito, Beatrice; Cohen, Jacques; Nabiev, İgor (2007-01-01)
The first application of nanocrystal (NC)-encoded microbeads to clinical proteomics is demonstrated by multiplexed detection of circulating autoantibodies, markers of systemic sclerosis. Two-color complexes, consisting of NC-encoded, antigen-covered beads, anti-antigen antibody or clinical serum samples, and dye-tagged detecting antibodies, were observed using flow cytometry assays and on the surface of single beads. The results of flow cytometry assays correlated with the ELISA technique and provided clear...
Comparison of GST Isoenzyme Expression in Normal and Neoplastic Breast Tissue: Correlation with Clinical and Prognostic Factors
OĞUZTÜZÜN, SERPİL; İşcan, Mesude; ÖZHAVZALI, MÜZEYYEN; Sak, Serpil Dizbay (2009-01-01)
Glutathione S-transferases in breast tissue play an important role in the susceptibility to the mutagenic effects of chemical carcinogens and in the response of breast tumors to chemotherapy. In this study the immunohistochemical staining characteristics of glutathione S-transferase isoenzymes (alpha, mu, pi, and theta) were investigated in invasive duct carcinomas and in normal breast tissue of 43 patients. The relationships between the expression of the GST isoenzymes and some clinicopathological features...
CAD for detection of microcalcification and classification in mammograms
AKBAY, Cansu; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; GENÇER, Gülay (2014-10-17)
In this study, computer aided diagnosis (CAD) is developed to detect microcalficication cluster which is one of the important radiological findings of breast cancer diagnosis and classificiation. For this purpose, image processing and pattern recognition algorithms are applied on mamographic images. To make microcalcifications more visible wavelet transform and nonsubsampled contourlet transform (NSCT) methods are used for image enhancement. Their performances are compared. 52 features are extracted from th...
Implementation of a fast simulation tool for the analysis of contrast mechanisms in HMMDI and enhancement of the SNR in the experimental set-up
İrgin, Ümit; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri; Top, Can Barış; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-06)
Clinical method for breast tumor detection is Mammography (X-rays), which have limitations and may yield inaccurate results. Alternative novel techniques are required to characterize the breast tissues and extract accurate information for identification of malignancies in the tissue. Harmonic Motion Microwave Doppler Imaging (HMMDI), which enhances hybridizing microwave signals and ultrasound techniques, has been recently proposed for detection of tumors in the tissue. In HMMDI method, the data is a combina...
Radiosensitization induced by zinc-doped hydroxyapatite nanoparticles in breast cancer cells
YEDEKÇİ, FAZLI YAĞIZ; Gedik, Emre; Evis, Zafer; Dogan, Lale; ÖZYİĞİT, GÖKHAN; Gurkaynak, Murat (2021-01-01)
Zinc-doped hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles were synthesized by microwave assisted method and used with ionizing radiation for inhibition of proliferation of breast cancer cells. Zinc-doped HAs were produced in four different compositions in order to determine the best doping rate in terms of physical and biological properties. Nanoparticle characterizations were performed with X-ray diffractometer, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and inductively coupled plasma-mass s...
