Enhanced cytotoxic activity of doxorubicin through the inhibition of autophagy in triple negative breast cancer cell line
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2017)
Background: The outcome of triple negative breast cancer is still poor and requires improvement with better therapy options. Autophagy has recently been shown to play a role in anticancer drug resistance. Therefore, we ...
Folic acid-conjugated cationic Ag2S quantum dots for optical imaging and selective doxorubicin delivery to HeLa cells
(Future Medicine Ltd, 2017)
We aim to develop folic acid ( FA)-conjugated cationic Ag2S near-infrared quantum dots (NIRQDs) for the delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) selectively to folate receptor (FR)-positive cancer cells to achieve enhanced drug ...
Novel 1-(7-ethoxy-1-benzofuran-2-yl) substituted chalcone derivatives: synthesis, characterization and anticancer activity
(Elsevier France-Editions Scientifiques Medicales Elsevier, 2017)
Cancer treatment still requires new compounds to be discovered. Chalcone and its derivatives exhibit anticancer potential in different cancer cells. A new series of benzofuran substituted chalcone derivatives was synthesized ...
Nonapoptotic cell death induced by Hypericum species on cancer cells
Objectives. There are approximately 400 Hypericum species that grow naturally in different geographic originsof the world. Those species have been used in different folk medicines and screened for their biological ...
Combination of histone deacetylase inhibitor with Cu(II) 5,5- diethylbarbiturate complex induces apoptosis in breast cancer stem cells: a promising novel approach
Background: Cancer stem cells (CSC) are subpopulation within the tumor that acts a part in the initiation, progression, recurrence, resistance to drugs and metastasis of cancer. It is well known that epigenetic changes ...
