Gene editing-based technologies for beta-hemoglobinopathies treatment
Simple Summary: β-thalassemia syndromes are clinically and genetically heterogeneous blood disorders presented by β-chain deficiency in hemoglobin production. Despite improvements in transfusion practices and chelation ...
Targeted regulation of autophagy using nanoparticles: New insight into cancer therapy
Normal cells depend on autophagy to maintain cellular homeostasis by recycling damaged organelles and misfolded proteins and degrading toxic agents. Similar to apoptosis, targeting autophagy has been under attention in ...
Overcoming doxorubicin resistance in cancer: siRNA-loaded nanoarchitectures for cancer gene therapy
Gene therapy can be used as a cancer therapy by affecting signaling networks participating in the aggressive behavior of tumors. Small interfering RNA (siRNA) is a genetic tool employed for gene silencing. The siRNA molecules ...
