[ 1 ] - Comparative proteomics study of proteins involved in induction of higher rates of cell death in mitoxantrone-resistant breast cancer cells MCF-7/MX exposed to TNF-α
Objective(s): Resistance to medications is one of the main complications in chemotherapy of cancer. It has been shown that some multidrug resistant cancer cells indicate more sensitivity against cytotoxic effects of TNF-α compared to their parental cells. Our previous findings indicated vulnerability of the mitoxantrone-resistant breast cancer cells MCF-7/MX to cell de...
[ 2 ] - Fabrication and Structural, Mechanical, and Biological Characterization of Vancomycin-Loaded Chitosan-Hydroxyapatite-Gelatin Beads for Local Treatment of Osteomyelitis
Background and purpose: Topical antibiotic medication is an alternative method in treatment of local infections, especially osteomyelitis. Currently several biomaterials are used for this purpose. The present study focused on the fabrication and characterization of chitosan and Vancomycin (VCM)-loaded chitosan (CS)-hydroxyapatite (HA)-gelatin (G) bead in treatment of osteomyelitis. Materials ...
