Abstract Bone is the most common organ affected by metastatic breast cancer. Targeting delivery of drugs to bone may not only enhance the treatment efficacy, but also reduce the quantity of drug administered. In order to increase the distribution of paclitaxel (PTX) in bone, herein, a novel bone metastasis-targeted glutamic hexapeptide-folic acid (Glu6-FA) derivative was designed and synthesized as liposome ligand to deliver PTX to bone metastasis effectively. The liposomes were prepared by thin...

Abstract Parkinson’s disease is caused due to free radical generation in dopamine neurons leading to oxidative stress induced damage. The aim of this work was to ameliorate the free radical induced oxidative stress in rats by using TPGS (Tocopheryl polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate) loaded rutin nanoemulsion after oral administration. For this purpose, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics studies were performed in albino wistar rats. Various behavioural tests (photoactometer test, rota rod, aki...
Abstract Most drugs besides their intended activity, express undesired side effects, including those with the engagement of cell membrane. Previously, such undesired nonspecific effects on the membrane have been shown for a number of widely used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In this paper, we study the mechanism of interaction between moxifloxacin (Mox), antibacterial drug of broad specificity, with lipid bilayer of the liposomes of various compositions as a model of cell membrane using ...
Abstract The signaling lipids phosphatidic acid (PA) and diacylglycerol pyrophosphate (DGPP) are involved in regulating the stress response in plants. PA and DGPP are anionic lipids consisting of a negatively charged phosphomonoester or pyrophosphate group attached to diacylglycerol, respectively. Changes in the pH modulate the protonation of their head groups modifying the interaction with other effectors. Here, we examine in a controlled system how the presence of Ca2+ modulates the surface or...

Abstract When considering dermal administration of cosmeceuticals and/or drugs, the stratum corneum layer of the skin, has a barrier function that limits the penetration of active substances to the targeted skin tissues. Solid lipid nanoparticles/SLNs are colloidal carrier systems, which show superiority in dermal administration of cosmeceuticals/drugs. This superiority results from the ability of the SLNs to penetrate the skin layers easily. However, the main problem in dermal administration of...
Abstract Numerous nanotechnological approaches have been widely practiced to improve the bioavailability of less aqueous soluble drugs; phospholipid based vesicles (liposomes) being the most widely applied drug delivery system. However; due to stability issues, large scale production limitations, sterilization and long term storage problems; non-ionic surfactant based vesicles (niosomes) are considered their excellent counterparts. Niosomes are vesicles of non-ionic surfactants having the abilit...
Abstract Biological membranes play key roles in cell life, but their intrinsic complexity motivated the study and development of artificial lipid membranes with the primary aim to reconstitute and understand the natural functions in vitro. Porous-supported lipid membrane (pSLM) has emerged as a flexible platform for studying the surface chemistry of the cell due to their high stability and fluidity, and their ability to study the transmembrane process of the molecules. In this review, the pSLM, ...

Anti-tumour lipids are synthetic analogues of lysophosphatidylcholine. These drugs are both cytotoxic and cytostatic, and more interestingly, exert these effects preferentially in tumour cells. While the exact mechanism of action isn't fully elucidated, these drugs appear to preferentially partition into rigid lipid domains in cell membranes. Upon insertion, the compounds alter membrane domain organization, disrupt normal signal transduction, and cause cell death. Recently, it has been reported ...

Abstract In this work, a novel molecularly imprinted electrochemical sensor (MIES) has been fabricated based on electropolymerization of a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) onto a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with gold-palladium alloy nanoparticles (AuPd NPs)/polydopamine film (PDA)/multiwalled carbon nanotubes-chitosan-ionic liquid (MWCNTs-CS-IL) for voltammetric and impedimetric determination of cholestanol (CHO). Modifications applied to the bare GCE formed an excellent biocompati...

Abstract Trastuzumab (Tmab), an antibody for breast cancer, was incorporated in Langmuir monolayers with different lipidic compositions to investigate the drug action in lipidic interfaces of pharmaceutical interest. Tmab caused all lipid films to expand as confirmed with by surface pressure-area isotherm, proving its incorporation. It also affected the compressional and structural properties as observed by in-plane elasticity curves and polarization modulation reflection-absorption infrared spe...
