RESUMO

Comprehensive analysis of mortality and causes of death (COD) in cancers was of importance to conduct intervention strategies. The current study aimed to investigate the mortality rate and COD among cancers, and to explore the disparities between age. Initially, cancer patients diagnosed between 2010 and 2019 from the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results (SEER) database were extracted. Then, frequencies and percentage of deaths, and mortality rate in different age groups were calculated. Meanwhile, age distribution of different COD across tumor types was illustrated while the standardized mortality ratios (SMR) stratified by age were calculated and visualized. A total of 2,670,403 death records were included and digestive system cancer (688,953 death cases) was the most common primary cancer type. The mortality rate increased by 5.6% annually in total death, 4.0% in cancer-specific death and 10.9% in non-cancer cause. As for cancer-specific death, the age distribution varied among different primary tumor types due to prone age and prognosis of cancer. The top five non-cancer causes in patients older than 50 were cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, other causes, COPD and associated conditions, diabetes as well as Alzheimer. The SMRs of these causes were higher among younger patients and gradually dropped in older age groups. Mortality and COD of cancer patients were heterogeneous in age group due to primary tumor types, prone age and prognosis of cancer. Our study conducted that non-cancer COD was a critical part in clinical practice as well as cancer-specific death. Individualized treatment and clinical intervention should be made after fully considering of the risk factor for death in different diagnosis ages and tumor types.

RESUMO

In this study, we described physico-chemical properties of novel nanoformulation of photosensitizer-pyropheophorbide α 17-diethylene glycol ester (XL) (chlorophyll α derivative), revealing insights into antitumor activity and maintaining quality, meeting the pharmaceutical approach of new nanoformulation design. Our formulation, based on poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles, increased XL solubility and selective tumor-targeted accumulation. In our research, we revealed, for the first time, that XL binding to polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) enhances XL photophysical activity, providing the rationale for PVA application as a stabilizer for nanoformulations. Results of FTIR, DSC, and XRD revealed the physical interactions between XL and excipients, including PVA, indicating that the encapsulation maintained XL binding to PVA. The encapsulated XL exhibited higher photophysical activity compared to non-encapsulated substance, which can be attributed to the influence of residual PVA. Gamma-irradiation led to degradation of XL; however, successful sterilization of the samples was achieved through the filtration. Importantly, the encapsulated and sterilized XL retained cytotoxicity against both 2D and 3D tumor cell models, demonstrating the potential of the formulated NP-XL for photodynamic therapy applications, but lacked the ability to reactivate epigenetically silenced genes. These findings provide valuable insights into the design and characterization of PLGA-based nanoparticles for the encapsulation of photosensitizers.

RESUMO

Insufficient drug accumulation in tumors is still a major concern for using cancer nanotherapeutics. Here, the neutrophil-based delivery of three nanoparticle types-liposomes, PLGA, and magnetite nanoparticles-was assessed both in vitro and in vivo. Confocal microscopy and a flow cytometry analysis demonstrated that all the studied nanoparticles interacted with neutrophils from the peripheral blood of mice with 4T1 mammary adenocarcinoma without a significant impact on neutrophil viability or activation state. Intravital microscopy of the tumor microenvironment showed that the neutrophils did not engulf the liposomes after intravenous administration, but facilitated nanoparticle extravasation in tumors through micro- and macroleakages. PLGA accumulated along the vessel walls in the form of local clusters. Later, PLGA nanoparticle-loaded neutrophils were found to cross the vascular barrier and migrate towards the tumor core. The magnetite nanoparticles extravasated in tumors both via spontaneous macroleakages and on neutrophils. Overall, the specific type of nanoparticles largely determined their behavior in blood vessels and their neutrophil-mediated delivery to the tumor. Since neutrophils are the first to migrate to the site of inflammation, they can increase nanodrug delivery effectiveness for nanomedicine application.

RESUMO

The role of the properties of magnetic nanoparticles in the remote magneto-mechanical actuation of biomolecules under the influence of external magnetic fields is still of particular interest. Here, a specially designed strategy based on the mechanical destruction of short oligonucleotide duplexes is used to demonstrate the effect of magnetic nanoparticles with different sizes (5-99 nm) on the magnitude of the magneto-mechanical actuations in a low-frequency alternating magnetic field. The results show that the mechanical destruction of complementary chains of duplexes, caused by the rotational-vibrational movements of nanoparticles upon exposure to a magnetic field, has a nonmonotonic dependence on the nanoparticle core size. The main hypothesis of this phenomenon is associated with a key role of magneto-dipole interactions between individual nanoparticles, which blocks the movements of nanoparticles in dense clusters. This result will allow fine-tuning of the magnetic nanoparticle properties for addressing specific magneto-mechanical tasks.

RESUMO

New styryl dyes consisting of N-methylpyridine or N-methylquinoline scaffolds were synthesized, and their binding affinities for DNA in cell-free solution were studied. The replacement of heterocyclic residue from the pyridine to quinoline group as well as variation in the phenyl part strongly influenced their binding modes, binding affinities, and spectroscopic responses. Biological experiments showed the low toxicity of the obtained dyes and their applicability as selective dyes for mitochondria in living cells.

RESUMO

In 1994 a new class of prokaryotic compartments was discovered, collectively called "encapsulins" or "nanocompartments". Encapsulin shell protomer proteins self-assemble to form icosahedral structures of various diameters (24-42 nm). Inside of nanocompartments shells, one or several cargo proteins, diverse in their functions, can be encapsulated. In addition, non-native cargo proteins can be loaded into nanocompartments, and shell surfaces can be modified via various compounds, which makes it possible to create targeted drug delivery systems, labels for optical and MRI imaging, and to use encapsulins as bioreactors. This review describes a number of strategies of encapsulins application in various fields of science, including biomedicine and nanobiotechnologies.

RESUMO

Nowadays, magnetoelectric nanomaterials are on their way to finding wide applications in biomedicine for various cancer and neurological disease treatment, which is mainly restricted by their relatively high toxicity and complex synthesis. This study for the first time reports novel magnetoelectric nanocomposites of CoxFe3-xO4-BaTiO3 series with tuned magnetic phase structures, which were synthesized via a two-step chemical approach in polyol media. The magnetic CoxFe3-xO4 phases with x = 0.0, 0.5, and 1.0 were obtained by thermal decomposition in triethylene glycol media. The magnetoelectric nanocomposites were synthesized by the decomposition of barium titanate precursors in the presence of a magnetic phase under solvothermal conditions and subsequent annealing at 700 °C. X-ray diffraction revealed the presence of both spinel and perovskite phases after annealing with average crystallite sizes in the range of 9.0-14.5 nm. Transmission electron microscopy data showed two-phase composite nanostructures consisting of ferrites and barium titanate. The presence of interfacial connections between magnetic and ferroelectric phases was confirmed by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Magnetization data showed expected ferrimagnetic behavior and σs decrease after the nanocomposite formation. Magnetoelectric coefficient measurements after the annealing showed non-linear change with a maximum of 89 mV/cm*Oe with x = 0.5, 74 mV/cm*Oe with x = 0, and a minimum of 50 mV/cm*Oe with x = 0.0 core composition, that corresponds with the coercive force of the nanocomposites: 240 Oe, 89 Oe and 36 Oe, respectively. The obtained nanocomposites show low toxicity in the whole studied concentration range of 25-400 µg/mL on CT-26 cancer cells. The synthesized nanocomposites show low cytotoxicity and high magnetoelectric effects, therefore they can find wide applications in biomedicine.

RESUMO

Systemic transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is a promising approach for the treatment of ischemia-associated disorders, including stroke. However, exact mechanisms underlying its beneficial effects are still debated. In this respect, studies of the transplanted cells distribution and homing are indispensable. We proposed an MRI protocol which allowed us to estimate the dynamic distribution of single superparamagnetic iron oxide labeled MSCs in live ischemic rat brain during intravenous transplantation after the transient middle cerebral artery occlusion. Additionally, we evaluated therapeutic efficacy of cell therapy in this rat stroke model. According to the dynamic MRI data, limited numbers of MSCs accumulated diffusely in the brain vessels starting at the 7th minute from the onset of infusion, reached its maximum by 29 min, and gradually eliminated from cerebral circulation during 24 h. Despite low numbers of cells entering brain blood flow and their short-term engraftment, MSCs transplantation induced long lasting improvement of the neurological deficit, but without acceleration of the stroke volume reduction compared to the control animals during 14 post-transplantation days. Taken together, these findings indicate that MSCs convey their positive action by triggering certain paracrine mechanisms or cell-cell interactions or invoking direct long-lasting effects on brain vessels.

RESUMO

Introducing a new genetically encoded material containing a photoactivatable label as a model cargo protein, based on Myxococcus xanthus (Mx) encapsulin system stably expressed in human 293T cells. Encapsulin from Mx is known to be a protein-based container for a ferritin-like cargo in its shell which could be replaced with an exogenous cargo protein, resulting in a modified encapsulin system. We replaced Mx natural cargo with a foreign photoactivatable mCherry (PAmCherry) fluorescent protein and isolated encapsulins, containing PAmCherry, from 293T cells. Isolated Mx encapsulin shells containing photoactivatable label can be internalized by macrophages, wherein the PAmCherry fluorescent signal remains clearly visible. We believe that a genetically encoded nanocarrier system obtained in this study, can be used as a platform for controllable delivery of protein/peptide therapeutics in vitro.

RESUMO

Efficient screening of photosensitizers (PS) as well as studying their photodynamic activity, especially PS excited in the near-infrared region, require informative in vitro models to adequately reflect the architecture, thickness, and intercellular interactions in tumors. In our study, we used spheroids formed from human colon cancer HCT-116 cells and liver cancer Huh7 cells to assess the phototoxicity of a new PS based on tetracationic derivative of synthetic bacteriochlorin (BC4). We optimized conditions for the irradiation regime based on the kinetics of BC4 accumulation in spheroids and kinetics of spheroid growth. Although PS accumulated more efficiently in HCT-116 cells, characterized by more aggressive growth and high proliferative potential, they were less susceptible to the photodynamic therapy (PDT) compared to the slower growing Huh7 cells. We also showed that 3D models of spheroids were less sensitive to BC4 than conventional 2D cultures with relatively identical kinetics of drug accumulation. Our findings suggest that BC4 is a perspective agent for photodynamic therapy against cancer cells.

RESUMO

The magneto-mechanical approach is a powerful technique used in many different applications in biomedicine, including remote control enzyme activity, cell receptors, cancer-selective treatments, mechanically-activated drug releases, etc. This approach is based on the use of a combination of magnetic nanoparticles and external magnetic fields that have led to the movement of such nanoparticles with torques and forces (enough to change the conformation of biomolecules or even break weak chemical bonds). However, despite many theoretical and experimental works on this topic, it is difficult to predict the magneto-mechanical effects in each particular case, while the important results are scattered and often cannot be translated to other experiments. The main reason is that the magneto-mechanical effect is extremely sensitive to changes in any parameter of magnetic nanoparticles and the environment and changes in the parameters of the applied magnetic field. Thus, in this review, we (1) summarize and propose a simplified theoretical explanation of the main factors affecting the efficiency of the magneto-mechanical approach; (2) discuss the nature of the MNP-mediated mechanical forces and their order of magnitude; (3) show some of the main applications of the magneto-mechanical approach in the control over the properties of biological systems.

RESUMO

Hepatotoxicity remains an as yet unsolved problem for adenovirus (Ad) cancer therapy. The toxic effects originate both from rapid Kupffer cell (KCs) death (early phase) and hepatocyte transduction (late phase). Several host factors and capsid components are known to contribute to hepatotoxicity, however, the complex interplay between Ad and liver cells is not fully understood. Here, by using intravital microscopy, we aimed to follow the infection and immune response in mouse liver from the first minutes up to 72 h post intravenous injection of three Ads carrying delta-24 modification (Ad5-RGD, Ad5/3, and Ad5/35). At 15-30 min following the infusion of Ad5-RGD and Ad5/3 (but not Ad5/35), the virus-bound macrophages demonstrated signs of zeiosis: the formation of long-extended protrusions and dynamic membrane blebbing with the virus release into the blood in the membrane-associated vesicles. Although real-time imaging revealed interactions between the neutrophils and virus-bound KCs within minutes after treatment, and long-term contacts of CD8+ T cells with transduced hepatocytes at 24-72 h, depletion of neutrophils and CD8+ T cells affected neither rate nor dynamics of liver infection. Ad5-RGD failed to complete replicative cycle in hepatocytes, and transduced cells remained impermeable for propidium iodide, with a small fraction undergoing spontaneous apoptosis. In Ad5-RGD-immune mice, the virus neither killed KCs nor transduced hepatocytes, while in the setting of hepatic regeneration, Ad5-RGD enhanced liver transduction. The clinical and biochemical signs of hepatotoxicity correlated well with KC death, but not hepatocyte transduction. Real-time in vivo tracking for dynamic interactions between virus and host cells provides a better understanding of mechanisms underlying Ad-related hepatotoxicity.

RESUMO

We report herein the design, synthesis, and biological investigation of a series of novel Pt(IV) prodrugs with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs naproxen, diclofenac, and flurbiprofen, as well as these with stearic acid in the axial position. Six Pt(IV) prodrugs 5-10 were designed, which showed superior antiproliferative activity compared to cisplatin as well as an ability to overcome tumor cell line resistance to cisplatin. By tuning the drug lipophilicity via variation of the axial ligands, the most potent Pt(IV) prodrug 7 was obtained, with an enhanced cellular accumulation of up to 153-fold that of cisplatin and nanomolar cytotoxicity both in 2D and 3D cell cultures. Pt2+ species were detected at different depths of MCF-7 spheroids after incubation with Pt(IV) prodrugs using a Pt-coated carbon nanoelectrode. Cisplatin accumulation in vivo in the murine mammary EMT6 tumor tissue of BALB/c mice after Pt(IV) prodrug injection was proved electrochemically as well. The drug tolerance study on BALB/c mice showed good tolerance of 7 in doses up to 8 mg/kg.

RESUMO

Two bis(styryl) dyes, varying in type of spacer between two mono(styryl) units, were tested for interactions with ct-DNA or cl-RNA. Both compounds showed strong affinity toward ds-DNA/ss-RNA, the binding mode of the interaction is shifting between DNA groove binding to RNA intercalation. Consequently, interaction with DNA shows a stronger flare-up of fluorescence (151 times for dye 1 and 118 times for dye 2) than when binding with RNA (23 times and 36 times correspondingly). The presence of energy transfer in the bis(styryl) system increases the Stokes shift of the dye, so when irradiating the system in the region of 370-380 nm, fluorescence is detected at 610-620 nm. The biological experiments showed that the efficient intracellular fluorescence quench was observed in the DNase digest test suggested that dyes can be applied by recognition of DNA in the presence of RNA molecules.

RESUMO

According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common oncological disease worldwide. There are multiple animal models for different types of breast carcinoma, allowing the research of tumor growth, metastasis, and angiogenesis. When studying these processes, it is crucial to visualize cancer cells for a prolonged time via a non-invasive method, for example, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this study, we establish a new genetically encoded material based on Quasibacillus thermotolerans (Q.thermotolerans, Qt) encapsulin, stably expressed in mouse 4T1 breast carcinoma cells. The label consists of a protein shell containing an enzyme called ferroxidase. When adding Fe2+, a ferroxidase oxidizes Fe2+ to Fe3+, followed by iron oxide nanoparticles formation. Additionally, genes encoding mZip14 metal transporter, enhancing the iron transport, were inserted into the cells via lentiviral transduction. The expression of transgenic sequences does not affect cell viability, and the presence of magnetic nanoparticles formed inside encapsulins results in an increase in T2 relaxivity.

RESUMO

The problem of reducing the side effects associated with drug distribution throughout the body in the treatment of various kidney diseases can be solved by effective targeted drug delivery. The method described herein involves injection of a drug encapsulated in polyelectrolyte capsules to achieve prolonged local release and long-term capillary retention of several hours while these capsules are administered via the renal artery. The proposed method does not imply disruption (puncture) of the renal artery or aorta and is suitable for long-term chronic experiments on mice. In this study, we compared how capsule size and dosage affect the target kidney blood flow. It has been established that an increase in the diameter of microcapsules by 29% (from 3.1 to 4.0 µm) requires a decrease in their concentration by at least 50% with the same suspension volume. The photoacoustic method, along with laser speckle contrast imaging, was shown to be useful for monitoring blood flow and selecting a safe dose. Capsules contribute to a longer retention of a macromolecular substance in the target kidney compared to its free form due to mechanical retention in capillaries and slow impregnation into surrounding tissues during the first 1-3 h, which was shown by fluorescence tomography and microscopy. At the same time, the ability of capillaries to perform almost complete "self-cleaning" from capsular shells during the first 12 h leads to the preservation of organ tissues in a normal state. The proposed strategy, which combines endovascular surgery and the injection of polymer microcapsules containing the active substance, can be successfully used to treat a wide range of nephropathies.

RESUMO

Intra-arterial (IA) mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) transplantation providing targeted cell delivery to brain tissue is a promising approach to the treatment of neurological disorders, including stroke. Factors determining cell distribution after IA administration have not been fully elucidated. Their decoding may contribute to the improvement of a transplantation technique and facilitate translation of stroke cell therapy into clinical practice. The goal of this work was to quantitatively assess the impact of brain tissue perfusion on the distribution of IA transplanted MSCs in rat brains. We performed a selective MR-perfusion study with bolus IA injection of gadolinium-based contrast agent and subsequent IA transplantation of MSCs in intact rats and rats with experimental stroke and evaluated the correlation between different perfusion parameters and cell distribution estimated by susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI) immediately after cell transplantation. The obtained results revealed a certain correlation between the distribution of IA transplanted MSCs and brain perfusion in both intact rats and rats with experimental stroke with the coefficient of determination up to 30%. It can be concluded that the distribution of MSCs after IA injection can be partially predicted based on cerebral perfusion data, but other factors requiring further investigation also have a significant impact on the fate of transplanted cells.

RESUMO

Gold-containing nanoparticles are proven to be an effective radiosensitizer in the radiotherapy of tumors. Reliable imaging of nanoparticles in a tumor and surrounding normal tissues is crucial both for diagnostics and for nanoparticle application as radiosensitizers. The Fe3O4 core was introduced into gold nanoparticles to form a core/shell structure suitable for MRI imaging. The aim of this study was to assess the in vivo bimodal CT and MRI enhancement ability of novel core/shell Fe3O4@Au theranostic nanoparticles. Core/shell Fe3O4@Au nanoparticles were synthesized and coated with PEG and glucose. C57Bl/6 mice bearing Ca755 mammary adenocarcinoma tumors received intravenous injections of the nanoparticles. CT and MRI were performed at several timepoints between 5 and 102 min, and on day 17 post-injection. Core/shell Fe3O4@Au nanoparticles provided significant enhancement of the tumor and tumor blood vessels. Nanoparticles also accumulated in the liver and spleen and were retained in these organs for 17 days. Mice did not show any signs of toxicity over the study duration. These results indicate that theranostic bimodal Fe3O4@Au nanoparticles are non-toxic and serve as effective contrast agents both for CT and MRI diagnostics. These nanoparticles have potential for future biomedical applications in cancer diagnostics and beyond.

RESUMO

In this work, complex studies of the structure and magnetic properties of SrFe12-xInxO19 powders obtained by the mechanochemical and citrate methods were carried out. The solubility of In in strontium hexaferrite SrFe12O19 at 1200 °C was determined. The structure and properties of the powders were studied using X-ray diffraction analysis, Mössbauer spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Measurements of magnetic properties in magnetic fields up to 1600 kA/m were also performed. Additionally, the hyperthermia effect was investigated. The possibility of controlling the coercivity of the samples in the range from 188.9 kA/m to 22.3 kA/m and saturation magnetization from 63.5 A·m2/kg to 44.2 A·m2/kg with an increase in the degree of In doping was also demonstrated. Investigation of the magnetic hyperthermia of the samples was carried out by temperature measurement with an IR camera when they were introduced into alternating magnetic fields of various frequencies (144, 261 and 508 kHz) and amplitudes (between 11.96 and 19.94 kA/m). According to the study result, there was detected the heating of the SrFe12-xInxO19 sample (x = 1.7). The highest values of magnetic hyperthermia of the sample were observed in a 19.94 kA/m magnetic field and a frequency of 261 kHz. At a concentration of 56.67 g/L, the sample was heated from 23 to 41 °C within 2 min. The parameters SLP (specific loss power) and ILP (intrinsic loss power) were calculated.
