Abstract Sepsis is an acute systemic inflammatory disease triggered by bacterial infection leading organ dysfunctions that macrophages are responsible for major triggering of systemic inflammation. Treatment options are limited to antibiotics and drugs to manage the symptoms of sepsis, but there are currently no molecular-targeted therapies. Here, we identified a novel macrophage-preferable delivery peptide, C10, which we conjugated to truncated domains of NLRX1 (leucine-rich repeat region (LRR)...

ABSTRACT Insufficient drug accumulation and chemoresistance remain two major challenges in cancer chemotherapy. Herein, we designed a furin-responsive aggregated nanoplatform loaded with doxorubicin (DOX) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) (AuNPs-D&H-R&C) to combine chemotherapy, autophagy inhibition and macrophage polarization. AuNPs-D&H-R&C could passively target breast tumor via enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect after systemic administration and further aggregate together triggered b...

Abstract Cancer cells differ from normal cells in several important features like anchorage independence, Warburg effect and mechanosensing. Further, in recent studies, they respond aberrantly to external mechanical distortion. Consistent with altered mechano-responsiveness, we find that cyclic stretching of tumor cells from many different tissues reduces growth rate and causes apoptosis on soft surfaces. Surprisingly, normal cells behave similarly when transformed by depletion of the rigidity s...

Abstract Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), such as propionic and butyric acids have been touted as potential therapeutic interventions that can ameliorate diabetic pathogenesis. However, SCFAs are low-molecular-weight (LMW) compounds that have limited clinical use due to unfavorable pharmacokinetics, off-target effects, poor palatability and unpleasant odor. Hence, to improve the therapeutic utilization of SCFAs, the enzyme metabolizable block copolymers, [poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(vinyl ester...

ABSTRACT Bone loss associated with fracture nonunion, revision total joint arthroplasty (TJA), and pseudoarthrosis of the spine presents a challenging clinical scenario for the orthopaedic surgeon. Current treatment options including autograft, allograft, bone graft substitutes, and bone transport techniques are associated with significant morbidity, high costs, and prolonged treatment regimens. Unfortunately, these treatment strategies have proven insufficient to safely and consistently heal bo...

Abstract The development of novel radiosensitizer with high selectivity and controllability is highly desirable. CO gas could cause damage to mitochondria and thus enhance RT effect. Controlled delivery of CO in tumor is important both to achieve high-efficiency of CO gas therapy and to decrease the risk of CO poisoning. In this study, manganese carbonyl (MnCO) loaded exosome nano-vesicles (MMV) to overcome this conundrum for tumor therapy is developed. After administration, MMV showed its admir...

Abstract Different from chemical (small molecular inhibitor) and biological (monoclonal antibody) drugs, herein, based on angiogenesis-related neuropilin-1 (NRP-1), we develop a biomimetic superstructure drug, i.e. an antibody-like peptidic network (ALPN) to achieve the high-efficient treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). The ALPN in nanoparticulated formulation (ALPN-NPS) can bind NRP-1 through targeting unit and form fibrous peptidic networks trapping NRP-1 on the surface of endothe...

Abstract The modification of targeting ligands on nanoparticles (NPs) is anticipated to enhance the delivery of therapeutics to diseased tissues. However, once exposed to the blood stream, NPs can immediately adsorb proteins to form the “protein corona,” which may greatly hinder the targeting ligand from binding to its receptor. For brain-targeting delivery, nanotherapeutics must traverse the blood–brain barrier (BBB) to enter the brain parenchyma and then target the diseased cells. However, it ...

Abstract The increasing number of infections caused by multi-drug resistance (MDR) bacteria is an omen of a new global challenge. As one of the countermeasures under development, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) and AMP mimics have emerged as a new family of antimicrobial agents with high potential, due to their low resistance generation rate and effectiveness against MDR bacterial strains resulted from their membrane-disrupting mechanism of action. However, most reported AMPs and AMP mimics have f...
