Viruses, Genes, and Cancer (2017) (PDF) Eric Hunter

  Basic Information: Year: 2017 Page Number: 221 File Type: PDF File Size: 5.35 MB Authors/ Editiors: Eric Hunter Description: This volume focuses on virus-host cell interactions, cellular genes acquired or modulated by viruses, the pathological effects of these interactions, and therapeutic interventions. Several chapters specifically address the role of viruses and genes – such as oncogenes, proto-oncogenes, or tumor suppressor genes – in the etiology of human cancer. Oncogenic signaling by PI3 kinase, mTOR, Akt, or the major cancer drivers MYC and RAF, and the role of tumor suppressors like p53,...

Nanoparticles in Lung Cancer Therapy – Recent Trends (2015) (PDF) Bandyopadhyay

  Basic Information: Year: 2015 Page Number: 65 File Type: PDF File Size: 4.42 MB Authors/ Editiors: Bandyopadhyay Description: This brief provides an insight into the present scenario of the role of nanotechnology in the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer at an early stage. Currently, lung cancer is the subject of major concern owing to the very high mortality rate throughout the world. Most of the conventional treatment methods such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc., fail to prolong life of the patients. Incidents of recurrence are also very common in case...

Nanoparticles in the Lung: Environmental Exposure and Drug Delivery (2015) (PDF) Akira Tsuda

  Basic Information: Year: 2015 Page Number: 403 File Type: PDF File Size: 54.93 MB Authors/ Editiors: Akira Tsuda Description: Nanoparticles have a physical dimension comparable to the size of molecular structures on the cell surface. Therefore, nanoparticles, compared to larger (e.g., micrometer) particles, are considered to behave differently when they interact with cells. Nanoparticles in the Lung: Environmental Exposure and Drug Delivery provides a better understanding of how inhaled nanoparticles behave in the human lungs and body. Featuring contributions from renowned subject-matter experts, this authoritative text describes the sequence of events that...

Inflammation and Lung Cancer (2015) (PDF) Dubinett, Steven M.

  Basic Information: Year: 2015 Page Number: 212 File Type: PDF File Size: 2.84 MB Authors/ Editiors: Dubinett, Steven M. Description: In recent years there have been various discoveries connecting inflammation and lung cancer and clearly there is growing interest in this area of cancer research. The link between unresolved inflammation and cancer has been well established with estimates that 15% of cancer deaths are inflammation‐related. Evidence for this link includes the following: a) some inflammatory diseases are associated with increased risk of cancer development; b) inflammatory mediators are present surrounding and...
