    Fabrication and evaluation of multiple pDNA-hydroxyapatite particles for transfection to HEK293 cells

    Rie Sasaki, Takayuki Takeshita, Masami Okamoto, Minoru Hirano, Katsunori Kohda
    Aim: This study aimed to assess multiple marker-loaded plasmid DNA (pDNA)-calcium phosphate (CaP) particles (pDNA-CaP) to allow multiple tumor drug delivery for therapy. Despite its widespread use as an in vitro pDNA-CaP transfection, little attention has been paid to multiple delivery systems.... Read more

    Cytotoxic effects of tamoxifen in breast cancer cells

    Firas Hassan, Ghufran Mohammed, Gamal A. El-Hiti, Ahemd Alshanon, Emad Yousif
    Aim: To investigate the cytotoxic effects of tamoxifen on the breast cancer cell line (MCF7). Methods: The cytotoxic effects of tamoxifen on MCF7 cells were investigated using caspase-9 activity and high content screening assays. Apoptosis mechanisms following tamoxifen treatment were also...
