Abstract

Nanotechnology may be applied in medicine where the utilization of nanoparticles (≤100 nm) for the delivery and targeting of theranostic agents is at the forefront of projects in cancer nano-science. This study points a novel one step synthesis approach to build up polyethylene glycol capped silver nanoparticles doped with I-131 radionuclide (I-doped Ag-PEG NPs). The formula was prepared with average hydrodynamic size 21 nm, zeta potential - 25 mV, radiolabeling yield 98 ± 0.76%, and showed good in-vitro stability in saline and mice serum. The in-vitro cytotoxicity study of cold Ag-PEG NPs formula as a drug carrier vehicle showed no cytotoxic effect on normal cells (WI-38 cells) at a concentration below 3 μL/10 cells. The in-vivo biodistribution pattern of I-doped Ag-PEG NPs in solid tumor bearing mice showed high radioactivity accumulation in tumor tissues with maximum uptake of 35.43 ± 1.12 and 63.8 ± 1.3% ID/g at 60 and 15 min post intravenous (I.V.) and intratumoral injection (I.T.), respectively. Great potential of T/NT ratios were obtained throughout the experimental time points with maximum ratios 45.23 ± 0.65 and 92.46 ± 1.02 at 60 and 15 min post I.V. and I.T. injection, respectively. Thus, I-doped Ag-PEG NPs formulation could be displayed as a great potential tumor nano-sized theranostic probe.

Background In this study we tested the new, single-use supraglottic airway device; i-gel with a non-inflatable cuff as an effective airway as conventional endotracheal tube. Gas leak was measured and compared with that of cuffed tracheal tube during volume controlled ventilation in elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Methods Sixty patients, \{ASA\} I–II, were randomly selected to the study. Standard anaesthetic technique was used for all patients. The i-gel was then inserted. The lungs were ventilated at three different tidal volumes (6, 8 and 10 ml kg−1) using volume controlled ventilation (VCV). The leak volume was calculated as the difference between the inspired and expired tidal volumes. The leak fraction was also calculated as the leak volume divided by the inspired tidal volume. These observations were recorded with every tidal volume before and after pneumoperitoneum with the i-gel and the conventional tracheal tube. Results Before pneumoperitoneum there was no significant difference in leak fraction between i-gel and tracheal tube at 6 and 8 ml kg−1 tidal volume. Significant differences were found after pneumoperitoneum at 8 and at 10 ml kg−1 before and after pneumoperitoneum. Conclusion We suggest that i-gel can be used as an alternative device to endotracheal tube during \{VCV\} for laparoscopic cholecystectomy provided that peak pressure does not exceed leak pressure.

A randomized multicenter study of the hypoxic radiosensitizer nimorazole concomitant with accelerated radiotherapy in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.", Radiotherapy and oncology : journal of the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, vol. 116, issue 1, pp. 15-20, 2015 Jul. Abstract

PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that radiotherapy (RT) of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) can be improved by hypoxic modification using nimorazole (NIM) in association with accelerated fractionation.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The protocol was activated in March 2012 as an international multicenter randomized trial in patients with HNSCC. Tumors were treated to a dose of 66-70Gy, 33-35 fractions, 6 fractions per week. NIM was administered in a dose of 1.2gperm(2), 90min before the first daily RT fraction. The primary endpoint was loco-regional failure. The trial was closed prematurely by June 2014 due to poor recruitment. An associated quality assurance program was performed to ensure the consistency of RT with the protocol guidelines.

RESULTS: The trial was dimensioned to include 600 patients in 3years, but only 104 patients were randomized between March 2012 and May 2014 due to the inability to involve three major centers and the insufficient recruitment rate from the other participating centers. Twenty patients from two centers had to be excluded from the analysis due to the unavailability of the follow-up data. Among the remaining 84 patients, 82 patients were evaluable (39 and 43 patients in the RT+NIM and the RT-alone arms, respectively). The treatment compliance was good with only six patients not completing the full planned RT course, and 31 patients (79%) out of 39 allocated for NIM, achieving at least 90% of the prescribed drug dose. At the time of evaluation, 40 patients had failed to achieve persistent loco-regional tumor control, and a total of 45 patients had died. The use of NIM improved the loco-regional tumor control with an 18month post-randomization cumulative failure rate of 33% versus 51% in the control arm, yielding a risk difference of 18% (CI -3% to 39%; P=0.10). The corresponding values for overall death was 43% versus 62%, yielding a risk difference of 19% (CI -3% to 42%; P=0.10). Sixteen patients, out of 55 patients analyzed for hypoxic gene expression, were classified as having more hypoxic tumors. Such patients, if treated with RT alone, had a higher loco-regional tumor failure rate as compared to the rest of the patients with known hypoxic status (P=0.05).

CONCLUSION: Although the trial was incomplete and suffered from a small number of patients, the results suggested an improvement in loco-regional tumor control and overall survival in patients with advanced HNSCC given the hypoxic modifier NIM in addition to accelerated fractionation RT. However, the trial also revealed that conducting multicenter and multinational study combining drug and RT in developing countries may suffer from uncontrolled and unsolvable problems.
