Known in less than half a century, borreliosis, or Lyme disease, is a zoonosis caused by the tick bite. It is the most common vector disease in Europe and the United States. Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the bacterium in question, is fitted with a "cunning device" that allows it to trick the immune system and implant the infection chronically. It causes multi-system tissue damage mediated by the inflammatory response of the host. Renal involvement is rarely reported and is better known in dogs as Lyme nephritis...

This study was performed on the derived fractions [chloroform (FT-C), ethyl acetate (FT-E) and n-butanol (FT-B)] of the 70% ethanol extract prepared from Frankenia thymifolia, endemic to North Africa. The fractions showed high total phenolic and flavonoid contents particularly FT-E. These results agreed with their antioxidant effects. Indeed, all the fractions were able to scavenge 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical, with a better power of FT-E. These results were supported by the inhibition of β-carotene oxidation assay...

BACKGROUND: Anti-amyloid β (Aβ) immunotherapy represents a major area of drug development for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, Aβ peptide adopts multiple conformations and the pathological forms to be specifically targeted have not been identified. Aβ immunotherapy-related vasogenic edema has also been severely dose limiting for antibodies with effector functions binding vascular amyloid such as bapineuzumab. These two factors might have contributed to the limited efficacy demonstrated so far in clinical studies...

In 2013, the European Medicines Agency authorized a new pharmaceutical formulation of the trastuzumab for breast cancer treatment. The latter allows a sub-cutaneous injection that reduces significantly the injection time and permits an administration at home. This study aims to assess the experience of patients treated by trastuzumab subcutaneously at home in 2016, and the experience of the nurses who performed these injections. In 2017, a retrospective survey by phone calls could gather the impressions from 84 patients on their treatment...

Polygonal-shaped about 75 nm sized and highly crystallized Eu3+ -doped β-NaYF4 particles were directly prepared under mild conditions using the polyol process. A set of operating parameters were optimized for such a purpose. A conventional heating under reflux for 30 min of a mixture of Y(III) and Eu(III) acetate, ammonium fluoride, sodium hydroxide and oleic acid (OA) dissolved in ethyleneglycol offered a pertinent material processing route if a large excess of NH4 F and an enough amount of OA were used...

Mitochondrial dysfunction is linked to a variety of human illnesses, but selective delivery of therapeutics into the mitochondrion has been challenging. We report herein a family of amphipathic cell-penetrating motifs (CPMs) consisting of four guanidinium groups and one or two aromatic hydrophobic groups (e.g., naphthalene) assembled through a central scaffold (e.g., a benzene ring). The CPMs and CPM-cargo conjugates efficiently enter the interior of cultured mammalian cells and are specifically localized into the mitochondrial matrix, as revealed by high-resolution confocal microscopy...

Novel nanoscale drug delivery biomaterials are of great importance for the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. We have developed a new pegylated squalene (SQ-PEG) derivative with self-assembly properties. Supramolecular assembly with a lipophilic photosensitizer pyropheophorbide-a (Ppa) by nanoprecipitation gave nanoconstructs SQ-PEG:Ppa with an average size of 200 nm in diameter and a drug loading of 18% (w/w). The composite material demonstrates nanoscale optical properties by tight packing of Ppa within Sq-PEG:Ppa resulting in 99...

BACKGROUND: Metastatic tumor cells have acidic extracellular pH and differential electrochemical H+ gradients generated across their cell membranes by V-type H+ -ATPases. This study shows that inhibition of the V-ATPases by the plant-derived monoterpene Myrtenal results in tumor cell death and decreased metastatic dissemination in mice. METHODS: The Myrtenal anticancer toxicity was evaluated in vitro using murine (B16F0 and B16F10) and human (SkMel-5) melanoma cell lines, and in in vivo mouse metastatic dissemination model...

Oleaeuropaea and Ficuscarica are widely used in traditional medicine for the treatment of cancer. Therefore, it is of interest to develop a QSAR model for screening proteasome inhibitors from plant source. Hence, a QSAR model was developed using multiple linear regressions; partial least squares regression and principal component regression methods. Results of QSAR modeling and docking demonstrate that compounds derived from both plants have great potentiality to be proteasome inhibitors. The developed QSAR model highlights a strong structure-effect relationship...

BACKGROUND: The molecular pathways involved in the transition from uterine quiescence to overt labour are mapped and form the currently established pharmacological targets for both the induction and inhibition of human labour. However, both spontaneous premature labour and functional dystocia occur and are difficult to treat adequately. The identification of upstream regulators involved in the onset and orchestration of labour pathways is essential to develop additional therapies that will contribute to the regulation of the timing of birth...
