Nanoparticle-Based Intracellular Delivery System of Immunomodulatory Agents for Initiation of an Anti-Tumor Immune Response
Fraught with chronic side effects, the current paradigm of cancer therapy includes chemotherapy and radiation. Advancements in nanomedical techniques have led to the emergence of a new field of research, cancer immunotherapy, which is the study of stimulating the human immune system to elicit an anti-tumor response through the proliferation of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) and, the more recently discovered killer dendritic cells.

Group living in primates, as well as other vertebrates, is thought to have evolved to reduce individual predation risk. Primates may have developed differential roles between the sexes to protect the group from
Humans do not make the world’s top 20 fastest runners. We lose our spot to animals like cheetahs and pronghorn antelope. But, do not discount yourself as a top performer; we are actually capable of outrunning cheetahs—as long as the race is longer than 600 yards.
Cholesterol is an essential compound that contributes to a variety of physiological functions integral to human life. Obtained from dietary sources and synthesized within organs such as the liver, cholesterol
serves as a precursor to both fat-soluble vitamins and steroid hormones.
Interest in the philosophy of Biology as an academic discipline has grown in the past three decades, in parallel to the rising prominence of the biological sciences (1).
It gets us out of bed in the morning, it makes us functional in the afternoon, it keeps us awake on the drive home from work, and it is one of the most consumed dietary ingredients throughout the world.
Whether you are on the new SmartChoice20 meal plan or the SmartChoice5 meal plan, eating at an all-you-can-eat buffet several times a week can start to weigh down on you.
We all hear about climate change, species extinction, and impending environmental collapse. We see commercials, books, and films dedicated to inspiring action to save endangered species. However, species preservation is not as simple as human goodwill – investing in saving a species is an economic investment as well.
