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.
An estimated 245 million people world-wide are visually impaired, and 39 million more are completely blind. Sixty-five percent of these people are over the age of fifty (1).
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.
