Multimodality therapy: Enhancement of melanoma cell death with combination of heat shock protein 90 inhibitor, 17-(Allylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG), and gold nanoparticles in a noninvasive radiofrequency field

, , ,
Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer. Hyperthermia has been used to treat advanced stage melanoma. However, solid tumors often respond minimally to hyperthermic treatment due to the thermo-tolerance induced by chaperons of [...]

Combining gene therapy and nanomedicine to enhance the therapeutic potential of T cells

we have developed a high throughput electroporator (HiTE) to manipulate large numbers (~10^9) of T cells ex vivo for clinical uses. HiTE is designed to electro-transfer RNA species to redirect T-cell specificity and gold nanoparticles [...]
