The present studies were designed to develop a microemulsion (ME) formulation of Amphotericin B (Amp B) for the treatment of invasive fungal infections. The oil phase was selected on the basis of drug solubility whereas the surfactant and co-surfactant were screened and selected on the basis of their oil solubilizing capacity as well as their effic...
Article
The vast majority of pathogens enter the human body via the mucosal surfaces of the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and urogenital tracts, where they initiate mucosal infections that lead to systemic infections. Despite strong evidence that a good mucosal immune response can effectively prevent systemic infection too, only a few mucosal vaccines are...
Article
Introduction: Over the past decades, proteins have emerged as versatile carriers for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and many more diseases. Proteins have gained considerable attention in formulation of several delivery systems for anticancer drugs due to their nontoxic, non-immunogenic, biocompatible and bio...
Article
The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a cell-surface receptor belonging to ErbB family of tyrosine kinase and it plays a vital role in the regulation of cell proliferation, survival and differentiation. However; EGFR is aberrantly activated by various mechanisms like receptor overexpression, mutation, ligand-dependent receptor dimerization...

RNA interference (RNAi) is a wondrous phenomenon that silences the expression of targeted genes via distinct messenger RNA degradation pathways. It has the potential as a therapeutic agent for variety of diseases, including viral infections, cancer, and immune diseases. RNAi mainly conducts gene regulation by 3 ways: microRNA, short hairpin RNA, an...
Article
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease of the pulmonary vascular system, which may lead to right-heart failure or early death in the absence of effective treatment. The current therapy for PAH mainly includes phosphodiesterase inhibitors, prostanoids and endothelin receptor antagonists. These, however, have adverse effects w...
Article
siRNA inhibits protein expression by degrading complementary mRNA sequence and hence, it is widely applicable for the treatment of various diseases where single or multiple gene knock down is necessary. Due to the severity and lethality of pulmonary diseases, siRNA has been focused for improved health in these diseases. Pulmonary accumulation of si...
Chapter
This chapter focuses on the delivery of DNA by various physical methods such as electroporation (EP), sonoporation, microinjection, particle bombardment (gene gun), and hydrodynamic injection with the application of external physical force (pressure, sound, shock wave, and electric pulses for efficient gene transfer inside organs and cells. The cha...
Chapter
This chapter focuses on protein and peptide delivery through the respiratory pathway. In pulmonary delivery of peptides and proteins, particle deposition and absorption are influenced by the aerodynamic size of the inhaled particles, resistance to airflow, dissolution, partition and diffusion of drug particles in respiratory tract fluids, and stabi...
Article
Safe and efficacious gene delivery requires a suitable vector. The role of viral vectors in gene delivery is primary due to their function in the delivery of genetic material into host cells. However, the major problem in the use of viral vectors in gene therapy is immunogenic reaction risks and short-lived expression, which is of utmost importance...
Article
This chapter outlines the progress made to meet delivery challenges and the clinical applications of antisense technology and highlights the limitations of antisense agents in therapeutics. Antisense technology presents an opportunity to manipulate gene expression within cells to treat an endless number of diseases and is a powerful tool for studyi...
Article
Gene therapy is a clinical therapeutic procedure in which genes are intentionally introduced into human somatic cells for turning on or restoring a gene function (gain of function) to produce a therapeutic protein with the desired action. Successful gene therapy requires a convenient and patient-acceptable route of gene administration, control over...
Article
Gene therapy is a powerful tool for the prevention and cure of diseases as it aims to treat the cause rather than the symptoms of the diseases. Gene therapy is defined as the correction of dysfunctional or deleted genes by supplying the lacking component as a means to permanently treat or reverse diseases. There are a number of human diseases, both...
Article
This chapter provides a general overview of proteomics, and its importance in studying the role of proteins in a biological system. Proteomics involves the large-scale study of proteins, their structure, and their physiological role or functions. Proteins are quintessential cellular components or biomolecules in any living organism. Proteomic studi...
