Two newly synthesized water-soluble conjugates of Paclitaxel with malonodiserinolamide-derivatized [60]fullerene (C60-ser) undergo hydrolysis and release their medical payload under biological conditions. In vivo testing of
one of these compounds in a murine model showed tumor volume reduction similar to the FDA-approved drug Abraxane, but without the associated weight-loss, indicating better tolerance of this new formulation.

Keywords: Fullerene, Paclitaxel, Cancer, Immunoconjugate.

  1. My brother recommended I would possibly like this website. He was once totally right. This post actually made my day. You can not consider just how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thank you!

  2. naturally like your web-site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.

  3. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
