6-Thioguanine loaded magnetic microspheres as a new drug delivery system to cancer patients

Magnetic microspheres of 6-thioguanine were prepared by continuous solvent evaporation technique. An attempt was made to target the magnetic microspheres to the cancerous site. Poly lactic acid-polyethylene glycol copolyester (PLA-co-PEG) was used as a polymer. Microspheres were characterized in terms of percentage practical yield, micromeritic properties, particle size, swelling kinetics, magnetic responsiveness,...

Effect of date palm pollen on serum testosterone and intra-testicular environment in male albino rats

Date palm pollen (DPP) is suggested to increase the concentration of serum testosterone, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) in rats. Intra-testicular testosterone (ITT) is thought to play a key role in the control of spermatogenesis but is rarely measured. We therefore planned this study to examine its effect on intra-testicular testosterone levels and serum testosterone in male albino rats....
