Poly(vinyl alcohol) boosting therapeutic potential of p-boronophenylalanine in neutron capture therapy by modulating metabolism

In the current clinical boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), p-boronophenylalanine (BPA) has been the most powerful drug owing to its ability to accumulate selectively within cancers through cancer-related amino acid transporters including LAT1. However, the therapeutic success of BPA has been sometimes compromised by its unfavorable efflux from cytosol due to their antiport mechanism. Here, we report that poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) can form complexes with BPA through reversible boronate esters in aqueous solution, and the complex termed PVA-BPA can be internalized into cancer cells through LAT1-mediated endocytosis, thereby enhancing cellular uptake and slowing the untoward efflux. In in vivo study, compared with clinically used fructose-BPA complexes, PVA-BPA exhibited efficient tumor accumulation and prolonged tumor retention with quick clearance from bloodstream and normal organs. Ultimately, PVA-BPA showed critically enhanced antitumor activity in BNCT. The facile technique proposed in this study offers an approach for drug delivery focusing on drug metabolism. Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) uses nuclear fission reaction between a boron atom (10B) and a low-energy the...

The relentless march of technology continues to introduce harder-to-cut materials to the tube and pipe market, quality demands continue to increase, and competitive pressures never let up. Photo courtesy of BLM GROUP USA, Novi, Mich. Form, notch, punch, pierce, drill, tap, bevel, grind, weld—regardless of what you do to a tube or a pipe to get it ready to ship to your customer, the first operation is likely to be a cutting process. Although many cutting process choices have been available for decades, many of the machines in use today are far more advanced than their predecessors of just a few years ago. As tube and pipe materials are becoming more varied and competitive pressures more challenging, software, sensors, and control systems are getting more capable. The outcome? Equipment vendors have more choices in hardware and software, allowing them to develop machines that are faster, more accurate, more versatile, and more automated than ever before to help tube and pipe fabricators meet increasingly challenging cutting applications. The relentless pace of technology brings improved or entirely new products to the marketplace, and in many cases, those products are made from im...
