To maximize the effect of treatment and minimize the adverse effect on patients, we propose to optimize nanorobots-assisted targeted drug delivery (TDD) for locoregional treatment of tumor from the perspective of touchable communication channel estimation and waveform design.
A nano-abnormality detection scheme (NADS) in molecular nano-networks is studied. This is motivated by the fact that early detection of diseases such as cancer plays a crucial role in their successful treatment.
The use of echogenic liposomes to deliver chemotherapeutic agents for cancer treatment has gained wide recognition in the last 20 years. Cancerous cells can develop multiple drug resistance (MDR), in part, due to the drop in concentration of chemotherapeutic agents below the therapeutic levels inside the tumor.
This special issue includes a selection of papers presented at the 12th International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Application (ISBRA), which was held at Belorussian State University in Minsk, Belarus on June 5-8, 2016.
MicroRNAs have close relationship with human diseases. Therefore, identifying disease related MicroRNAs plays an important role in disease diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. However, designing an effective computational method…
Sequencing of RNA provides the possibility to study an individual’s transcriptome landscape and determine allelic expression ratios. Single-molecule protocols generate multi-kilobase reads longer than most transcripts…
Gene silencing through RNA interference (RNAi) has emerged as a potential strategy in manipulating cancer causing genes by complementary base-pairing mechanism. Small interfering RNA (siRNA) is an important RNAi tool that has found significant application in cancer therapy.
In this paper, we consider a decode-and-forward (DF) relay-assisted diffusion-based molecular communication system inside one of the blood vessels of a human body with positive drift from transmitter to receiver.
