      Voskarides, Konstantinos; Damianou, Loukas; Neocleous, Vassos; Zouvani, Ioanna; Christodoulidou, Stalo; Hadjiconstantinou, Valsamakis E.; Ioannou, Kyriakos; Athanasiou, Yiannis; Patsias, Charalambos; Alexopoulos, Efstathios; Pierides, Alkis M.; Kyriacou, Kyriacos C.; Constantinou-Deltas, Constantinos D. (2007)
      Mutations in the COL4A3/COL4A4 genes of type IV collagen have been found in ∼40% of cases of thin basement membrane nephropathy, which is characterized by microscopic hematuria and is classically thought to cause proteinuria ...

      Multistage nanoparticle delivery system for deep penetration into tumor tissue 

      Wong, C.; Stylianopoulos, T.; Cui, J.; Martin, J.; Chauhan, V. P.; Jiang, W.; Popovic, Z.; Jain, R. K.; Bawendi, M. G.; Fukumura, D. (2011)
      Current Food and Drug Administration-approved cancer nanotherapeutics, which passively accumulate around leaky regions of the tumor vasculature because of an enhanced permeation and retention (EPR) effect, have provided ...

      Multistage nanoparticles for improved delivery into tumor tissue 

      Stylianopoulos, T.; Wong, C.; Bawendi, M. G.; Jain, R. K.; Fukumura, D. (2012)
      The enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect has been a key rationale for the development of nanoscale carriers to solid tumors. As a consequence of EPR, nanotherapeutics are expected to improve drug and detection ...
