Investigation of factors and molecular mechanisms of malignant transformation in human
Development of technology of targeted drug delivery to eukaryotic cells
Ñurrent Research Activities and Recent Achievements:
- Study on molecular pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and role of Bcr domains in this pathology.
- Elaboration of the test-system for Ph-positive leukemias diagnostics and detection of Abl mutations in patients with resistance to imatinib.
- Formulating novel role of PH domain as protein-protein and protein-lipid anchor, study on proteins that interact with it as well as changes in methylation status of the promotor regions of certain genes in cancer.
- Development of nanovectors on the basis of branched dextran-polyacrilamide and dispersed silicium for targeted drug delivery to cells with phagocyte activity as a step for therapy of monocytic leukemias and histiocytic neoplasms.
- Studies on CXCR4 expression in cancer progenitor cells and development of nanotechnology-based therapy and imaging for prostate cancer using CXCR4-targeted metal nanoparticles.
