Figure 1. Systemic administration (i.v.) of Pancreas In Vivo Transfection Reagent conjugated with 80 ug of chemically modified siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues (Pancreas, Brain, Muscle, Kidney, Tumor, Heart, Spleen, Lung) were collected and RNA isolated 48 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by qRT-PCR for Lamin A/C gene expression levels. Ribosomal RNA levels were used to normalize the Lamin A/C data. Data are means ± SD (n=8).
Figure 2. Intratumoral administration (i.t.) of Pancreas In Vivo Transfection Reagent conjugated with 80 ug of chemically modified siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues (Pancreas, Brain, Muscle, Kidney, Tumor, Heart, Spleen, Lung) were collected and RNA isolated 48 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by qRT-PCR for Lamin A/C gene expression levels. Ribosomal RNA levels were used to normalize the Lamin A/C data. Data are means ± SD (n=8).
Figure 3. Systemic administration (i.v.) of Pancreas In Vivo Transfection Reagent conjugated with 80 ug of chemically modified siRNA targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA following the recommended protocol. Tissues (Liver, Brain, Muscle, Kidney, Tumor, Heart, Spleen, Lung) were collected and total protein fraction isolated 72 hours after first injection. Samples were analyzed by Western Blot Analysis for Lamin A/C gene expression levels.

Pancreas-targeted in vivo transfection
Targeted drug delivery in pancreatic cancer involves the delivery of therapeutic agents specifically to cancer cells in the pancreas, while minimizing side effects in healthy tissues. This approach can improve the efficacy of cancer treatment and reduce the toxicity associated with traditional chemotherapy. One approach to targeted drug delivery is the use of nanoparticles, which can be engineered to selectively accumulate in tumor tissue. For example, nanoparticles can be coated with ligands that specifically bind to receptors on the surface of pancreatic cancer cells, allowing for targeted delivery of the drug payload. Additionally, nanoparticles can be designed to release their drug payload in response to specific stimuli, such as low pH or the presence of enzymes that are abundant in the tumor microenvironment. Another approach to targeted drug delivery in pancreatic cancer is the use of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), which combine the targeting ability of antibodies with the cytotoxicity of chemotherapy drugs. ADCs consist of an antibody that targets a specific antigen on the surface of cancer cells, linked to a cytotoxic drug. When the ADC binds to the cancer cell, the drug is released and induces cell death. Additionally, researchers are investigating the use of gene therapy for targeted drug delivery in pancreatic cancer. This approach involves the delivery of genetic material, such as small interfering RNA (siRNA), to inhibit the expression of genes that contribute to tumor growth and progression. Targeted drug delivery in pancreatic cancer is an active area of research, and ongoing studies are focused on developing more effective and specific delivery systems to improve the treatment of this challenging disease.
