CPEU Course Description


The emergence of nanotechnology applied to medicine has revolutionized the treatment of human cancer.  This CPEU course summarizes the importance of the epigenetic alterations identified in human cancer, which have led to the appearance of biomarkers of epigenetic drugs in precision medicine.  The transport and release systems of the epigenetic drugs that have been developed to date are also described.

Brooke H. Dekofsky, MPH, RD, CLE, CDE was involved in the creation of this course.

CPEU Course Objectives

1.  Compare and contrast six different types of RNA molecules.

2.  Conclude which histone amino acid the acetylation of is almost always correlated with chromatin accessibility and transcriptional activation.

3.  Explain how lipid nanocarriers can protect a drug from degradation.

4.  Identify what have been proposed as safe and biocompatible carriers especially for agents that show limited tissue penetration or are rapidly inactivated.

5.  List four tumor-targeting ligands.

6.  Name the fatty acid conjugated to the azacytidine molecule to develop the CP-4200 prodrug.
