These problems are mainly caused by economic pressure for industrialisation, technological advancement, population growth, poverty and ignorance. Western moral speculations like deep ecology, land ethic, ecofeminism and as well as scientific approaches methodologies have been employed in other to solve this problem.&nbsp; However these theories have been proven not to be very much effective. African eco-communitarianism as a hypothesis, implanted on Indigenous information framework can contribute to supply a local- developed answer for our current environmental issues. For Africa, environmental ethics is metaphysically embedded in what it means to be or to exist. Consequently, environmental ethics should be understood as stretching from the individual being to involve the communities of other persons, non-human persons as well the environment.</p> Samuel Akpan Bassey (Author) ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4958 Sat, 01 Dec 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Peptide Conjugated Lipid Nanoparticles and Cancer Drug Delivery https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4960 <p>Peptide Conjugated Lipid Nanoparticles and their role on Cancer Drug Delivery are reviewed here. The benefits of nanotechnology and combination style of medicine delivery are still hindered without the active ligands needed for treatment efficacy. This work analyzes the role of peptide ligands in different forms of cancer treatments targeting cells and tissues.</p> Wei Xiao (Author) ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4960 Fri, 30 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Peptide-based Therapeutic Service Delivery For Cancer https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4961 <p>Peptides have numerous advantages as the chains help treat cancer, tumor and several complicated diseases. The review details on the different structures of peptides that can ensure positive and efficient delivery of therapy to tumor and cancer cases. The co-delivery system particularly aims to improve the therapeutic delivery process in terms of manufacturing, targeting, and impact.</p> Wenzhe Huang (Author) ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4961 Fri, 30 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Use of Nanoparticles for Brain and Lung Treatments https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4962 <p>Nanotechnology is and will be the future of several fields and medicine is one of them. The use of nanoparticles in the treatment of psychotic and cancer problems is analyzed in this report. Psychotic treatment has been effective due to certain nanoparticles like haloperidol and RISP and these combinations are linked with other nanoparticles to treat other diseases. Nanoparticles have extended applications with a high degree of effectiveness to treat cancer cells due to the quick delivery and targeted process and the same is detailed in the review sheet. Oligonucleotides combined with nanoparticles have greater efficiencies.</p> Xialin Chen (Author) ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ssjournals.com/index.php/ijasr/article/view/4962 Fri, 30 Nov 2018 00:00:00 +0000
