Administration of a CO-releasing molecule or its polymer micelles significantly increased extravasation and the accumulation of macromolecular agents in tumors [46]. 4 L. casei: A Promising Candidate for Bacterial Therapy L. casei is a nonpathogenic facultatively-anaerobic bacterium that is also a component of the normal bacterial flora in the human intestinal tract and reproductive system. L. casei is widely used in various dairy and food supplements, as a so-called probiotic. More important, this bacterium also showed antitumor activity by stimulating nonspecific immune responses, such as macrophage and NK cell activation [36–39], and is considered useful as a medication to prevent recurrence of bladder cancer [21, 22, 47, 48], with mechanisms similar to those of Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) [ 49 ].

1 Device Design 1. Draw design using a vector drawing program (see Note 1). 2. In the design, connect chambers to flow inlets and outlets at the front of the chamber and packing outlets on the rear of chamber. Chambers are 1000 × 300 μm, channels are 250 μm, posts are 195 × 65 μm, and restriction valves are a triangle and an inverted triangle spanning a 125 × 250 μm area (see Fig. 1 and Note 2). 3. Print devices on high quality imagesetting film with 100 μm polyester base and 5080 dpi resolution (see Note 3).
