Interferon-Gamma Modification of Mesenchymal Stem Cells: Implications of Autologous and Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy in Allotransplantation
Strategies to reduce MSC-γ immunogenicity would facilitate “off-the-shelf” MSC therapy to efficiently inhibit alloimmune rejection and promote tissue repair in allotransplantation.
Bioactive coatings of endovascular stents based on polyelectrolyte multilayers.
The enhanced thromboresistance of the self-assembled multilayer together with the antiinflammatory and wound healing properties of hyaluronan and chitosan are expected to reduce the neointimal hyperplasia associated with stent implantation.
Functionalized Magnetite Nanoparticles—Synthesis, Properties, and Bio-Applications
This article attempts to review the current status of magnetite nanoparticles preparation and use, with a special emphasis on bio-medical applications, but also to outline the promises and challenges associated to this emerging technology.
Surface functionalisation of diatoms with dopamine modified iron-oxide nanoparticles: toward magnetically guided drug microcarriers with biologically derived morphologies.
The application of magnetised diatoms as magnetically guided drug delivery microcarriers has been demonstrated in diatom silica microcapsules prepared by purification of diatomaceous earth.
Effect of surface treatment and sterilization processes on the corrosion behavior of NiTi shape memory alloy.
Electropolished NiTi and 316L stainless-steel alloys released similar amounts of nickel after a few days of immersion in Hank's solution, and measurements by atomic absorption have shown that the amount of released nickel from passive dissolution was below the expected toxic level in the human body.
Delivery platform for hydrophobic drugs: prodrug approach combined with self-assembled multilayers.
It is shown that the presence of the hydrophobic paclitaxel moieties does not prohibit the layer-by-layer construction of the multilayers and application of this delivery platform to substrates such as colloids, biomedical implants, or vascular tissues may lead to new therapeutic strategies.

This review aims to discuss the recent developments in immunotargeting of functional nanoparticles and drug nanocarriers and the integration of these systems into clinically relevant therapeutic applications.
Electrostatic self-assembly of PEG copolymers onto porous silica nanoparticles.
Electrostatic self-assembly of PEG copolymers onto silica nanoparticles used as drug nanocarriers is a robust and efficient procedure, providing excellent control of their biointerfacial properties.
A robust procedure for the functionalization of gold nanorods and noble metal nanoparticles.
Towards a robust and universal functionalization procedure with alkanethiols for gold nanorods and plasmonic nanoparticles, a straightforward two-step approach is described.
