Due to finite size effects, such as the high surface-to-volume ratio and different crystal structures, magnetic nanoparticles are found to exhibit interesting and considerably different magnetic properties than those found in their corresponding bulk materials. These nanoparticles can be synthesized in several ways (e.g., chemical and physical) with(More)
To investigate the effects of an extremely low-frequency (ELF) magnetic field on their fertility, adult male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to a 50 Hz sinusoidal magnetic field of approximately 25 microT (rms) for 90 days before they were mated with unexposed counterparts. Exposure to a 50 Hz field reduced male rat fertility. The number of(More)
Metal oxide nanoparticles have been suggested as good candidates for the development of antibacterial agents. Cerium oxide (CeO2) and iron oxide (Fe2O3) nanoparticles have been utilized in a number of biomedical applications. Here, the antibacterial activity of CeO2 and Fe2O3 nanoparticles were evaluated on a panel of gram positive and gram negative(More)
BACKGROUND Iron oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (IO-NP) were recently employed in medical applications as a diagnostic and drug carrier. Photofrin (PF) is a photosensitizer that clinically used in Photodynamic therapy (PDT). STUDY DESIGN the photosensitivity of the PF and Rose Bengal (RB) mixed with (IO-NP) on red blood cells (RBCs) lysis was investigated.(More)
PDMS and PMMA are two of the most used polymers in the fabrication of lab-on-chip or microfluidic devices. In order to use these polymers in biological applications, it is sometimes essential to be able to bind biomolecules such as proteins and DNA to the surface of these materials. In this work, we have evaluated a number of processes that have been(More)
