Stable suspensions of NiO and Mn₃O₄ nanoparticles (NPs) with a mean (±s.d.) diameter of 16.7±8.2 and 18.4±5.4 nm, respectively, purposefully prepared by laser ablation of 99.99% pure nickel or manganese in de-ionized water, were repeatedly injected intraperitoneally (IP) to rats at a dose of 2.5 mg/kg 3 times a week up to 18 injections, either alone or in(More)
Stable suspensions of NiO and/or Mn3O4 nanoparticles with a mean diameter of 16.7 ± 8.2 nm and 18.4 ± 5.4 nm, respectively, prepared by laser ablation of 99.99% pure metals in de-ionized water were repeatedly injected IP to rats at a dose of 0.50 mg or 0.25 mg 3 times a week up to 18 injections, either separately or in different combinations.

The aim of our study was to test a hypothesis according to which the pulmonary clearance vs. retention of metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) is controlled not only by physiological mechanisms but also by their solubilization which in some cases may even prevail. Airborne Fe2O3 NPs with the mean diameter of 14±4nm produced by sparking from 99.99% pure iron rods(More)
Stable suspensions of metal oxide nanoparticles (Me-NPs) obtained by laser ablation of 99.99% pure copper, zinc or lead under a layer of deionized water were used separately, in three binary combinations and a triple combination in two independent experiments on rats. In one of the experiments the rats were instilled with Me-NPs intratracheally (i.t.) (for(More)
We used stable water suspensions of copper oxide particles with mean diameter 20 nm and of particles containing copper oxide and element copper with mean diameter 340 nm to assess the pulmonary phagocytosis response of rats to a single intratracheal instillation of these suspensions using optical, transmission electron, and semi-contact atomic force(More)
Antibiotic sensitivity of 104 Shigella clinical strains and 104 Escherichia coli strains isolated from patients with acute dysentery not treated with antibiotics in 1986-1987 was studied. It was shown that 100 per cent of the dysentery pathogens and colon bacilli were antibiotic resistant. Strains resistant simultaneously to chloramphenicol, ampicillin,(More)
Comparative and combined damaging effects of NiO and Mn3O4 nanoparticles were estimated on cultures of several established human cell lines. The cytotoxicity indices used were: (a) reduction in cellular dehydrogenase activity, (b) decrease in the ATP-content, (c) for SH-SY5Y cells also decrease in the tyrosine hydroxylase content. The combined cytotoxicity(More)
AIM The safety options in nanomedicine raise an issue of the optimal niche at the real-world clinical practice. METHODS This is an observational prospective cohort analysis of the 5-year clinical outcomes at the intention-to-treat population (nano vs ferro vs stenting; n = 180) of NANOM first-in-man trial (NCT01270139). RESULTS Mortality (6 vs 9 vs 10(More)
Mechanical ventilation of the lungs (MVL) with positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) is difficult in patients with unilateral lung damage because of uneven distribution of volumes and pressures in the involved and intact lungs. Harmful effects are easier manifested under such conditions. Selective MVL with selective PEEP is widely used abroad for(More)
