The clinical outcome of patients with ischemic heart disease can be significantly improved with the implementation of targeted drug delivery into the ischemic myocardium. In this paper, we present our original findings relevant to the problem of therapeutic heart targeting with use of nanoparticles. Experimental approaches included fabrication of carbon and(More)
Pharmacological agents suggested for infarct size limitation have serious side effects when used at cardioprotective doses which hinders their translation into clinical practice. The solution to the problem might be direct delivery of cardioprotective drugs into ischemic-reperfused myocardium. In this study, we explored the potential of silica nanoparticles(More)
Silica nanoparticles as carriers for targeted drug delivery to the heart were studied. Studies of hemodynamic parameters of rats after intravenous infusion of silica nanoparticles showed no acute toxicity. Intravenous infusion of silica nanoparticles to animals with ischemia-reperfusion of the myocardium led to accumulation of the nanoparticles in the focus(More)
