One of the new strategies to improve cancer chemotherapy is based on new drug delivery systems, like the polyethylene glycol-coated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (PEG-SPION, thereafter called PS). In this study, PS are loaded with doxorubicin (DOX) anticancer drug, using a pre-formed DOX-Fe(2+) complex reversible at lower pH of tumour tissues(More)
Metallic nanoparticles (MNPs) such as iron oxide and gold nanoparticles are interesting platforms to build theragnostic nanocarriers which combine both therapeutic and diagnostic functions within a single nanostructure. Nevertheless, their surface must be functionalized to be suitable for in vivo applications. Surface functionalization also provides binding(More)
Hybrid (organic/inorganic) nanoparticles emerged as a simple solution to build "theranostic" systems. Due to their physical properties, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) and plasmonic gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) are extensively studied as a part of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in cancer treatments. They can be used as agents for(More)
The aim of this work was to elucidate the impact of polyethylene glycol (PEG) polymeric coating on the in vitro and in vivo stealthiness of magnetic nanocarriers loaded or not with the anticancer drug doxorubicin. The comparison was made between aqueous suspensions of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) stabilized by either citrate ions(More)
The aim of this work is to present a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopic approach to study complexes of a frequently used antineoplastic agent, doxorubicin (DOX), with ferrous ions, at sub-micromolar concentrations in aqueous solution. The SERS bands of DOX were assigned according to critical analysis of literature. Prior to the(More)
In the field of oncology, research is now focused on the development of theranostic nanosystems that combine the functions of drug delivery and imaging for diagnosis/monitoring. In this context, we designed polyethylene glycol (PEG)ylated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) for the delivery of doxorubicin (DOX), an antineoplastic agent.(More)
The intracellular distribution of the antiancer drug doxorubicin (DOX) was followed qualitatively by fluorescence confocal spectral imaging (FCSI) and quantitatively by capillary electrophoresis (CE). FCSI permits the localization of the major fluorescent species in cell compartments, with spectral shifts indicating the polarity of the respective(More)
