Physical activity is known to induce oxidative stress in individuals subjected to intense exercise. In this study, we investigated the lipoprotein profile and the plasma antioxidant status in a group of soccer players engaged in a regular training programme. As was expected for aerobic exercise, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) and HDL3-C levels(More)
Wireless deep brain stimulation of well-defined neuronal populations could facilitate the study of intact brain circuits and the treatment of neurological disorders. Here, we demonstrate minimally invasive and remote neural excitation through the activation of the heat-sensitive capsaicin receptor TRPV1 by magnetic nanoparticles. When exposed to alternating(More)
This article develops a set of design guidelines for maximizing heat dissipation characteristics of magnetic ferrite MFe2O4 (M = Mn, Fe, Co) nanoparticles in alternating magnetic fields. Using magnetic and structural nanoparticle characterization, we identify key synthetic parameters in the thermal decomposition of organometallic precursors that yield(More)
From magnetic resonance imaging to cancer hyperthermia and wireless control of cell signaling, ferrite nanoparticles produced by thermal decomposition methods are ubiquitous across biomedical applications. While well-established synthetic protocols allow for precise control over the size and shape of the magnetic nanoparticles, structural defects within(More)
Targeted cancer therapies require a precise determination of the underlying biological processes driving tumorigenesis within the complex tumor microenvironment. Therefore, new diagnostic tools that capture the molecular activity at the disease site in vivo are needed to better understand tumor behavior and ultimately maximize therapeutic responses.

Alternating magnetic fields (AMFs) cause magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) to dissipate heat while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed, a mechanism that serves as the basis for a variety of emerging biomedical technologies. Unfortunately, the challenges and costs of developing experimental setups commonly used to produce AMFs with suitable field amplitudes and(More)

KGaA, Weinheim 1 wileyonlinelibrary.com The existence of nanoscale heating in MNPs presents a remarkable deviation from the predictions of bulk heat transport equations.[6,7] Though MNPs can exhibit high specific loss powers (SLPs) more than 1000 W g−1,[8] allowing them to appreciably raise the temperature of suspensions(More)
