Biological applications of magnetic nanoparticles.
In this review an overview about biological applications of magnetic colloidal nanoparticles will be given, which comprises their synthesis, characterization, and in vitro and in vivo applications.Expand
The modality of cell-particle interactions drives the toxicity of nanosized CuO and TiO₂ in human alveolar epithelial cells.
Metal oxide NPs are abundantly produced in nanotech industries and are emitted in several combustion processes, suggesting the need to characterize their toxic impact on the human respiratory system.Expand
Recent advances in magnetic fluid hyperthermia for cancer therapy.
Recently, magnetic fluid hyperthermia using biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles as heat mediators for cancer therapy has been extensively investigated due to its high efficiency and limited sideExpand
Protein nanocages for self-triggered nuclear delivery of DNA-targeted chemotherapeutics in Cancer Cells.
A genetically engineered apoferritin variant consisting of 24 heavy-chain subunits (HFn) was produced to achieve a cumulative delivery of an antitumor drug, which exerts its cytotoxic action byExpand
Nanoformulation of antiretroviral drugs enhances their penetration across the blood brain barrier in mice.
UNLABELLED Eradication of virus by sanctuary sites is a main goal in HIV management. The central nervous system (CNS) is a classic model of sanctuary where viral replication occurs despite a completeExpand
Investigation of antitumor activities of trastuzumab delivered by PLGA nanoparticles
Background We report the development of an efficient antibody delivery system for the incorporation of trastuzumab (TZ) into poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid nanoparticles (PLGA NPs). The aim of theExpand
Delivering colloidal nanoparticles to mammalian cells: a nano-bio interface perspective.
Understanding the behavior of multifunctional colloidal nanoparticles capable of biomolecular targeting remains a fascinating challenge in materials science with dramatic implications in view of aExpand
Negatively charged silver nanoparticles with potent antibacterial activity and reduced toxicity for pharmaceutical preparations
Background The discovery of new solutions with antibacterial activity as efficient and safe alternatives to common preservatives (such as parabens) and to combat emerging infections andExpand
In situ determination of the saturation solubility of nanocrystals of poorly soluble drugs for dermal application.
The aim of this study was to determine, in situ, the saturation solubility and dissolution rate of nanocrystals of three poorly water-soluble drugs for dermal application. The nanocrystals wereExpand
