A new biocompatible, biodegradable, self-assembled chitosan-based nanoparticulate product was successfully synthesized and radiolabeled with technetium-99m, and studied as a potential new SPECT or SPECT/CT imaging agent for diagnosis of folate receptor overexpressing tumors. In the present study we examined the conditions of a preclinical application of(More)
The present investigation describes the synthesis and characterization of novel biodegradable nanoparticles based on chitosan for biomedical applications. Natural di- and tricarboxylic acids were used for intramolecular cross-linking of the chitosan linear chains. The condensation reaction of carboxylic groups and pendant amino groups of chitosan was(More)
We report the synthesis, in vitro and in vivo investigation of folate-targeted, biocompatible, biodegradable self-assembled nanoparticles radiolabelled with (99m)Tc, as potential new SPECT or SPECT/CT imaging agent. Nanoparticles with hydrodynamic size in the range of 75-200 nm were prepared by self-assembly of chitosan and folated poly-γ-glutamic acid, and(More)
The present investigation describes the synthesis and characterization of novel biodegradable nanoparticles based on chitosan. Poly(ethylene glycol) dicarboxylic acid was used for intramolecular cross-linking of the chitosan linear chains. The condensation reaction of carboxylic groups and pendant amino groups of chitosan was performed by using(More)
The present investigation describes the preparation and characterization of novel biodegradable nanoparticles based on complexation of poly-gamma-glutamic acid (gamma-PGA) with bivalent lead ion. The prepared nano-systems were stable in aqueous media at low pH, neutral and mild alkaline conditions. The particle size and the size of the complexes were(More)
We report here the synthesis, in vitro and in vivo investigation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) active nanoparticles, which target folate receptor overexpressing tumor cells. Self-assembled nanoparticles with a hydrodynamic size of 50-200 nm were prepared from poly-γ-glutamic acid and chitosan biopolymers with Gd-ions. The nanoparticles are(More)
The present investigation describes the preparation and characterization of novel biodegradable nanoparticles based on complexation of poly-gamma-glutamic acid (γ-PGA) with bivalent lead ions. The prepared nanosystems were stable in aqueous media at low pH, neutral and mild alkaline conditions. The solubility and size of these nanoparticles in the dried and(More)
AIM The aim of this work was to synthesize and study in vitro and in vivo nanocarriers used as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents that accumulate in tumor cells specifically overexpressing folate receptors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nanoparticles were prepared by self-assembly of poly-γ-glutamic acid and chitosan biopolymers and were complexed(More)
Heck reactions of some steroid derivatives possessing iodo-alkenyl moiety (17-iodo-androst-16-ene, 1, 17-iodo-4-aza-4-methyl-androst-16-en-3-one, 2, 17-iodo-4-aza-androst-16-en-3-one, 3) were carried out in the presence of palladium catalysts using various olefins (methyl acrylate, ethyl methacrylate, allyl alcohol and allyl acetate) as coupling partners.(More)
