Loss processes in magnetic nanoparticles are discussed with respect to optimization of the specific loss power (SLP) for application in tumour hyperthermia. Several types of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles representative for different preparation methods (wet chemical precipitation, grinding, bacterial synthesis, magnetic size fractionation) are the(More)
When using magnetic nanoparticles as a heating source for magnetic particle hyperthermia it is of particular interest to know if the particles are free to move in the interstitial fluid or are fixed to the tumour tissue. The immobilization state determines the relaxation behaviour of the administered particles and thus their specific heating power. To(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize the behaviour of cisplatin adsorbed magnetic nanoparticles (cis-MNPs) for minimal invasive cancer treatments in preliminary in vitro investigations. Cisplatin was adsorbed to magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) by simple incubation. For stability determinations, cis-MNPs were incubated in dH(2)O, phosphate-buffered saline(More)
Using the thermal decomposition of organometallics method we have synthesized high-quality, iron oxide nanoparticles of tailorable size up to ~15nm and transferred them to a water phase by coating with a biocompatible polymer. The magnetic behavior of these particles was measured and fit to a log-normal distribution using the Chantrell method and their(More)
The derivation of the optimum mean diameter of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) for hyperthermia as a tumour therapy in the literature is commonly reduced to application of the Néel relaxation model. Serious restrictions of this model for MNP for hyperthermia are discussed and a way is outlined to a more comprehensive model including hysteresis.
Magnetic nanoparticles are very useful for various medical applications where each application requires particles with specific magnetic properties. In this paper we describe the modification of the magnetic properties of magnetic multicore nanoparticles (MCNPs) by size dependent fractionation. This classification was carried out by means of asymmetric flow(More)
PURPOSE Magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) are known to be versatile tools in diagnostic and interventional radiology. The goal of the present study was to assess whether MNP can be selectively accumulated on human adenocarcinoma cells in vitro using an external magnetic field (magnetically induced cell labeling) and whether these labeled tumor cells can then be(More)
High-speed tracking of single particles is a gateway to understanding physical, chemical, and biological processes at the nanoscale. It is also a major experimental challenge, particularly for small, nanometer-scale particles. Although methods such as confocal or fluorescence microscopy offer both high spatial resolution and high signal-to-background(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if there is a difference between successful and less successful rehabilitation facilities concerning their extent and quality of interdisciplinary cooperation? METHODS This analysis is part of the project MeeR, that aims to identify characteristics of rehabilitation facilities related to successful rehabilitation. 6 facilities were(More)
