To limit cytotoxicity of anticancer drugs against healthy cells, an appropriate carrier should be synthesized to deliver the drug to the tumor tissue only. A good solution is to anchor a magnetic nanoparticle to the molecule of the drug and to use a properly directed external magnetic field. The synthesis of the conjugate of doxorubicin with magnetic(More)
The interaction between silver nanoparticles and herpesviruses is attracting great interest due to their antiviral activity and possibility to use as microbicides for oral and anogenital herpes. In this work, we demonstrate that tannic acid modified silver nanoparticles sized 13 nm, 33 nm and 46 nm are capable of reducing HSV-2 infectivity both in vitro and(More)
Magnetic drug targeting executed by nanoparticles as carriers is a promising cancer treatment which avoids the side effects of conventional chemotherapy. We have modified doxorubicin with magnetic nanoparticles. Doxorubicin (adriamycin) is a potential anticancer drug yet nonspecific in its antibiotic action. Therefore, carriers for tissue-specific, targeted(More)
A method is presented for the electroanalytical characterization of interactions of dsDNA with a drug, under conditions that both agents are dissolved in the phosphate buffer solution and both are electroactive. Normal pulse, square wave, differential pulse, and cyclic voltammetries were employed in the measurements of the drug and dsDNA oxidation signals(More)
A mathematical model implemented by simulation is presented for voltammetry of a reversible couple that involves a fast preceding chemical reaction and mixed diffusional and migrational transport. The hydrogen couple, H(+)/H(2), fulfills the above criteria. For strong acids there is no preceding reaction, whereas for weak acids the preceding reaction is HA(More)
Composites consisting of ss- and ds-DNA strands and polyacrylamide (PAM) hydrogel have been synthesized. DNA was entrapped non-covalently. The obtained DNA biomaterial exhibited a strong increase in guanine and adenine anodic currents when temperature reached the physiological level. This increase was related to the unique oligonucleotide structural changes(More)
Cyclic voltammetric curves obtained at Pt electrodes for the hydrogen couple, H(+)/H(2), fit very well the Shuman theory, as corrected, for reversible electrode processes of other than 1:1 stoichiometry. Good agreement was obtained for acid concentrations in the millimolar range and for normal scan rates, which minimize the effect of the adsorption peaks.(More)
Application of hydrogel based on N-isopropylacrylamide with carboxyl groups grafted to the chains enabled the immobilization of DNA at an extent exceeding that for flat surfaces by at least one order of magnitude. The probe DNA strands in the 3D platform were fully available for the hybridization process. The examination of the gels containing different(More)
The current response of a 10-μm wall-tube microelectrode in a flow injection system under the conditions of low ionic strength has been examined experimentally for several redox systems such as ferrocene in methanol, undiluted methanol, and water in acetone. The examination involved the dependence of the current on the positioning of the microelectrode(More)
An effective, fast, facile and direct electrochemical method of determination of hemoglobin (Hb) in blood sample without any sample preparation is described. The method is accomplished by using the ferromagnetic electrode modifier (carbon-encapsulated iron nanoparticles) and an external magnetic field. The successful voltammetric determination of hemoglobin(More)
