The core-shell nanoparticles possessing poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) core coated with chitosan (CS), polyethyleneimine (PEI), and chitosan-mixed-polyethyleneimine (CS/PEI) shells were synthesized in this work. The emulsifier-free emulsion polymerization triggered by a redox initiating system from t-butylhydroperoxide (TBHP) and amine groups on CS and/or(More)
Water-soluble β-cyclodextrin grafted with chitosan (CD-g-CS) was carried out by quaternizing the CD-g-CS with glycidyltrimethyl ammonium chloride (GTMAC) under mild acidic condition, corresponding to the quaternized CD-g-CS (QCD-g-CS). The degrees of substitution (DS) and quaternization (DQ), ranging from 5% to 23% and 66% to 80%, respectively, were(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) is currently the mainstay of renal anaemia treatment. Recently, rHuEPO has been shown to provide pleiotrophic tissue protection in various pathological conditions. However, the benefits of rHuEPO beyond anaemia treatment are limited because it increases red blood cell mass. Carbamylated(More)
In this study, we examined the potential of cationic nanoparticle - polyethyleneimine-introduced chitosan shell/poly (methyl methacrylate) core nanoparticles (CS-PEI) for siRNA delivery. Initially, DNA delivery was performed to validate the capability of CS-PEI for gene delivery in the human cervical cancer cell line, SiHa. siRNA delivery were subsequently(More)
Gelatin hydrogel pads have been prepared from a 10 wt.-% gelatin solution that contained 2.5 wt.-% AgNO(3) in 70% v/v acetic acid by a solvent-casting technique. The AgNO(3)-containing gelatin solution was aged under mechanical stirring for various time intervals to allow for the formation of silver nanoparticles (nAgs). The formation of nAgs was monitored(More)
Novel immunomagnetic particles have been prepared for separation of CD4(+) lymphocytes. The magnetic nanoparticles with a diameter of approximately 5-6 nm were first synthesized by co-precipitation from ferrous and ferric iron solutions and subsequently encapsulated with poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) by precipitation polymerization. Monoclonal antibody(More)
Herein, we prepared PEI-immobilized core-shell particles possessing various types of polymer cores via a visible light-induced surfactant-free emulsion polymerization (SFEP) of three vinyl monomers: styrene (St), methyl methacrylate (MMA), and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA). An effect of monomers on the polymerization and characteristics of resulting(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the potential of magnetic poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) core/polyethyleneimine (PEI) shell (mag-PEI) nanoparticles, which possess high saturation magnetization for gene delivery. By using mag-PEI nanoparticles as a gene carrier, this study focused on evaluation of transfection efficiency under(More)
In this study two types of water-soluble βCD grafted chitosan were synthesized and compared based on similar degree of N-substitution of βCD moiety; QCD23-g-CS contained methylene spacer and QCDCA22-g-CS contained citric acid spacer. The QCD23-g-CS demonstrated greater eugenol (EG) encapsulation efficiency than that of QCDCA22-g-CS. The micelle-like(More)
This study intended to prepare iron oxide nanoparticle-entrapped chitosan (CS) nanoparticles for stem cell labeling. The nanoparticles were synthesized by polymerizing iron oxide nanoparticle-associated methacrylic acid monomer in the presence of CS. TEM revealed that the well-defined iron oxide nanoparticles were successfully encapsulated inside the CS(More)
