AIM Gold nanoparticles are employed for imaging and treatment of surgically inaccessible tumors owing to their inherent optical absorption and ability to extravasate through intravenous distribution. These nanoparticles are cleared from the blood by the reticuloendothelial system (RES) as expected given their size. MATERIALS & METHODS This study(More)
The feasibility of using EDXRF for a rapid quantitative analysis of gold in tumor tissue has been investigated. The protocol described here demonstrates that sample biopsies can be analyzed in as little as 8 hours, with minimal sample preparation. Samples were prepared by drying a 35 μL aliquot of tissue dissolved in KOH in a standard EDXRF cup on a(More)
