Cytotoxicity of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is a prime concern for its use as antigen carriers. Here we evaluated the cytotoxic effect of unpurified (UP-CNTs), purified (P-CNTs), fluorescein isothiocyanate-functionalized (FITC-CNTs), and Entamoeba histolytica 220-kDa lectin-functionalized CNTs (L220-CNTs) in J774A macrophage (MOs) cell line. Cell viability and(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are used as carriers in medicine due to their ability to be functionalized with chemical substances. However, cytotoxicity analysis is required prior to use for in vivo models. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxic effect of CNTs functionalized with a 46 kDa surface protein from Entamoeba histolytica (P46-CNTs) on J774A(More)
