A novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent containing Herceptin is reported. The surfaces of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were modified with dextran and conjugated with Herceptin (Herceptin-nanoparticles) to improve their dispersion, magnetization, and targeting of the specific receptors on cells. From analytical results, we found(More)
The surface of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIO) with different molecular weight of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and folic acid (FA) were synthesized. The SPIO-PEG-FA nanoparticles are well-dispersed and have good stability in various pH solutions. The lack of hysterestis and remanence at ambient temperatures is characteristic of(More)
A new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast bearing RGD peptide is reported. In this study, ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) nanoparticles with various sizes were prepared. Particles sizes between 6 and 13 nm were tuned by varying the stirring rate. Remarkable negative contrast was observed because USPIO nanoparticles (13.1  ±  2.1 nm)(More)
