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)
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)
