UV-shielding property, photocatalytic activity and cytotoxicity (including photocytotoxicity) of citrate-stabilized ceria colloid solutions were studied. It was established that UV-shielding property (namely, the sun protection factor, the critical absorption wavelength and the UVA/UVB-ratio) of ceria nanoparticles are as good as those of titanium dioxide(More)
Nanocrystalline ceria possesses a unique complex of physical and chemical properties making it highly bioactive material. In this review, modern data on the action of nanocrystalline ceria on cells, micro- and macroorganisms are analyzed. Special attention is paid to the analysis of the factors affecting protective properties of CeO2 with respect to the(More)
We have developed two parallel series, A and B, of CX3CR1 antagonists for the treatment of multiple sclerosis. By modifying the substituents on the 7-amino-5-thio-thiazolo[4,5-d]pyrimidine core structure, we were able to achieve compounds with high selectivity for CX3CR1 over the closely related CXCR2 receptor. The structure-activity relationships showed(More)
A novel facile method of non-doped and fluorescent terbium-doped cerium fluoride stable aqueous sols synthesis is proposed. Intense green luminescence of CeF3:Tb nanoparticles can be used to visualize these nanoparticles' accumulation in cells using confocal laser scanning microscopy. Cerium fluoride nanoparticles are shown for the first time to protect(More)
A method of panthenol-stabilized cerium dioxide nanoparticles synthesis was developed and their effect on the survival rate of human epidermoid cancer cells HEp-2 and diploid epithelial swine testicular cell line (ST-cells) under oxidative stress conditions induced by hydrogen peroxide introduction and UV irradiation was studied. The results obtained(More)
In this work, we present a modification of a stainless steel surface to impart superhydrophobic properties to it that are robust with respect to mechanical stresses associated with cyclic icing/deicing treatment, as well as to long-term contact with aqueous media and high humidity. The durability of the superhydrophobic state is ensured by the texture with(More)
Insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) increases the detection rate of occult atrial fibrillation (AF) after cryptogenic stroke. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic significance of total atrial conduction time (TACT) assessed by tissue Doppler imaging (PA-TDI interval) to predict AF presence in patients with cryptogenic stroke. Ninety patients(More)
A novel series of P3-truncated macrocyclic HCV NS3/4A protease inhibitors containing a P2 proline-urea or carbamate scaffold was synthesized. Very potent inhibitors were obtained through the optimization of the macrocycle size, urea and proline substitution, and bioisosteric replacement of the P1 carboxylic acid moiety. Variation of the lipophilicity by(More)
Ultrasonic-hydrothermal and hydrothermal treatment was used for synthesis of nanocrystalline zirconia, titania, nickel and nickel-zinc ferrites powders from precipitated amorphous zirconyl, titanyl, binary nickel-iron and ternary nickel-zinc-iron hydroxides, respectively. Resulted nanopowders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission(More)
Introduction The scientific information on biological activity of ceria dioxide nanoparticles (CeO2, nanoceria) is still very fragmentary. It is known, that nanoceria interaction with biological systems is based on two principal properties of this substance: low toxicity and high reducibility [1]. These factors determines activity of nanoceria in biological(More)
