Pathogenesis of amyloid-related diseases is associated with the presence of protein amyloid deposits. Insulin amyloids have been reported in a patient with diabetes undergoing treatment by injection of insulin and causes problems in the production and storage of this drug and in pplication of insulin pumps. We have studied the interference of insulin(More)
OBJECTIVES The acute toxicity of magnetic nanoparticles was effectively lowered by their encapsulation with poly(D,L lactide). In relation to the idea to use magnetic nanoparticles in development of new delivery systems suitable for targeted drug administration, the toxicological profile of five types of magnetic fluids was assessed in mice. METHODS The(More)
In this work the 4-(trans- 4'-n -hexylcyclohexyl)-isothiocyanatobenzene (6CHBT) liquid crystal was doped with differently shaped magnetite nanoparticles. The structural changes were observed by capacitance measurements and showed significant influence of the shape and size of the magnetic particles on the magnetic Fréedericksz transition. For the volume(More)
The human lung adenocarcinoma epithelial (A549) cells and the human embryo lung (HEL 12469) cells were used to investigate the uptake and cytotoxicity of magnetite nanoparticles (MNPs) with different chemically modified surfaces. MNPs uptake was an energy-dependent process substantially affected by the serum concentration in the culture medium. Internalized(More)
Control of the size and spatial distribution of materials at multiple length scales is one of the most compelling issues in nanotechnology research. We report a multiple-length-scale patterning of pure magnetic particles as well as biocompatible magnetic particles based on a printing technique named micro-injection molding in capillaries. The magnetic(More)
Magnetic fluids are stable colloidal systems of fine single-domain magnetic particles (for example Fe 3 O 4 , γ-Fe 2 O 3 , Co, MnFe 2 O 4, etc.) that are suspended in liquid carrier such as water, mineral oil, damping oil, paraffin, kerosene and so on. The properties of magnetic fluids are well controlled by external magnetic field that gives broad(More)
The ultrasonic propagation in the water-based magnetic fluid with doubled layered surfactant shell was studied. The measurements were carried out both in the presence as well as in the absence of the external magnetic field. The thickness of the surfactant shell was evaluated by comparing the mean size of magnetic grain extracted from magnetization curve(More)
Presence of protein amyloid deposits is associated with pathogenesis of amyloid-related diseases. Insulin amyloid aggregates have been reported in a patient with diabetes undergoing treatment by injection of insulin. We have investigated the interference of insulin amyloid aggregation with two Fe3O4-based magnetic fluids. The magnetic fluids are able to(More)
In this study, we have prepared PLGA (poly-D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) nanospheres loaded with biocompatible magnetic fluid and anticancer drug taxol by a modified nanoprecipitation technique and investigated their magnetic properties. A magnetic fluid, MF-PEG, with a biocompatible layer of polyethylene glycol (PEG), was chosen as a magnetic carrier. The(More)
An all-fiber magnetic field sensor based on whispering-gallery modes (WGM) in a fiber micro-resonator infiltrated with ferronematic liquid crystal is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. The cylindrical microresonator is formed by a 1 cm-long section of a photonic crystal fiber infiltrated with ferronematic materials. Both ferronematics suspensions are(More)
