Cytokine profile of iron-laden macrophages: implications for cellular magnetic resonance imaging.


Superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO/USPIO) particles are a promising new tool to label cells for in vivo monitoring of their migration into the nervous system by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Upon systemic application, SPIO/USPIO particles are preferentially internalized by macrophages. It is unclear whether this affects their immunological profile. We… (More)
