Impact of particle size and surface modification on gold nanoparticle penetration into human placental microtissues.

Abstract

AIM Nanoparticle-based drug carriers hold great promise for the development of targeted therapies in pregnancy with reduced off-target effects. Here, we performed a mechanistic in vitro study on placental localization and penetration of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) in dependence of particle size and surface modification. MATERIALS & METHODS AuNP uptake and… (More)
