Ferrofluids are attractive candidates for magnetic targeting system because of their fluidity and magnetism. The magnetic nanoparticles in ferrofluids should have combined properties of superparamagnetic behavior, target localization, and biocompatibility. The magnetic targeting and biocompatibility of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles stabilized by alginate (SPION-alginate) was investigated in vitro and in vivo. The localization of SPION-alginate by an external magnetic field in vitro… CONTINUE READING
