Nonpolymeric surface-coated iron oxide nanoparticles for in vivo molecular imaging: biodegradation, biocompatibility, and multiplatform.

Abstract

UNLABELLED A new approach to the surface engineering of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) may encourage their development for clinical use. In this study, we demonstrated that nonpolymeric surface modification of SPIONs has the potential to be an advanced biocompatible contrast agent for biomedical applications, including diagnostic… (More)
