The increasing interest in biomedical applications of semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) is closely linked to the use of surface modifications to target specific sites of the body. The immense surface area of vascular endothelium is a possible interaction platform with systemically administered QDs. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the microvascular distribution of neutral, cationic, and anionic QDs in vivo. QDs with carboxyl-, amine- and polyethylene glycol surface coatings… CONTINUE READING
