PURPOSE To examine the radiosensitizing effects of iron oxide nanoparticles in the presence of 6 MV (megavoltage) X-ray radiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Iron oxide nanoparticles with two different modifications - dextran coating (plain) and amino-group dextran coating - were used. The rate of iron oxide penetration was monitored using Prussian blue staining, magnetic resonance imaging and atomic adsorption spectroscopy. The effect of iron oxide on the viability of cells was determined using… CONTINUE READING
