Tumor targeting using magnetic nanoparticle Hsp70 conjugate in a model of C6 glioma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs), due to their unique magnetic properties, have the ability to function both as magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agents, and can be used for thermotherapy. SPIONs conjugated to the heat shock protein Hsp70 that selectively binds to the CD40 receptor present on glioma cells, could be used for MR… (More)
