Different effect of hydrogelation on antifouling and circulation properties of dextran-iron oxide nanoparticles.
Published in Molecular Pharmaceutics
Premature recognition and clearance of nanoparticulate imaging and therapeutic agents by macrophages in the tissues can dramatically reduce both the nanoparticle half-life and delivery to the diseased tissue. Grafting nanoparticles with hydrogels prevents nanoparticulate recognition by liver and spleen macrophages and greatly prolongs circulation t...
A surface-charge study on cellular-uptake behavior of F3-peptide-conjugated iron oxide nanoparticles.
Published in Small
Surface-charge measurements of mammalian cells in terms of Zeta potential are demonstrated as a useful biological characteristic in identifying cellular interactions with specific nanomaterials. A theoretical model of the changes in Zeta potential of cells after incubation with nanoparticles is established to predict the possible patterns of Zeta-p...
