Gadonanotube materials as new intracellular MRI contrast agents for stem cell labeling
Stem cells possess great potential for different medical applications and every year more investigators join this field of study. As interest in stem cells has increased, it has become essential to track the cellsin vivo in ...
Characterization of a novel MR-detectable nanoantioxidant that mitigates the recall immune response
In many human diseases, the presence of inflammation is associated with an increase in the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS). The resulting state of oxidative stress is highly detrimental and can initiate a cascade ...
Relaxivity Enhancement of Aquated Tris(β-diketonate)gadolinium(III) Chelates by Confinement within Ultrashort Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes
Ultrashort single-walled carbon nanotubes loaded with gadolinium ions (gadonanotubes) have been previously shown to exhibit extremely high T1-weighted relaxivities (>100 mM-1s-1). To further examine the effect of nanoconfinement ...
Targeting pancreatic cancer with magneto-fluorescent theranostic gold nanoshells
Aim: We report a magneto-fluorescent theranostic nanocomplex targeted to neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) for imaging and therapy of pancreatic cancer. Materials & methods: Gold nanoshells resonant at 810 ...
Toward carbon nanotube-based imaging agents for the clinic
Among the many applications for carbon nanotubes (CNTs), their use in medicine has drawn special attention due to their potential for a variety of therapeutic and diagnostic applications. As progress toward clinical ...
Hierarchically Structured Magnetic Nanoconstructs with Enhanced Relaxivity and Cooperative Tumor Accumulation
Iron oxide nanoparticles are formidable multifunctional systems capable of contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging, guidance under remote fields, heat generation, and biodegradation. Yet, this potential is ...
