Targeting pancreatic cancer with magneto-fluorescent theranostic gold nanoshells
(Future Medicine, 2014)
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 ...
Relaxivity Enhancement of Aquated Tris(β-diketonate)gadolinium(III) Chelates by Confinement within Ultrashort Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2014)
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 ...
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 ...
