Development of peptide conjugated Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide (SPIO) Nanoparticles for Targeted MR Imaging and Therapy of Pancreatic Cancer

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
We have engineered superparamagnetic iron oxide (IO) nanoparticles targeted to urokinase plasminogen receptors (uPAR), which is highly expressed in tumor cells, intratumoral fibroblasts and tumor endothelial cells and can also be internalized by cells. IO [...]

Laser Heating of Sulphuretted Carbon Nanoparticles Inhibits Tumor Growth

, , , , , , , , , ,
Light-absorbing nanoparticles incorporated in a tissue can be heated by short-pulsed laser irradiation up to several thousand Kelvin degrees. Average tissue temperature may be kept normal if the concentration of these particles is low. Antitumor [...]
