Lipid nanoparticles: tumor-targeting nanocargos for drug and contrast agent delivery

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
A new technology for the encapsulation of lipophilic molecules -both drugs and contrast agents dedicated to chemotherapy, phototherapy, or fluorescence imaging in oncology- has been developed, based on oil-in-water nanoemulsions. Thorough physico-chemical characterizations of the [...]

Evidence of the Anti-inflammatory effect of Silver- polyvinyl Pyrrolidone Nanoparticles (Ag-PVP) in Chlamydia trachomatis infected Macrophages and HeLa Cells

, , , , , , ,
Chlamydia trachomatis is the leading cause of bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the USA, and therefore, of major public health significance. C. trachomatis invades the mucosal surface of the female genital tract consequently triggering [...]

New in Vitro Strategy of Astrocytoma (Astrocytes-like) Cells Treated with Pioglitazone ( PPAR gamma agoinst) Offers Neuroprotection Against Nanoparticle-Induced Cytotoxity

, , , , , , ,
Recently, we and others have developed several cell models for the investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying the cytotoxicity of nanoparticles of several metallic and non-metallic oxides. These important findings have raised the awareness for [...]

Polymersomes as model of transcytosis across Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)

, , , ,
In this work, two formulations kinds of diblock copolymers ((poly(2- methacryloyloxy)ethyl phosphorylcholine)-co-poly(2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl methacrylate(PMPC25-­‐PDPA70) and poly(ethylene glycol)-co-poly(2- (diisopropylamino)ethyl methacrylate)(PEO113-­‐PDPA70))will be employed,blending them in series ratios in order to obtain the best morphology and size across the [...]
