Cytotoxicity of metallic oxide nanoparticles in human neural and non-neural cells

, , , , , , , ,
The use of nanomaterials in industrial applications (e.g., drug delivery, additives to drugs and cosmetics) has escalated in the last decade, leading to the possibility of their becoming environmental pollutants. However, these cytotoxic and other [...]

Hybrid Nanoparticles Targeted by Antitumor Antibodies and Emitting Alpha-particles

, , , , , , ,
We describe a new therapeutic nanoparticle’s design, which consists of three parts: targeting, effecter and linker. Targeting part: an anti-HER2/neu mini-antibody-barnase fusion protein (4D5 scFv-barnase-His5). The anti-HER2/neu mini-antibody could be used to deliver barnase to [...]
