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 [...]

Elucidation of Neuroprotective Properties of Astrocytoma (Astrocytes-like) Cells in Neural Cell Culture Models In Vitro: Applications in Tissue Engineering and Nanotoxicology

, , , , , , ,
Evidence is accumulating that cell culture models in vitro facilitate high throughput and mechanistic studies in tissue engineering. We have developed several cell models for the systematic investigation of molecular mechanisms underlying the putative cytotoxicity [...]

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 [...]
