Contrasting agent for magnetic resonance imaging based on nanostructural dispersion of Manganese derivative of phthalocyanine: preliminary investigation results

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Contrast agents (CA) are used to increase tumor contrasting in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The work is devoted to estimation of Manganese chloride tetra-3-phenylthio-tetra-5-tert-buthylphthalocyanine [3-(PhS)4-5-(t-Bu)4PcMnCl] as potential CA for MRI. We have developed the micellar [...]

New efficient nanostructural near-IR photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy of malignancies based on micellar dispersion of zinc octa-4,5-decylthio-3,6-chloro-phthalocyanine

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
The work is devoted to investigation of new nanostructural photosensitizer on a base of zinc octa-4,5-decylthio-3,6-chloro-phthalocyanine solubilized in micellar dispersion. Photosensitizer possesses its absorption maximum at about 730 nm and can be considered promising for [...]

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 [...]
