The scavenging of reactive oxygen species and the potential for cell protection by fullerenols with different isoelectric points

, , , , , , , , , ,
Fullerenols were known as the major water-soluble derivatives of fullerene that possess particular significance biological effects such as anticancer active and free radical scavengers. We have reported a novel method for purifying nanoparticles of fullerenols, [...]

Intracellular Uptake of Folate Receptor Targeted Superparamagnetic Nanoparticles for Enhanced Tumor Detection by MRI

, , , , , , , , ,
Tumor specific superparamagnetic nanoparticle conjugates are currently being developed as targeting-contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The application of such “smart” molecular imaging probes will have a significant clinical impact as a non-invasive method [...]
