Studies of ferrite based magnetic nanoparticle uptake and magnetocytolysis effects on model cell cultures
Suspended ferrite magnetic nanoparticles are known to dissipate energy under an oscillating magnetic field. Such energy dissipation could be employed to locally raise temperature inside a tumor to 41-45°C (hyperthermia), ...
Enhanced potentiation of anticancer drugs using magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH): In vitro and in vivo studies
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of combined hyperthermia and anticancer drug treatments. Challenges related to effective heat transfer have limited its clinical application. The use of magnetic fluids ...
Towards the design of highly selective molecularly imprinted hydrogels for biosensor applications
Robust molecular recognition is essential to enhance the accuracy of diagnostic devices aiming for a better efficacy in the clinical treatment of patients. The molecular imprinting technique has gained attention to generate ...
Examination of the effect of PEG-Rich matrices in Multi Drug Resistance-Associated Protein (MRP) and Multi Drug Resistance (MDR) substrates transport utilizing the CaCo-2 Cell Model
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is responsible for the low absorption of a very wide range of drugs and has been recognized as one of the major hurdles in drug absorption. Crosslinked poly(ethylene glycol) based morphologies ...
Development of optimized therapeutic platforms for magnetic fluid hyperthermia in adjuvant cancer therapies
Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia (MFH) has a great potential as an adjuvant in cancer therapy, enhancing the effects of antineoplastic agents, sensitizing resistant cancers and reducing undesired side effects. When compared ...
