In vitro and in vivo study of two types of long-circulating solid lipid nanoparticles containing paclitaxel. (1/2854)

Paclitaxel (Taxol), a diterpenoid isolated from Taxus brevifolia, is effective against several murine tumors, and is one of the most exciting anticancer molecules currently available. Due to its low solubility in water, it is clinically administered with polyethoxylated castor oil (Cremophor EL), which causes serious side effects. Inclusion of paclitaxel in solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) has proved to be a good approach to eliminate the need for Cremophor EL and improve the drug's antitumor efficacy. This paper describes the development of two types of long-circulating SLNs as colloidal carriers for paclitaxel. SLNs are constituted mainly of bioacceptable and biodegradable lipids. In vitro release kinetics showed that the release was very slow, the release of paclitaxel from F68-SLN is linear, and the release of paclitaxel from Brij78-SLN followed the Weibull equation. Pharmacokinetics was evaluated in KM mice after injection of paclitaxel formulated in Cremophor EL or in Brij78-SLN and F68-SLN. Encapsulation of paclitaxel in both SLNs produced marked differences compared with the free drug pharmacokinetics. F68-SLN and Brij78-SLN are long-circulating (t 1/2 beta, 10.06 and 4.88 h, respectively) compared with paclitaxel injection (t 1/2 beta, 1.36 h).  (+info)

Uptake of cyclosporine A loaded colloidal drug carriers by mouse peritoneal macrophages in vitro. (2/2854)

AIM: To investigate the uptake of cyclosporine A loaded colloidal drug carriers by mouse peritoneal macrophage (MPM) in vitro. METHODS: The [3H]cyclosporine A loaded colloidal particles: polylactic acid nanospheres, polylactic acid nanocapsules, and microemulsions were prepared. The [3H]cyclosporine A loaded colloidal particles were incubated with MPM for 30 min at 37 degrees C, then the cells were separated from the colloidal particles and the radioactivity was measured by a liquid scintillation counter. RESULTS: In comparison to the cyclosporine A solution, the binding to polylactic acid nanospheres produced a 20-fold increase in the uptake of cyclosporine A by MPM in 30 min incubation, whereas some obvious decrease in the uptake of cyclosporine A by MPM was observed in the binding of cyclosporine A with polylactic acid nanocapsules or microemulsions. The surfactant coating and plasma protein adsorption were found to have marked effects on the uptake of cyclosporine A loaded nanospheres by MPM. CONCLUSION: Our present study indicated that colloidal drug carriers might affect the targeting of cyclosporine A to mononuclear phagocyte system.  (+info)

PEGylated polycyanoacrylate nanoparticles as salvicine carriers: synthesis, preparation, and in vitro characterization. (3/2854)

AIM: To synthesized poly(methoxypolyethyleneglycol cyanoacrylate-co-n-hexadecyl cyanoacrylate) (PEGylated PHDCA) with polyethylene glycol (PEG, Mr = 5000), prepare PEGylated PHDCA and poly(n-hexadecyl cyanoacrylate) (PHDCA) nanoparticles loading salvicine and determine their in vitro characterizations. METHODS: The structure of PEGylated PHDCA was determined with 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FTIR). Its molecular weight was determined by gel permeation chromatography (GPC). Nanoparticles were prepared by emulsion/solvent evaporation method. RESULTS: 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and FTIR were consistent with structure of PEGylated PHDCA, whose average molecular weight is 6680. Entrapment efficiency could be determined by high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) method without endogenous interference at the retention time of salvicine. The entrapment efficiency was 92.6 % for PEGylated PHDCA nanoparticles and 98.9 % for PHDCA nanoparticles. The nanoparticles size was about 250 nm. The values of the zeta potential were obviously influenced by the composition of the copolymer. Compared with PHDCA nanoparticles (-23.1 mV), PEGylated PHDCA nanoparticles showed a low surface potential (-9.6 mV). Salvicine release from nanoparticles showed an initial burst effect, then a plateau for an extended period, and finally sustained release phase. CONCLUSION: These results showed that the PEGylated PHDCA nanoparticles could be an effective carrier for salvicine delivery in the respect of anti-tumor potency.  (+info)

In vitro and in vivo evaluation of oral heparin-loaded polymeric nanoparticles in rabbits. (4/2854)

BACKGROUND: Owing to its short half-life and lack of oral absorption, heparin has to be administered by the parenteral route. An oral heparin formulation, however, would avoid the disadvantages of parenteral injections and would consequently be highly desirable for patients. Polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) prepared with biodegradable poly-epsilon-caprolactone (PCL) and poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and nonbiodegradable positively charged polymers (Eudragit RS and RL), used alone or in combination, were evaluated in vitro and in vivo after a single oral administration of heparin-loaded NPs in rabbits. METHODS AND RESULTS: After oral administration of heparin-loaded NPs in rabbits (600 IU/kg), increases in both anti-factor Xa activity and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) were detected with each formulation. Moreover, the anti-Xa activity was detected for a longer period than when a heparin solution was administered intravenously. A peak concentration of 0.16+/-0.01 IU/mL and an average aPTT of 24 seconds (2-fold increase) were obtained 7 hours after oral dosing of Eudragit RL/PCL NPs containing heparin, exhibiting an absolute bioavailability of 23%. CONCLUSIONS: The significant increases in anti-factor Xa activity and aPTT confirmed the oral absorption in rabbits of heparin released from polymeric NPs.  (+info)

Protein nanoarrays generated by dip-pen nanolithography. (5/2854)

Dip-pen nanolithography was used to construct arrays of proteins with 100- to 350-nanometer features. These nanoarrays exhibit almost no detectable nonspecific binding of proteins to their passivated portions even in complex mixtures of proteins, and therefore provide the opportunity to study a variety of surface-mediated biological recognition processes. For example, reactions involving the protein features and antigens in complex solutions can be screened easily by atomic force microscopy. As further proof-of-concept, these arrays were used to study cellular adhesion at the submicrometer scale.  (+info)

Magnetofection: enhancing and targeting gene delivery by magnetic force in vitro and in vivo. (6/2854)

Low efficiencies of nonviral gene vectors, the receptor-dependent host tropism of adenoviral or low titers of retroviral vectors limit their utility in gene therapy. To overcome these deficiencies, we associated gene vectors with superparamagnetic nanoparticles and targeted gene delivery by application of a magnetic field. This potentiated the efficacy of any vector up to several hundred-fold, allowed reduction of the duration of gene delivery to minutes, extended the host tropism of adenoviral vectors to nonpermissive cells and compensated for low retroviral titer. More importantly, the high transduction efficiency observed in vitro was reproduced in vivo with magnetic field-guided local transfection in the gastrointestinal tract and in blood vessels. Magnetofection provides a novel tool for high throughput gene screening in vitro and can help to overcome fundamental limitations to gene therapy in vivo.  (+info)

Array-based electrical detection of DNA with nanoparticle probes. (7/2854)

A DNA array detection method is reported in which the binding of oligonucleotides functionalized with gold nanoparticles leads to conductivity changes associated with target-probe binding events. The binding events localize gold nanoparticles in an electrode gap; silver deposition facilitated by these nanoparticles bridges the gap and leads to readily measurable conductivity changes. An unusual salt concentration-dependent hybridization behavior associated with these nanoparticle probes was exploited to achieve selectivity without a thermal-stringency wash. Using this method, we have detected target DNA at concentrations as low as 500 femtomolar with a point mutation selectivity factor of approximately 100,000:1.  (+info)

Micro/nano encapsulation via electrified coaxial liquid jets. (8/2854)

We report a method to generate steady coaxial jets of immiscible liquids with diameters in the range of micrometer/nanometer size. This compound jet is generated by the action of electro-hydrodynamic (EHD) forces with a diameter that ranges from tens of nanometers to tens of micrometers. The eventual jet breakup results in an aerosol of monodisperse compound droplets with the outer liquid surrounding or encapsulating the inner one. Following this approach, we have produced monodisperse capsules with diameters varying between 10 and 0.15 micrometers, depending on the running parameters.  (+info)

Nanotechnology - Nanofabrication: Two very different paths are pursued. One is a top-down strategy of miniaturizing current technologies, while the other is a bottom-up strategy of building ever-more-complex molecular devices atom by atom. Top-down approaches are good for producing structures with long-range order and for making macroscopic connections, while bottom-up approaches are best suited for assembly and establishing short-range order at nanoscale dimensions. The integration of top-down and bottom-up techniques is expected to eventually provide the best combination of tools for nanofabrication. Nanotechnology requires new tools for fabrication and measurement. The most common top-down approach to fabrication involves lithographic patterning techniques using short-wavelength
As much as wed like to believe the myth that nanotechnology is the collaboration of billions of tiny robots repairing our skin, our vehicles or the fabrics in our clothes, the science is much more palatable. Since nanotechnology is the study and application of extremely small things, this means scientists can control particles on an atomic and molecular scale, resulting in measurements of 1 - 100 nanometres across. To put this into perspective, a sheet of newspaper is about 100,000 nanometres in thickness. As you can imagine, were talking about technology on a minute scale. So, toss away your preconceptions of nanotechnology - this isnt your next apocalyptic sci-fi film. Nanotechnology didnt make itself known during the smart technology era, either.

Nanotechnology 101: Where can I find such a course? Many students have asked what they should study to prepare for careers in nanotechnology. Giving a decent answer requires outlining the different fields of research that fall under the nanotechnology umbrella and describing the background knowledge required to work in them. It also seems wise to say something about the different levels of knowledge and modes of learning that are relevant to such a broad, interdisciplinary area. The following is a personal view, based on what I have learned (and wished I had learned), and on how learning in these areas seems to work best. Fields of research Nanotechnology will mean complete control of the structure of matter, building complex objects with molecular precision. It doesnt exist yet, because we dont have molecular assemblers yet. Work related to nanotechnology accordingly falls into two broad areas: the study of nanotechnology itself (which must remain theoretical, for the time being) and research ...

These criteria can be applied to nanotechnology. For nanotechnology, reliability and stability are crucial. For computers scalability means being able to expand to deal with more users and more information, and somewhat similar concerns arise if designs are used to produce multitudes of tiny nanomachines. Peer review may be essential to detect and correct errors. Companies using nanotechnology to produce other goods and services may prefer open source, to avoid dependence on a single supplier who keeps software secret. Common standards and infrastructure would promote cumulative development of the technology. It is not yet clear the extent to which nanotechnology may rely on commonly known procedures or unique techniques, but most of the foundations may well be developed as openly shared scientific knowledge.20 It would seem that the rationale for open source would apply strongly in the case of nanotechnology, particularly if the principal products will not be the production equipment, ...

A need exists to target cancer treatments specifically to the tumor site, without damaging healthy tissue. This need can be achieved through the proper application of nanotechnology, namely gold nanoparticles conjugated to Folate. Folate is an essential nutrient required for DNA replication, and is internalized by cells through the Folate-Receptor. Since malignant cancers undergo rapid DNA replication, their need for Folate is increased beyond normal cells and therefore over express the Folate-Receptor. This cell surface receptor is an excellent target for delivery of a nanoparticle based therapy. Our method is to deliver gold nanoparticles to cancer cells via the Folate-Receptor after which intense pulsed light (IPL) is used to cause photothermal destruction of the cancer cell. We have shown that the gold nanoparticles themselves are non-toxic in two cancer cell lines, HeLa (Folate-Receptor over expressing) and MCF7 (Folate-Receptor non-over expressing), as well as that these cells can withstand up to
Nanotechnology is any technology that has at least one dimension in the range of 1nm to 100nm. Nanotechnology is very old dating at least to the use of stained glass windows in medieval times (around 1100 AD) and probably earlier. This was a use of nanotechnology by serendipity. Recently nanotechnology has grown because of the discovery (1985) and eventual production of buckyball (buckminsterfullerene, C60). A buckyball is a truncated icosahedron and looks like a football (soccer ball - in particular the Telstar). Its diameter is actually only 0.7 nm but any practical application would be greater than that diameter pushing into the nanotechnology definition.. This is still under construction, however I have links below that are pretty cool.. ...
Nanotechnology and Food: Answers from IFT Experts Q. What is nanotechnology? A. The term nanotechnology is derived from the nanometer scale of measurement, which is equivalent to one‐billionth of a meter. There are many definitions for nanotechnology but the most commonly referenced one is that of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) ― Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at dimensions between approximately 1 and 100 nanometers where unique phenomena enable novel applications.. Q. How did nanotechnology start? A. Nanoscience and nanotechnology as a field of research and development is relatively new but the main concepts related to nanotechnology have developed over a long period of time. The term nanotechnology is believed to have been coined by Norio Taniguchi, a professor at Tokyo Science University, to describe the ability to manufacture highly accurate semiconductor devices at the nanometer scale. Research in the field began in individual research ...
The growing area of study broadly termed nanotechnology provides a new set of challenges to the facility designer. While evolutionary changes in the quality of clean spaces occur, it is the collaborative nature of this field that requires revolutionary changes in facility design. The main challenge is to accommodate areas of a facility with quite different technological needs, and to design and locate them such that clashes in technology are avoided. The Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University is a recent facility that was designed and constructed to accommodate the diverse needs of nanotechnology research, and is currently in full operation. This case study discusses the decision points in the design of a nanotechnology research facility and their effect on the implementation of this facility. Of particular interest is the conjoining of a semiconductor/MEMS nanofabrication cleanroom with a pharmaceutical-style biocleanroom.
Ian Barbour in Ethics in an Age of Technology suggests three key interpreters of scientific developments: Technology as Liberator, Threat and Instruments of Power.. Nanotechnology as Liberator involves exercises in human creativity; prudent application of the principal of due proportion between risks, benefits, expense (industrial and societal) and the physical, moral and spiritual impact of this technology on the human being; a sense of duty to the common good of UK society as well as the global common good of developing countries who could benefit from Nanotechnology.. Nanotechnology as Threat involves concerns about self-replicating organisms, nanoviruses, the reconfiguration of life-forms in nature, a potential depersonalisation of human life, and issues surrounding security, military applications and nanoterrorism.. Nanotechnology as an Instrument of Power involves concerns about the emergence of a nanotechnocracy; the possibility of the structures within nature being copyrighted when ...

A couple of weeks ago I took part in a dialogue meeting in Brussels organised by the CIAA, the Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries of the EU, about nanotechnology in food. The meeting involved representatives from big food companies, from the European Commission and agencies like the European Food Safety Association, together with consumer groups like BEUC, and the campaigning group Friends of the Earth Europe. The latter group recently released a report on food nanotechnology - Out of the laboratory and on to our plates: Nanotechnology in food and agriculture; according to the press release, this reveals that despite concerns about the toxicity risks of nanomaterials, consumers are unknowingly ingesting them because regulators are struggling to keep pace with their rapidly expanding use. The position of the CIAA is essentially that nanotechnology is an interesting technology currently in research rather than having yet made it into products. One can get a good idea of the research ...
Like the National Cancer Institute (NCI), we believe that nanoscience applied to cancer research is critical to the future of eliminating cancer, and we are convinced that nanotechnology will make a significant impact on cancer diagnosis and management in potentially revolutionary ways. Ex vivo diagnostics used in conjunction with in vivo diagnostics can markedly impact future cancer patient management by providing a synergy that neither strategy alone can offer. Nanotechnology can significantly advance both ex vivo diagnostics through proteomic nanosensors and in vivo diagnostics through nanoparticles for molecular imaging. Yet there is still much work to be done because clinical tools have not been developed that can help oncologists reliably to predict which patients will respond to a specific anti-cancer therapy regimen and to monitor patients responses while undergoing a given therapy. Without these tools, many patients must endure multiple therapies until a successful therapeutic regime ...

Scientists at the University of the Free State (UFS) made an important breakthrough in the use of nanotechnology in medical and biological research. The UFS teams research has been accepted for publication by the internationally accredited Canadian Journal of Microbiology.. The UFS study dissected yeast cells exposed to over-used cooking oil by peeling microscopically thin layers off the yeast cells through the use of nanotechnology.. The yeast cells were enlarged thousands of times to study what was going on inside the cells, whilst at the same time establishing the chemical elements the cells are composed of. This was done by making microscopically small surgical incisions into the cell walls.. This groundbreaking research opens up a host of new uses for nanotechnology, as it was the first study ever in which biological cells were surgically manipulated and at the same time elemental analysis performed through nanotechnology. According to Prof. Lodewyk Kock, head of the Division Lipid ...

Nanotechnology is a field of applied sciences and technologies involving the control of matter on the atomic and molecular scale, normally below 100 nanometers. Nanomaterials may exhibit different physical and chemical properties compared with the same substances at normal scale, such as increased chemical reactivity due to greater surface area.. Nanotechnologies enable the management of food ingredients on a molecular level. Nanotechnology products could have a substantial impact on the food and feed sector in the future, potentially offering benefits for industry and the consumer, although possible risks need to be considered. Companies and institutes worldwide are currently researching and developing applications in fields such as the treatment of the mechanical and sensorial properties of food - for instance to achieve changed taste or texture - and modified nutritional value. Nanotechnology may also be used in food packaging, for instance to ensure better protection or to detect how fresh ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Direct atomic force microscopy observation of DNA tile crystal growth at the single-molecule level. AU - Evans, Constantine G.. AU - Hariadi, Rizal F.. AU - Winfree, Erik. PY - 2012/6/27. Y1 - 2012/6/27. N2 - While the theoretical implications of models of DNA tile self-assembly have been extensively researched and such models have been used to design DNA tile systems for use in experiments, there has been little research testing the fundamental assumptions of those models. In this paper, we use direct observation of individual tile attachments and detachments of two DNA tile systems on a mica surface imaged with an atomic force microscope (AFM) to compile statistics of tile attachments and detachments. We show that these statistics fit the widely used kinetic Tile Assembly Model and demonstrate AFM movies as a viable technique for directly investigating DNA tile systems during growth rather than after assembly.. AB - While the theoretical implications of models of DNA tile ...
This is the beginning in a series of quizzes on Nanoscience that I created. Just click on the START QUIZ button below - there are 10 questions worth 1 point each.. I have developed these nanotechnology quizzes as I am dissatisfied with the current ones found on the Internet. They are often either needlessly specific (what is the patent number for the nanomagnetic product being worked on by Rice University as a cure for hangovers) or are outdated as advances have been made since the quiz was published. Also, I hate multiple choice problems where they give you three silly options and one obviously correct answer. The goal should be to make you think carefully and to really test your knowledge.. And if you are up to the challenge for tougher quizzes on nanotechnology, please check out:. Enjoy! - Joel-Anthony Gray. ...

A poll in September 18s Globe and Mail (national newspaper) asked Canadians, Should our Governments promote Canadian leadership in burgeoning nanotechnology research? 88 per cent of the 1,000 responders thought so.. On a personal note, I found the whole notion of a poll on nanotechnology a little surprising as there has been relatively little coverage of the ethical/ social issues surrounding nanotechnology in the Canadian media (except for a short run of pieces at the launch of the Mind the Gap and Big Down reports). It should be noted that this poll appeared in the technology section of the paper alongside an article on nano-computers which rather glossed over concerns about a nanofuture spinning out of control, yet highlighted the relatively little being spent by the Canadian Government on nanotech (it suggested a figure of C$50 million).. According to Tim Caulfield, compared with issues such as genetics and stem cells, there has been little Canadian public or media reaction yet on the ...

Nanomaterials are attracting an interest of many researches. All this attention is due the unique physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials differing significantly from the bulk materials mainly due to their size in range of nanometers. Capillary electrophoresis (CE) is a powerful, well-established analytical technique that provides numerous valuable benefits over other separation methods including high-performance liquid chromatography. The connection between CE and nanotechnology can be approached by two strategies: (i) CE analysis of nanomaterials and (ii) nanomaterials for CE improvement. The first perspective focuses on uses of CE as a method for characterization employed during nanomaterial production and modification as well as for monitoring their properties and interactions with other molecules. The second viewpoint deals with applications of nanomaterials for improving CE performance, mainly by enhancing efficiency of separation using nanomaterials as a stationary or pseudo-stationary

AU - Claesson, Per M.. AU - Thormann, Esben. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Paper coating formulations containing starch, latex, and clay were applied to paperboard and have been investigated by scanning electron microscopy and Peak Force tapping atomic force microscopy. A special focus has been on the measurement of the variation of the surface topography and surface material properties with a nanometer scaled spatial resolution. The effects of coating composition and drying conditions were investigated. It is concluded that the air-coating interface of the coating is dominated by close-packed latex particles embedded in a starch matrix and that the spatial distribution of the different components in the coating can be identified due to their variation in material properties. Drying the coating at an ...
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in DNA Nanotechnology applied to Molecular Additive Manufacture.. We propose to demonstrate a first-generation molecular printer, a prototype system for atomically precise manufacturing that seeks to produce materials and devices with each atom in its designated position. The molecular printer will use externally programmed motion to enable construction by site-specific chemical additions and modifications to a workpiece. We envision first-generation molecular printers implemented as DNA origami frameworks constructed with sub-nanometre precision by self-assembly. These prototypes will be actuated by cycles of DNA strand displacement and will achieve positioning accuracies on the order of one nanometre. They will allow exploration of the potential of molecular additive manufacture, with the aim of initiating a process of technological development which will continue until atomically precise construction becomes a practical ...

Books Biofunctionalization of Nanomaterials Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences, Vol. 1 Edited by Challa Kumar. Wiley-VCH, Weinheim 2005. 425 pp., hardcover E 139.00.-ISBN 3-527-31381-8 With this first volume, Biofunctionalization of Nanomaterials, Wiley-VCH and the editor, Challa Kumar, introduce a series that has an ambitious aim. The plan is for a ten-volume encyclopedia that will collect together and critically evaluate all aspects of the current state of knowledge about the use of nanotechnology in the life sciences. This is certainly one of the most dynamic areas of research at present, and therefore to attempt a comprehensive summary and evaluation is a challenging task. Moreover, this field has the distinction that, perhaps more than any other current area of research, it has inputs from chemistry, biology, biochemistry, materials science, and physics. Therefore, it is important that the knowledge must be communicated in a way that extends beyond the boundaries of the classical ...
Nanostructured materials are promising compounds that offer new opportunities as sensing platforms for the detection of biomolecules. Having micrometer-scale length and nanometer-scale diameters, nanomaterials can be manipulated with current nanofabrication methods, as well as self-assembly techniques, to fabricate nanoscale bio-sensing devices. Nanostructured materials possess extraordinary physical, mechanical, electrical, thermal and multifunctional properties. Such unique properties advocate their use as biomimetic membranes to immobilize and modify biomolecules on the surface of nanoparticles.
