    The uptake of lipoproteins by macrophages is a critical step in the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Cultured monocyte-derived macrophages take up large amounts of native LDL by receptor-independent fluid-phase pinocytosis, either constitutively or in response to specific activating...

    Background Because of the need to limit side-effects, nanoparticles are increasingly being studied as drugcarrying and targeting tools. We have previously reported on a scheme to produce proteinbased self-assembling nanoparticles that can act as antigen display platforms. Here we attempted to...

    Extended circulation of nanoparticles in blood is essential for most clinical applications. Nanoparticles are rapidly cleared by cells of the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS). Approaches such as grafting polyethylene glycol onto particles (PEGylation) extend circulation times; however, these...

    A new quantum dot (QD) PEGylated micelle laced with phosphatidylserine (PS) for specific scavenger receptor-mediated uptake by macrophages is reported. The size and surface chemistry of PS-QD micelles were characterized by standard methods and the effects of their physicochemical properties on...

    Intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of small interfering RNA (siRNA) has, to date, shown promise in treating tumours located within the peritoneal cavity. The ability of these siRNA molecules to reach extraperitoneal tumours following i.p. administration is, however, yet to be investigated....

    Penetration of pegylated (enveloped in polyethylene glycol) gold nanoparticles 5 and 30 nm in diameter through the placental barrier was studied in pregnant rats injected intravenously with these particles in a dose of about 0.8 mg Au/kg on day 10 of gestation. The particles were visualized in...

    Abstract: Adenoviruses are robust gene delivery vectors in vivo, but are limited by their propensity to provoke strong innate and adaptive responses. Previous work has demonstrated that polyethylene glycol (PEG) modification of adenovirus can protect the vectors from preexisting and adaptive...

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to design stimuli-responsive nanocarriers for anti-cancer drug delivery. For this purpose, doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded, polysebacic anhydride (PSA) based nanocapsules (NC) were combined with pH-sensitive poly (L-histidine) (PLH). Method: PSA nano-carriers were...

    Colloidal gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have been considered an established advanced tool in biomedicine thanks to their physicochemical properties combined with nanoscale size ideal for the interrogation of biological systems. However, such properties are believed to be a possible major cause of...
