 An electrohydrodynamic atomization (EHDA) system that generates an electrospray can achieve particle formation and encapsulation by accumulating an electric charge on liquid flowing out from the nozzle. A novel coaxial EHDA system for continuous fabrication of water-stable magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) is established, based on a cone-jet mode of electrospraying. Systemic variables, such as flow rates from dual nozzles and inducing voltages, are controlled to enable the preparation of water-soluble MNPs coated by polysorbate 80. The PEGylated MNPs exhibit water stability. The magnetic resonance imaging potential of these MNPs is confirmed by in vivo imaging using a gastric cancer xenograft mouse model. Thus, this advanced coaxial EHDA system demonstrates remarkable capabilities for the continuous encapsulation of MNPs to render them water-stable while preserving their properties as imaging agents.

 We have developed a nanovector consisting of hyaluronic acid (HA) and poly-L-lysine-graft-imidazole (PLI)-based polyplexes containing Bcl-xL-specific shRNA-encoding plasmid DNA (HA/PLI/pDNA) for CD44 targeted gastric cancer therapy. The prepared ternary polyplexes have a negative surface charge of  24 mV and a size of approximately 100 nm at an N/P ratio of 5 with HA/PLI molar ratio of 0.03. Gel electrophoresis and cell viability experiments demonstrated that the ternary polyplexes showed high stability and no cytotoxicity due to the anchored HA molecules on the surface of PLI/pDNA binary polyplexes. Selective cancer cell death was achieved by CD44-mediated gene delivery and the internalized gene was effectively escaped from endosomes due to the buffering capacity of imidazole groups in an acidic environment. These nanovectors may be highly efficient gene delivery tools that allow the selective destruction of metastatic gastric cancer cells.

  Combined cancer treatment via co-delivery of siRNAs and an anticancer drug can be a promising strategy due to the synergistic effect of simultaneously minimizing gene/drug administration. In this study, Bcl-xL siRNA and doxorubicin (DOX) are encapsulated into designed methoxy-poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(D,L-lactic acid) (mPEG-b-PLA) block copolymer polymersomes (PSomes). A study of the cytotoxicity of Bcl-xL siRNA and DOX co-encapsulated PSomes (CPSomes) shows more inhibited proliferation of MKN-45 and MKN-28 human gastric cancer cell lines than only gene- and drug-loaded ones. Consequently, these results demonstrate that co-delivery of genes and drugs using PSomes results in a synergistic efficacy and indicates the potential of PSomes as efficient nanocarriers for combined cancer therapy.

게재년월 : 2013.05  Nanoparticles have been investigated as drug carriers, because they provide a great opportunity due to their advantageous features: (i) various formulations using organic/inorganic materials, (ii) easy modification of targeting molecules, drugs or other molecules on them, (iii) effective delivery to target sites, resulting in high therapeutic efficacy and (iv) controlling drug release by external/internal stimuli. Because of these features, therapeutic efficacy can be improved and unwanted side effects can be reduced. Theranostic nanoparticles have been developed by incorporating imaging agents in drug carriers as all-in-one system, which makes it possible to diagnose and treat cancer by monitoring drug delivery behavior simultaneously. Recently, stimuli-responsive, activatable nanomaterials are being applied that are capable of producing chemical or physical changes by external stimuli. By using these nanoparticles, multiple tasks can be carried out simultaneously, e.g., early and accurate diagnosis, efficient cataloguing of patient groups of personalized therapy and real-time monitoring of disease progress. In this paper, we describe various types of nanoparticles for drug delivery systems, as well as theranostic systems.

We describe a near-infrared-sensitive molecular imaging probe based on hydrogel complexes that can target a stem-like gastric cancer cell marker (CD44, a marker that often correlates with a poor prognosis in patients). Thus, CD44-targetable and near-infrared-sensitive supramolecular hydrogels (NIRSHs, Cy5.5-conjugated polyethyleneimine/hyaluronic acid polyplexes) were fabricated by polyplexing in an aqueous medium. NIRSHs demonstrated good water-stability, biocompatibility, and specificity to CD44-expressing stem-like gastric cancer cells. Furthermore, NIR-sensitive in vivo imaging potentials of CD44-targetable NIRSHs for heterotopic/orthotopic xenograft mouse models were investigated.

Targeted molecular imaging with hyaluronic acid (HA) has been highlighted in the diagnosis and treatment of CD44-overexpressing cancer. CD44, a receptor for HA, is closely related to the growth of cancer including proliferation, metastasis, invasion, and angiogenesis. For the efficient detection of CD44, we fabricated a few kinds of HA-modified MnFe2O4 nanocrystals (MNCs) to serve as specific magnetic resonance (MR) contrast agents (HA-MRCAs) and compared physicochemical properties, biocompatibility, and the CD44 targeting efficiency. Hydrophobic MNCs were efficiently phase-transferred using aminated polysorbate 80 (P80) synthesized by introducing spermine molecules on the hydroxyl groups of P80. Subsequently, a few kinds of HA-MRCAs were fabricated, conjugating different ratios of HA on the equal amount of phase-transferred MNCs. The optimized conjugation ratio of HA against magnetic content was identified to exhibit not only effective CD44 finding ability but also high cell viability through in vitro experiments. The results of this study demonstrate that the suggested HA-MRCA shows strong potential to be used for accurate tumor diagnosis.

Fabrication of one dimensional metal nanomaterials offers many beneficial aspects due to their unique size- and shape-dependent characteristics. However, facile fabrication of a robust one dimensional nanostructure has still remained a great challenge. Here, we developed a new synthetic route of onestep electrochemical deposition of silver nanograss without the assistance of a template. By applying an overpotential of  2.0 V (vs. Ag/AgCl) under aqueous alkaline conditions, silver nanograss with a slight tilt in a randomly oriented direction was spontaneously formed on the working electrode surface. Two applications that utilize advantageous features of this silver nanograss were demonstrated: (i) an efficient surface-enhanced Raman scattering substrate for a chemical sensor and (ii) an enzyme-less hydrogen peroxide sensor. Compared to silver nanowire arrays fabricated using anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) templates, the silver nanograss exhibited comparable hydrogen sensing due to its catalytic hydrogen peroxide reduction activity and produced a much stronger surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) signal due to its innate structure.

 We describe the preparation of superparamagnetic nanoclusters (SNCs) by fine-tuning of the seed Fe3O4 nanoparticle sizes to enhance and their T2 relaxivity can be increased by > 4-fold. Therefore, with 11 nm seed core and PVA coating, SNC-11 exhibit a higher T2 relaxivity than other cluster condition. So fabricating the cluster, seed size is the most important influence the T2 relaxivity. As well as, in vitro cellular imaging results demonstrated the strong potential of SNCs for clinical applications by targeting affinity. According to the experiments, with 11 nm seed core and PVA coating, SNC-11 exhibited the highest T2 relaxivity of 454 mM-1s-1 due to the strong seed size effect on their magnetic sensitivity, indicating superior magnetic resonance (MR) contrast efficiency. Further in vitro cellular imaging results demonstrated the strong potential of SNCs for clinical applications.

게재년월 : 2013.02 Magnetic nanoclusters (MNCs) are agglomerated individual magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) that show great promise in increasing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensitivity. Here, we report an effective strategy to engineer MNCs based on double-ligand modulation to enhance MRI sensitivity. The oleic acid-coated individual MNPs self-assembled and then were enveloped by polysorbate 80, using a nanoemulsion method to prepare MNCs. By modulating the amounts of the two ligands, and thus the size and magnetic content of the resultant MNCs, we were able to enormously improve MRI sensitivity.
