Activity and Pharmacology of Homemade Silver Nanoparticles in Refractory Metastatic Head and Neck Squamous Cell Cancer (Wiley, 2018-12-11)Background Silver nanoparticles (AgNP) show efficacy in cancer cell lines. We present the first in-human outcome of AgNP in a cancer patient. Methods Homemade AgNP solution is manufactured using online instructions by a ...
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2019-05-14)Precise control of in vivo transport of anticancer drugs in normal and cancerous tissues with engineered nanoparticles is key to the future success of cancer nanomedicines in clinics. This requires a fundamental understanding ...
Noninvasive monitoring of kidney elimination of engineered nanoparticles at high temporal and spatial resolution will not only significantly advance our fundamental understandings of nephrology on the nanoscale, but also ...
Kidneys are a major organ for blood filtration and waste elimination and thus play a key role in the transport and clearance of nanoparticles in vivo. The interactions of nanoparticles with different kidney compartments ...
Physiological Stability and Renal Clearance of Ultrasmall Zwitterionic Gold Nanoparticles: Ligand Length Matters (American Institute of Physics, 2017-03-15)Efficient renal clearance has been observed from ultrasmall zwitterionic glutathione-coated gold nanoparticles (GS-AuNPs), which have broad preclinical applications in cancer diagnosis and kidney functional imaging. However, ...
