While hyperthermia has been shown to induce a variety of cytotoxic and sensitizing effects on cancer tissues, the thermal dose–effect relationship is still not well quantified, and it is still unclear how it can be optimally combined with other treatment modalities. Additionally, it is speculated that different methods of applying...

In this review, the chemical mechanisms behind the interactions between boronic acids and N-acetylneuraminic acids, which have been widely utilized in biomedicine in recent decades, will be examined. It will also be highlighted that the affinity of boronic acids for N-acetylneuraminic acids is dependent on pH and is complementary to their...

Porous materials, such as zeolites, have great potential for biomedical applications, thanks to their ability to accommodate positively charged metal-ions and their facile surface functionalization. Although the latter aspect is important to endow the nanoparticles with chemical/colloidal stability and desired biological properties, the...

Heterostructured magnetic nanoparticles show great potential for numerous applications in biomedicine due to their ability to express multiple functionalities in a single structure. Magnetic properties are generally determined by the morphological characteristics of nanoparticles, such as the size/shape, and composition of the nanocrystals....

Background: Treatment of early-stage breast cancer currently includes surgical removal of the tumor and (partial) breast irradiation of the tumor site performed at fractionated dose. Although highly effective, this treatment is exhaustive for both patient and clinic. In this study, the theoretical potential of an alternative treatment combining...

It is known that phenylboronic acid (PBA) can target tumor tissues by binding to sialic acid, a substrate overexpressed by cancer cells. This capability has previously been explored in the design of targeting diagnostic probes such as Gd- and 68Ga-DOTA-EN-PBA, two contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission...

In the periodical system, the lanthanides (the 15 elements in the periodic table between barium and hafnium) are unique in the sense that their trivalent cations have their valence electrons hidden behind the 5s and 5p electrons. They show a gradual decrease in ionic radius with increasing atomic number (also known as the lanthanide...

Paramagnetic macrocycles functionalized with phenylboronic moieties have proven to be interesting for MRI applications based on their ability to recognize cancer cells and generate local contrast. However, full use of the potential of this class of compounds is hampered by laborious and inefficient synthetic and, especially, purification...

Mesoporous materials are of vital importance for use in separation, adsorption, and catalysis. The first step in their preparation consists of synthesizing an organic-inorganic hybrid in which a structuring directing agent (SDA, normally a surfactant) is used to provide the desired porosity. The most common method to eliminate the SDA, and...

It is well-known that energy-rich radiation induces water splitting, eventually yielding hydrogen peroxide. Synthetic applications, however, are scarce and to the best of our knowledge, the combination of radioactivity with enzyme-catalysis has not been considered yet. Peroxygenases utilize H2O2 as an oxidant to promote highly selective...

Radiation therapy has made tremendous progress in oncology over the last decades due to advances in engineering and physical sciences in combination with better biochemical, genetic and molecular understanding of this disease. Local delivery of optimal radiation dose to a tumor, while sparing healthy surrounding tissues, remains a great...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to demonstrate the potential of Ga-68-labeled macrocycle (DOTA-en-pba) conjugated with phenylboronic vector for tumor recognition by positron emission tomography (PET), based on targeting of the overexpressed sialic acid (Sia). Procedures: The imaging reporter DOTA-en-pba was synthesized and labeled with Ga...

Self-aggregating calix[4]arenes carrying four DOTA ligands on the upper rim for stable complexation of paramagnetic GdIII-ions have already been proposed as MRI probes. In this work, we investigate the luminescence properties of TbIII-DOTA-calix[4]arene-4OPr containing four propyl-groups and compare them with those of the analog substituted with...

Surface PEGylation of nanoparticles designed for biomedical applications is a common and straightforward way to stabilize the materials for in vivo administration and to increase their circulation time. This strategy becomes less trivial when MRI active porous nanomaterials are concerned as their function relies on water/proton-exchange between...

Among the procedures to prepare lanthanide-containing nanoparticles a gap exists in the range between 5 and 40 nm. The miniemulsion technique presented here is intended to fill this discontinuity and offers a facile method that can be applied for the preparation of nanoparticles for various applications, e.g. medical imaging, optics and...

Magnetic and fluorescent hydroxyapatite nanoparticles were synthesised using Al(OH)3-stabilised MnFe2O4 or Fe3O4 nanoparticles as precursors. They were readily and efficiently radiolabelled with 18F. Bisphosphonate polyethylene glycol polymers were utilised to endow the nanoparticles with excellent colloidal stability in water and to incorporate...
