A Novel Theranostic Platform: Integration of Magnetomotive and Thermal Ultrasound Imaging with Magnetic Hyperthermia
This paper describes a theranostic system where a single coil is used to apply two different magnetic fields for magnetic hyperthermia (therapy) and magnetomotive ultrasound (diagnostics). This integrated system is proposed to address two of the main challenges that hinder magnetic hyperthermia to be translated into clinical routine: localizing the magnetic nanoparticles (magnetomotive ultrasound) and real-time temperature monitoring (ultrasound thermometry). We believe this study can open up a new horizon in magnetic hyperthermia, where planning, treating, and monitoring can be achieved through a single nanotheranostic agent and a cost-effective, portable, real-time and clinically available imaging device that uses non-ionizing radiation...

Synthesis of La-Sr-Mn-O and La-Sr-Ca-Mn-O perovskites through solution combustion using urea at fuel deficient conditions
La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) nanoparticles have been obtained via solution combustion synthesis (SCS) using urea and glycine as fuels. Also, La0.7Sr0.27Ca0.03MnO3 (LSCMO) nanoparticles have been synthesized through solution combustion using urea as fuel. In this paper, the combustion process was carried out... Read more

Electric Stimulus-Responsive Chitosan/MNP composite Microbeads for a Drug Delivery System
Direct drug administration has several shortcomings, for eg, poor target localization and specificity, opsonization, undesired systemic exposure, etc. Stimuli controlled Drug Delivery Substrates (DDS) not only sterically shield the drug from premature renal flushing, but also introduce the possibility of...
