REVIEW
Francesca Garello, Enzo Terreno
In the tireless search for innovative and more efficient cancer therapies, sonosensitive Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) agents play an important role. Basically, these systems consist of nano/microvesicles composed by a biocompatible membrane, responsive to ultrasound-induced thermal or mechanical effects, and an aqueous core, filled up with a MRI detectable probe and a therapeutic agent. They offer the possibility to trigger and monitor in real time drug release in a spatio-temporal domain, with the expectation to predict the therapeutic outcome...

Although EML4-ALK transforming fusion gene is represented in only 8% of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cases, its expression is partly responsive for the failure of current NSCLC treatments. Preventing secondary mutation of the ALK protein through direct gene manipulation could overcome NSCLC drug resistance. Method: In this study, we developed a gold nanoshell (HAuNs) drug carrier for delivery and selective photo-thermal release of genes that target ALK and microRNA-301 in NSCLC. Additionally, the densely-coated nanoshell adsorbed high amounts of the positively-charged anticancer drug doxorubicin (DOX), generating an exciting multidimensional treatment strategy that includes gene-, thermal- and chemo- therapy...

Absorption of near infrared (NIR) light by metallic nanoparticles can cause extreme heating and is of interest for instance in cancer treatment since NIR light has a relatively large penetration depth into biological tissue. Here, we quantify the extraordinary thermoplasmonic properties of platinum nanoparticles and demonstrate their efficiency in photothermal cancer therapy. Although platinum nanoparticles are extensively used for catalysis, they are much overlooked in a biological context. Via direct measurements based on a biological matrix we show that individual irradiated platinum nanoparticles with diameters of 50-70 nm can easily reach surface temperatures up to 900 K...

Iron oxide nanoparticles (IONP) are already well-established in the medical field due to their ability to improve contrast in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and for their external magnetic control in the body. Moreover, selenium has been shown to kill numerous cancer cells at lower concentrations that IONP (e.g., 1 μg/ml). Selenium is a trace mineral of growing interest in cancer treatment since it is an essential nutrient in the human body and can interfere with thiolcontaining proteins necessary for cancer cells to function...

In this study, we explained in detail a targeted nano-photo-thermal therapy (NPTT) method to induce selective apoptosis in cancer cells. Folate-conjugated gold nanoparticles (F-AuNPs) were synthesized by tailoring the surface of AuNPs with folic acid to enhance the specificity of NPTT. KB cancer cells, as a folate receptor over-expressing cell line, and L929 normal cells with low level of folate receptors were incubated with the synthesized F-AuNPs and then irradiated with various laser intensities and exposure durations...

NIR light-induced imaging-guided cancer therapy is an encouraging route in the cancer theranostic field. Herein, we describe a novel nanoscale proposal, which is established by covalently implanting core-shell structured upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) with nanographene oxide (NGO) by a process utilizing polyethylene glycol (PEG), and consequently loading Chlorin e6 (Ce6) onto the surface of NGO. The acquired NGO-UCNP-Ce6 (NUC) nanocomposites can not only be employed as upconversion luminescence (UCL) imaging probes of cells and whole-body animals with high contrast for diagnosis, but also can generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) under 808 nm light excitation for photodynamic therapy (PDT); over and above, they can swiftly and proficiently translate the 808 nm photon into thermal energy for photothermal therapy (PTT)...

Porous silicon nanoparticles (PSiNPs) and gold nanorods (AuNRs) can be used as biocompatible nanocarriers for delivery of therapeutics but undesired leakage makes them inefficient. By encapsulating the PSiNPs and AuNRs in a hydrogel shell, we create a biocompatible functional nanocarrier that enables sustained release of therapeutics. Here, we report the fabrication of AuNRs-conjugated PSi nanoparticles (AuNRsPSiNPs) through two-step chemical reaction for high-capacity loading of hydrophobic and hydrophilic therapeutics with photothermal property...

Radionuclide therapy with nano-sized carriers is a very promising approach to treat various types of cancer. The preparation of radioactive nanocarriers can be achieved with minimum handling using a neutron-activation approach. However, the nanocarrier material must possess certain characteristics such as low density, heat-resistance, high metal adsorption, easy surface modification and low toxicity in order to be useful. Mesoporous Carbon Nanoparticles (MCNs) in which holmium oxide is formed in their pores by a wet-impregnation process are investigated as a suitable material for this application...

Integrating radiation therapy with high-depth photothermal therapy in the second near-infrared (NIR) window is highly required for efficient treatment of deep-seated tumor cells. Here, we constructed a multifunctional nano-theranostic with bimetallic chalcogenide nanocrystals (NCs) functionalized with amphiphilic d-α-tocopherol polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS-Cu3BiS3). Benefiting from the strong absorbance of both X-ray and NIR light in the second NIR window, TPGS-Cu3BiS3 CNs can not only deposit more radiation dose to trigger enhanced radiation damage in vivo, but also conduct photo-induced hyperthermia for thermal ablation in the second NIR window and effective improvement of tumor oxygenation to overcome the hypoxia-associated radio-resistance of tumors...

To monitor the temperature distribution of a cell and its changes under varied conditions is currently a technical challenge. A variety of non-contact methods used for measuring cellular temperature have been developed, where changes of local temperature at cell-level and sub-cell-level are indirectly calculated through the changes in intensity, band-shape, bandwidth, lifetime or polarization anisotropy of the fluorescence spectra recorded from the nano-sized fluorescent materials pre-injected into the target cell...

Clusters of magnetic nanoparticles have received considerable interest in various research fields. Their capacity to generate heat under an alternating magnetic field has recently opened the way to applications such as cancer therapy by hyperthermia. This work is an attempt to investigate the collective effects of interacting dipoles embedded in magnetic nano-particles (MNP) to predict their thermal dissipation with a liquid. We first present a general approach, based on the tracking of the microscopic dipole fluctuations, to access to the dissipation spectra of any spatial distribution of MNPs...

The unresolved and paramount challenge in bio-imaging and targeted therapy is to clearly define and demarcate the physical margins of tumor tissue. The ability to outline the healthy vital tissues to be carefully navigated with transection while an intraoperative surgery procedure is performed sets up a necessary and under-researched goal. To achieve the aforementioned objectives, there is a need to optimize design considerations in order to not only obtain an effective imaging agent but to also achieve attributes like favorable water solubility, biocompatibility, high molecular brightness, and a tissue specific targeting approach...

BACKGROUND: We have been developing a non-thermal, drug-free tumor therapy called Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) that delivers ultrashort electric pulses to tumor cells which eliminates the tumor and inhibits secondary tumor growth. We hypothesized that the mechanism for inhibiting secondary tumor growth involves stimulating an adaptive immune response via an immunogenic form of apoptosis, commonly known as immunogenic cell death (ICD). ICD is characterized by the emission of danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) that serve to recruit immune cells to the site of the tumor...
