Biodistribution, clearance, and long‐term fate of clinically relevant nanomaterials

Bourquin, Joël ; Milosevic, Ana ; Hauser, Daniel ; Lehner, Roman ; Blank, Fabian ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara

In: Advanced Materials, 2018, p. -

Realization of the immense potential of nanomaterials for biomedical applications will require a thorough understanding of how they interact with cells, tissues, and organs. There is evidence that, depending on their physicochemical properties and subsequent interactions, nanomaterials are indeed taken up by cells. However, the subsequent release and/or intracellular degradation of the...

Nanoparticle–cell interaction: a cell mechanics perspective

Septiadi, Dedy ; Crippa, Federica ; Moore, Thomas Lee ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Advanced Materials, 2018, p. -

Progress in the field of nanoparticles has enabled the rapid development of multiple products and technologies; however, some nanoparticles can pose both a threat to the environment and human health. To enable their safe implementation, a comprehensive knowledge of nanoparticles and their biological interactions is needed. In vitro and in vivo toxicity tests have been considered the gold...

Lock-in thermography as an analytical tool for magnetic nanoparticles: measuring heating power and magnetic fields

Monnier, Christophe A. ; Crippa, Federica ; Geers, Christoph ; Knapp, Evelyne ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Bonmarin, Mathias ; Lattuada, Marco ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 2017, vol. 121, no. 48, p. 27164–27175

Magnetic nanoparticles and their ability to convert electromagnetic energy into heat are of explicit interest for various applications. However, precise quantification of their heating efficiency is not always upfront, and several parameters render comparative studies challenging. This paper describes the theory behind lock-in thermography, a new technique for quantifying the heating...

In vitro approaches to assess the hazard of nanomaterials

Drasler, Barbara ; Sayre, Phil ; Steinhäuser, Klaus Günter ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara

In: NanoImpact, 2017, vol. 8, no. Supplement C, p. 99–116

The rapid development of engineered nanomaterials demands for a fast and reliable assessment of their health hazard potential. A plethora of experimental approaches have been developed and are widely employed in conventional toxicological approaches. However, the specific properties of nanomaterials such as smaller size but larger surface area, and high catalytic reactivity and distinctive...

Biodistribution of single and aggregated gold nanoparticles exposed to the human lung epithelial tissue barrier at the air-liquid interface

Durantie, Estelle ; Vanhecke, Dimitri ; Rodriguez-Lorenzo, Laura ; Delhaes, Flavien ; Balog, Sandor ; Septiadi, Dedy ; Bourquin, Joel ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara

In: Particle and Fibre Toxicology, 2017, vol. 14, p. 49

The lung represents the primary entry route for airborne particles into the human body. Most studies addressed possible adverse effects using single (nano)particles, but aerosolic nanoparticles (NPs) tend to aggregate and form structures of several hundreds nm in diameter, changing the physico-chemical properties and interaction with cells. Our aim was to investigate how aggregation might...

Taylor dispersion of nanoparticles

Urban, Dominic A. ; Milosevic, Ana M. ; Crippa, Federica ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Journal of Nanoparticle Research, 2017, vol. 19, no. 8, p. 287

The ability to detect and accurately characterize particles is required by many fields of nanotechnology, including materials science, nanotoxicology, and nanomedicine. Among the most relevant physicochemical properties of nanoparticles, size and the related surface-to-volume ratio are fundamental ones. Taylor dispersion combines three independent phenomena to determine particle size: optical...

Speckle-visibility spectroscopy of depolarized dynamic light scattering

Bossert, David ; Natterodt, Jens ; Urban, Dominic A. ; Weder, Christoph ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: The Journal of Physical Chemistry B, 2017, vol. 121, no. 33, p. 7999–8007

We show that the statistical analysis of photon counts in depolarized dynamic light scattering experiments allows for the accurate characterization of the rotational Brownian dynamics of particles. Unlike photon correlation spectroscopy, the technique is accurate even at low temporal resolution and enables discontinuous data acquisition, which offers several advantages. To demonstrate the...

Advanced human in vitro models to assess metal oxide nanoparticle-cell interactions

Wick, Peter ; Grafmueller, Stefanie ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara

In: MRS Bulletin, 2014, vol. 39, no. 11, p. 984-989
