A rapid screening method to evaluate the impact of nanoparticles on macrophages

Mottas, Inès ; Milosevic, Ana ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Bourquin, Carole

In: Nanoscale, 2017, vol. 9, no. 7, p. 2492–2504

Nanotechnology is an emerging and highly promising field to develop new approaches for biomedical applications. There is however at present an unmet need for a rapid and universal method to screen nanoparticles (NP) for immunocompatibility at early stages of their development. Indeed, although many types of highly diverse NP are currently under investigation, their interaction with immune...

Elucidating the potential biological impact of cellulose nanocrystals

Camarero-Espinosa, Sandra ; Endes, Carola ; Mueller, Silvana ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Weder, Christoph ; Clift, Martin James David ; Foster, E. Johan

In: Fibers, 2016, vol. 4, no. 3, p. 21

Cellulose nanocrystals exhibit an interesting combination of mechanical properties and physical characteristics, which make them potentially useful for a wide range of consumer applications. However, as the usage of these bio-based nanofibers increases, a greater understanding of human exposure addressing their potential health issues should be gained. The aim of this perspective is to...

Decoupling the shape parameter to assess gold nanorod uptake by mammalian cells

Kinnear, Calum ; Rodriguez-Lorenzo, Laura ; Clift, M. J. D. ; Goris, B. ; Bals, S. ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Nanoscale, 2016, vol. 8, no. 36, p. 16416–16426

The impact of nanoparticles (NPs) upon biological systems can be fundamentally associated with their physicochemical parameters. A further often-stated tenet is the importance of NP shape on rates of endocytosis. However, given the convoluted parameters concerning the NP–cell interaction, it is experimentally challenging to attribute any findings to shape alone. Herein we demonstrate that...

Combined exposure of diesel exhaust particles and respirable Soufrière Hills volcanic ash causes a (pro-)inflammatory response in an in vitro multicellular epithelial tissue barrier model

Tomašek, Ines ; Horwell, Claire J. ; Damby, David E. ; Barošová, Hana ; Geers, Christoph ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Clift, Martin J. D.

In: Particle and Fibre Toxicology, 2016, vol. 13, p. 67

There are justifiable health concerns regarding the potential adverse effects associated with human exposure to volcanic ash (VA) particles, especially when considering communities living in urban areas already exposed to heightened air pollution. The aim of this study was, therefore, to gain an imperative, first understanding of the biological impacts of respirable VA when exposed...

A lock-in-based method to examine the thermal signatures of magnetic nanoparticles in the liquid, solid and aggregated states

Monnier, Christophe A. ; Lattuada, Marco ; Burnand, David ; Crippa, F. ; Martinez-Garcia, J. C. ; Hirt, A. M. ; Rothen-Rutishauser, B. ; Bonmarin, M. ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Nanoscale, 2016, vol. 8, no. 27, p. 13321–13332

We propose a new methodology based on lock-in thermography to study and quantify the heating power of magnetic nanoparticles. Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles exposed to a modulated alternating magnetic field were used as model materials to demonstrate the potency of the system. Both quantitative and qualitative information on their respective heating power was extracted at high...

Diesel exhaust: current knowledge of adverse effects and underlying cellular mechanisms

Steiner, Sandro ; Bisig, Christoph ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara

In: Archives of Toxicology, 2016, p. 1–13

Diesel engine emissions are among the most prevalent anthropogenic pollutants worldwide, and with the growing popularity of diesel-fueled engines in the private transportation sector, they are becoming increasingly widespread in densely populated urban regions. However, a large number of toxicological studies clearly show that diesel engine emissions profoundly affect human health. Thus the...

Engineered nanomaterials: toward effective safety management in research laboratories

Groso, Amela ; Petri-Fink, Alke ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Hofmann, Heinrich ; Meyer, Thierry

In: Journal of Nanobiotechnology, 2016, vol. 14, p. 21

It is still unknown which types of nanomaterials and associated doses represent an actual danger to humans and environment. Meanwhile, there is consensus on applying the precautionary principle to these novel materials until more information is available. To deal with the rapid evolution of research, including the fast turnover of collaborators, a user-friendly and easy-to-apply risk...

Plasmonic nanoparticles and their characterization in physiological fluids

Urban, Dominic A. ; Rodriguez-Lorenzo, Laura ; Balog, Sandor ; Kinnear, Calum ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 2016, vol. 137, p. 39–49

Nanoparticles possess unique properties beyond that of classical materials, and while these properties can be used for designing a dedicated functionality, they may also pose a problem to living organisms, to human health and the environment. The specific primary routes by which nanoparticles may interact with the human body include inhalation, injection, ingestion and application to the skin....

Distribution of silica-coated silver/gold nanostars in soft- and hardwood applying SERS-based imaging

Geers, Christoph ; Rodríguez-Lorenzo, Laura ; Placencia Peña, M. I. ; Brodard, Pierre ; Volkmer, T. ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Petri-Fink, Alke

In: Langmuir, 2016, vol. 32, no. 1, p. 274–283

Nanoparticles (NPs) in aqueous suspension have just begun to be exploited for the preservative treatment of wood. However, at present, there is very little information available on the distribution of NPs in wood after impregnation, due to associated analytical challenges. In this study, we present the detection of model NPs in softwood and hardwood by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)....
