    • Gastric cancer: Nanoparticles as tools to improve treatment efficacy 

      Guerrero, Ariel R.; Oyarzún Ampuero, Felipe; Hassan, Natalia; Corvalán, Alejandro; Quest, Andrew F. G.; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo (Bentham Science, 2016)
      In recent years, advances in nanotechnology have raised the specter of developing effective agents for the treatment of high-impact diseases, like gastric cancer, which remains one of the major causes of cancer deaths ...
    • Gold nanoparticles for photothermally controlled drug release 

      Guerrero, Ariel R.; Hassan, Natalia; Escobar, Carlos A.; Albericio, Fernando; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Araya, Eyleen (Future Medicine Ltd., 2014)
      © 2014 Future Medicine Ltd. In this article, we describe how nanoparticles work in photothermally triggered drug delivery, starting with a description of the plasmon resonance and the photothermal effect, and how this is ...
    • Gold nanoparticles interacting with β-cyclodextrin-phenylethylamine inclusion complex: a ternary system for photothermal drug release 

      Sierpe, Rodrigo; Lang, Erika; Jara, Paul; Guerrero, Ariel; Chornik, Boris; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Yutronic Sáez, Nicolás (American Chemical Society, 2015)
      We report the synthesis of a 1:1 beta-cydodextrin-phenylethylamine (beta CD-PhEA) inclusion complex (IC) and the adhesion of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) onto micro crystals of this complex, which forms a ternary system. The ...
    • Peptides and metallic nanoparticles for biomedical applications 

      Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Olmedo, Ivonne; Hosta, Leticia; Guerrero, Ariel; Cruz, Luis; Albericio, Fernando (2007)
      In this review, we describe the contribution of peptides to the biomedical applications of metallic nanoparticles. We also discuss strategies for the preparation of peptide-nanoparticle conjugates and the synthesis of the ...
    • The case for aflatoxins in the causal chain of gallbladder cancer 

      Foerster Guzmán, Claudia; Koshiol, Jill; Guerrero, Ariel R.; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Ferreccio, Catterina (Churchill Livingstone, 2016)
      © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.Chronic aflatoxin exposure has long been related to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, its association with gallbladder cancer (GBC) was postulated. Here we present the data supporting this ...
