    • A systematic study of antibacterial silver nanoparticles: efficiency, enhanced permeability, and cytotoxic effects 

      Azócar, Manuel; Tamayo, Laura; Vejar, Nelson; Gómez, Grace; Zhou, Xiangrong; Thompsom, George; Cerda, Enrique; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Salas, Edison; Páez, Maritza (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2014)
      We report here a systematic study of the antibacterial behavior of silver nanoparticles coated with fatty acids (oleic: AgNP-O, linoleic: AgNP-L, and palmitic acids: AgNP-P) in water. We have found remarkable differences ...
    • Delivery of gold nanoparticles to the brain by conjugation with a peptide that recognizes the transferrin receptor 

      Prades, Roger; Guerrero, Simón; Araya, Eyleen; Molina, Claudia; Salas, Edison; Zurita, Esther; Selva, Javier; Egea, Gustavo; López-Iglesias, Carmen; Teixidó, Meritxell; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Giralt, Ernest (2012)
      The treatment of Alzheimer's disease and many other brain-related disorders is limited because of the presence of the blood-brain barrier, which highly regulate the crossing of drugs. Metal nanoparticles have unique features ...
    • Gold nanoparticle-membrane interactions: Implications in biomedicine 

      Riveros, Ana; Dadlani, Komal; Salas, Edison; Caballero, Leonardo; Melo, Francisco; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo (American Scientific Publishers, 2013)
      There has been an increase in the research towards the use of nanoparticles as a promising tool for nanomedicine, from imagenology, drug and gene delivery, to phototherapy. Little is known regarding the interaction between ...
    • Stable Conjugates of Peptides with Gold Nanorods for Biomedical Applications with Reduced Effects on Cell Viability 

      Adura, Carolina; Guerrero, Simón; Salas, Edison; Medel, Luis; Riveros, Ana; Mena, Juan; Arbiol, Jordi; Albericio, Fernando; Giralt, Ernest; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo (American Chemical Society, 2013)
      Gold nanorods used in therapy and diagnosis must be nontoxic and stable in biological media and should be specific for the target. The complete combination of these three factors has hindered the use of gold nanorods ...
