    • Tamayo, Laura; Azócar, Manuel; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Riveros, Ana; Páez, Maritza (2016)
      The development of polymer nanocomposites with antimicrobial properties has been a key factor for controlling or inhibiting the growth of microorganisms and preventing foodborne diseases and nosocomial infections. Commercially ...
    • 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 ...
    • Neira Carrillo, Andrónico; Yslas, Edith; Yazmin Amar, Marini; Vásquez Quitral, Patricio; Sánchez, Marianela; Riveros, Ana; Yáñez, Diego; Cavallo, Pablo; Kogan Bocian, Marcelo; Acevedo, Diego (2016)
      Inorganic materials contain remarkable properties for drug delivery, such as a large surface area and nanoporous structure. Among these materials, CaCO3 microparticles (CMPs) exhibit a high encapsulation efficiency and ...
    • Simon, Felipe; Leiva Salcedo, Elías; Armisen Yáñez, Ricardo; Riveros, Ana; Cerda, Oscar; Varela, Diego; Eguiguren, Ana Luisa; Olivero, Pablo; Stutzin Schottlander, Andrés (2010)
      Necrosis is associated with an increase in plasma membrane permeability, cell swelling, and loss of membrane integrity with subsequent release of cytoplasmic constituents. Severe redox imbalance by overproduction of reactive ...
    • Sánchez Vergara, Gina; Chalmers, Stefanie; Ahumada, Xavier; Montecinos, Luis; Olmedo Alegría, Ivonne Odette; Eisner, Verónica; Riveros, Ana; Kogan, Marcelo J.; Lavandero González, Sergio; Pedrozo Cibils, Zully; Donoso Laurent, Paulina (Public Library Science, 2020)
      The heart is critically dependent on mitochondrial respiration for energy supply. Ischemia decreases oxygen availability, with catastrophic consequences for cellular energy systems. After a few minutes of ischemia, the ...
    • Simon, Felipe; Varela, Diego; Riveros, Ana; Eguiguren, Ana Luisa; Stutzin Schottlander, Andrés (Society of Biology of Chile, 2002)
      Necrosis is considered as a non-specific form of cell death that induces tissue inflammation and is preceded by cell swelling. This increase in cell volume has been ascribed mainly to defective outward pumping of Na+ caused ...
    • Morales-Zavala, Francisco; Arriagada, Hector; Hassan, Natalia; Velasco, Carolina; Riveros, Ana; Álvarez, Alejandra R.; Minniti, Alicia N.; Rojas-Silva, Ximena; Muñoz, Luis L.; Vasquez, Rodrigo; Rodriguez, Katherine; Sanchez-Navarro, Macarena; Giralt, Ernest; Araya, Ey (Elsevier Inc., 2017)
      © 2017 Elsevier Inc. The properties of nanometric materials make nanotechnology a promising platform for tackling problems of contemporary medicine. In this work, gold nanorods were synthetized and stabilized with polyethylene ...
