The change in cell size and alterations in the distribution of cells at different phases of the cell cycle are indicators of change in cell homeostasis. In this study, the HEp-2 cell line cells were treated for 24 hours by two shapes of Gold nanoparticles (GNPs): Gold nanospheres (GNSs) and Gold nanorods (GNRs). The cytotoxic effect of GNPs was evaluated by different methods. The MTT assay revealed that GNPs have a cytotoxic effect on HEp-2 cells and the GNRs are more toxic than GNSs. Image morp...

Metal ions are notorious environmental contaminants, some causing toxicity at exquisitely low (ppm-level) concentrations. Yet, the redox properties of metal ions make them attractive candidates for bio-therapeutics. Titanates are insoluble particulate compounds of titanium and oxygen with crystalline surfaces that bind metal ions; these compounds offer a means to scavenge metal ions in environmental contexts or deliver them in therapeutic contexts while limiting systemic exposure and toxicity.

Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is a method of cancer therapy with a simple idea behind it. Positioning a certain amount of 10B-enriched boron-containing compounds into tumor cells with subsequent irradiation of the tumor tissue by thermal or epithermal neutrons causes tumor damage and death. The mechanism of the tumor cell damage during BNCT is based on the capture-fission reaction between the boron-10 nucleus and a neutron resulting in an α-particle release inside the cell. A success...
