Title: Tissue Engineered Scaffolds for Screening Nanoparticle - Cell Interactions
Published: April 21, 2010
Abstract: Long-term studies of nanoparticle-cell interactions require an advanced tissue-like environment in which nanoparticles are encapsulated with a population of cells for real-time and end-point analysis. By using soft tissue-mimicking hydrogels, the cells are provided with an environment that promotes normal cell function during prolonged nanoparticle exposure. PC12 cells in Collagen I and PEG 4600 hydrogels are considered here, with quantum dots as the model nanoparticle.
