Chemical synthesis, stability, and characterization of a new albumin-based magnetic nanocarrier containing cobalt ferrite nanoparticles is reported. The BSA–cobalt-based nanocarrier is tested as a theranostic nanomedicine: both diagnostic abilities in vivo and therapeutic hyperthermic effects on standard human tumor cell line (HeLa cells, see image) are investigated.
