- Carbohydrate-Conjugated Hollow Oblate Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles as Nanoantibiotics to Target Mycobacteria
Nanjing Hao, Xuan Chen, Seaho Jeon and Mingdi Yan
Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201500491
Engineering nanomaterials with enhanced antibacterial activities remains a critical and practical challenge. Hollow oblate mesoporous silica nanoparticles (HOMSNs) are synthesized by a simple protocol of ammonia hydrothermal treatment of oblate mesoporous silica nanoparticles prepared using dibenzyl ether as a cosolvent. When conjugated with trehalose as the targeting ligand, the antibiotic-encapsulated HOMSNs exhibit high binding affinity and antibacterial efficacy toward mycobacteria.
- Nuclear-Targeting MSNs-Based Drug Delivery System: Global Gene Expression Analysis on the MDR-Overcoming Mechanisms
Xiaoyu Li, Limin Pan and Jianlin Shi
Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201500548
The biological mechanisms of nuclear-targeting mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs)-based DDSs (DOX@NT-MSNs) in overcoming multidrug resistance of cancer cells have been studied. It is interesting to find for the first time that DOX@NT-MSNs down-regulate the expression of apoptosis suppressor genes and inhibit DNA repair process by disturbing the p53 pathway.
- Photomediated Reactive Oxygen Species-Generable Nanoparticles for Triggered Release and Endo/Lysosomal Escape of Drug upon Attenuated Single Light Irradiation
Eun Ha Seo, Chung-Sung Lee and Kun Na
Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201500622
Photomediated reactive oxygen species (ROS)-generable nanoparticles (SRNs) incorporated with ROS-generator and scavenger in a single delivery platform is developed. Under attenuated single light irradiation, doxorubicin loaded SRNs (D-SRNs) synergistically exhibit simultaneous triggered drug release and endo/lysosomal escape as well as photodynamic therapy for highly efficient cancer treatment.

Colleen N. Loynachan, Gabriela Romero, Michael G. Christiansen, Ritchie Chen, Rachel Ellison, Tiernan T. O'Malley, Ulrich P. Froriep, Dominic M. Walsh and Polina Anikeeva
Article first published online: 7 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201570081
On p. 2100, P. Anikeeva and co-workers demonstrate a technique using remotely triggered local heating to disaggregate deposits of the protein Aβ(1–42), which plays an important role in Alzheimer's Disease pathogenesis. The cover image shows neural network (green) overlayed with amyloid beta plaques (red) that are decorated with magnetic nanoparticles (blue). The glow around the blue spheres represents heat dissipation by nanoparticles, which induces disaggregation of the plaques.
