Multifunctional Adaptable Injectable TiN‐Based Hydrogels for Antitumor and Antidrug‐Resistant Bacterial Therapy

  •  14 June 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

In this study, prefabricated TiN nanodots and Fe(CO)5 nanoparticles are combined into sodium alginate hydrogels to create a biomedical material for the topical treatment of breast cancer and subcutaneous abscesses, and a pseudocatalytic hydrogel with intrinsic photothermal and antibacterial activities is synthesized. The addition of the hydrogel causes TiN nanodots to accumulate around cancerous regions.

Antibacterial Activity of Silver Nanoparticles: Structural Effects

  •  29 May 2018

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) hold great promise to address the challenges in multidrug resistance in bacteria. This review briefly summarizes the current understanding of antibacterial mechanisms of AgNPs and how surface chemistry, size, and shape, impact their potencies, which are expected to help further development of AgNP-based antibacterial agents.

Photosensitizers for Photodynamic Therapy

  •  8 May 2019

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

This review highlights the strategies to enhance the reactive oxygen species generation through optimizing photoinduced electron transfer and energy transfer processes of photosensitizers (PSs). The approaches that combine photodynamic therapy with other therapeutics (e.g., chemotherapy, photothermal therapy, and radiotherapy) and the targeted delivery in cancer cells or tumor tissue are introduced. The main challenges for the clinical application of PSs are also discussed.

Advances and Impact of Antioxidant Hydrogel in Chronic Wound Healing

  •  24 January 2020
