AFM nanoindentation detection of the elastic modulus of tongue squamous carcinoma cells with different metastatic potentials – Uncorrected Proof

Abstract: Although significant advances have been made in understanding the molecular mechanisms that influence tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC) metastasis, less is known about the association between the cellular elastic modulus and TSCC metastasis. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) nanoindentation via the rate-jump method was used to detect the… Continue reading

Comparison of select cancer biomarkers in human circulating and bulk tumor cells using magnetic nanoparticles and a miniaturized micro-NMR system – Corrected Proof

Abstract: Circulating tumor cells (CTC) harvested from peripheral blood have received significant interest as sources for serial sampling to gauge treatment efficacy. Nanotechnology and microfluidic based approaches are emerging to facilitate such analyses. While of considerable clinical importance, there is little information on how similar or… Continue reading

Significant toxic role for single-walled carbon nanotubes during normal embryogenesis – Corrected Proof

Abstract: In order to investigate the effect of SWCNTs in the embryo, we examined the outcome of SWCNTs in avian embryo at an early stage of development. We found that SWCNTs-treatment inhibits the angiogenesis of the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) and in the chicken embryo. Moreover, we showed that SWCNTs can harm the normal development of the… Continue reading
