RESUMO

The purpose of this study was to design an injectable hydrogel with temperature-sensitive property for safe and high efficient in vivo colon cancer hyperthermia and chemotherapy. Chitosan (CS) solution was injected into the tumor at room temperature and automatically gelled after warming to body temperature in the present of ß-glycerophosphate (ß-GP). Combined localized tumor photothermal and chemotherapy were achieved by dissolving photothermal material MoS2/Bi2S3-PEG (MBP) nanosheets and drug molecule doxorubicin (DOX) into the hydrogel, and the gel system could encapsulate DOX and MBP nanosheets and prevent them from entering the blood circulation and damaging normal tissues and cells. More importantly, the CS/MBP/DOX (CMD) hydrogel exhibited a photothermal efficiency of 22.18% and 31.42% in the first and second near infrared light (NIR I and NIR II) biowindows respectively at a low MBP concentration (0.5 mg/mL). Besides, the release of the DOX from CMD hydrogel was controllable since the gel temperature could be governed by NIR laser irradiation. Moreover, the chitosan-based hydrogel had antibacterial effects. The designed composite hydrogel is anticipated to act as a platform for the high efficient treatment of tumors owing to the different penetration depths of NIR I and NIR II.

RESUMO

Background: Photothermal and chemotherapy treatment has been frequently studied for cancer therapy; however, chemotherapy is equally toxic to both normal and cancer cells. The clinical application value of most kinds of photothermal transforming agents remains limited, due to their poor degradation and minimal accumulation in tumors. Materials and methods: We reported the synthesis of photothermal transforming agents (MoS2) and chemotherapeutic (doxorubicin, DOX) co-loaded electrospun nanofibers using blend electrospinning for the treatment of postoperative tumor recurrence. Results: Under the irradiation of an 808 nm laser, the as-prepared chitosan/polyvinyl alcohol/MoS2/DOX nanofibers showed an admirable photothermal conversion capability with a photothermal conversion efficiency of 23.2%. These composite nanofibers are in vitro and in vivo biocompatible. In addition, they could control the sustained release of DOX and the generated heat can sensitize the chemotherapeutic efficacy of DOX via enhancing its release rate. Their chemo-/photothermal combined therapy efficiency was systematically studied in vitro and in vivo. Instead of circulating with the body fluid, MoS2 was trapped by the nanofibrous matrix in the tumor and so its tumor-killing ability was not compromised, thus rendering this composite nanofiber a promising alternative for future clinical translation within biomedical application fields. Conclusion: Chitosan/polyvinyl alcohol/MoS2/DOX nanofibers showed an excellent photothermal conversion capability with a photothermal conversion efficiency of 23.2% and can completely inhibit the postoperative tumor reoccurrence.

RESUMO

The overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is linked to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and causes oxidative damage to DNA, proteins, and lipids. These ROS promote the initiation and progression of ulcerative colitis (UC). This study proposes a unique concept of nanomaterials with intrinsic enzyme-like activity (nanozymes) to mediate catalytic nanotherapy for IBD. Methods: We first synthesized manganese Prussian blue nanozymes (MPBZs) with multi-enzyme activity. A dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced mouse model of colitis was built. The ROS scavenging capacity and anti-inflammatory effects of the MPBZs were investigated. Results: As a proof of concept, MPBZs with multi-enzyme activity were constructed of variable valence elements (Mn and Fe) via a facile and efficient strategy. Due to the increased intestinal permeability and positively charged surfaces of inflamed mucosa in murine colitis, the prepared MPBZs with nanoscale sizes and negative charges preferentially accumulated at inflamed sites after oral administration. Importantly, MPBZs mediated catalytic nanotherapy for IBD in mice via a primary effect on the toll-like receptor signaling pathway without adverse side effects. Conclusion: MPBZs with multi-enzyme activity were constructed to treat IBD. This nanozyme-based approach is a promising strategy for catalytic nanotherapy in patients with colonic IBD.

RESUMO

Humic acids are one of the main organic matters in sediments and contribute importantly to the marine biogeochemical cycles. Extracellular electron transfer is a ubiquitous natural process and has potentials to change the macrostructure of humic acids which can act as an electron shuttle. By setting up marine sediment microbial fuel cells, the present study revealed that enhanced extracellular electron transfer process could increase the content of C and H, but decrease the O content in humic acids, which could result in an increased aromaticity and decreased polarity of humic acids, whereas no significant changes occurred to the humification degree of the humic acids. Specific bacterial groups as potential exoelectrogens including Proteobacteria (especially Pseudomonas strains) and Firmicutes were enriched under enhanced extracellular electron transfer process, indicating that they were active to exchange electrons and might play important roles during the changes of humic acids, while the relative abundance of Verrucomicrobia and Bacteroidetes was reduced during these processes. The results of the present research shed lights on the relation between exoelectrogens and the transformation of humic acids in coastal sediment, while the microbial process and mechanisms behind it require further study.

RESUMO

With an excellent near-infrared (NIR) light-responsive property, polypyrrole (PPy) nanoparticle has emerged as a promising NIR photothermal transducing agent for tumor photothermal therapy (PTT). Herein, we reported the PVP mediated one-pot synthesis of colloidal stable and biocompatible PPy nanoparticles (PPy-PVP NPs) for combined tumor photothermal-chemotherapy. The influence of molecular weight and PVP concentration on the spectroscopic characteristic, photothermal feature, drug loading performance, and antitumor efficiency of the resultant PPy-PVP NPs was systematically studied. By choosing PVP with a molecular weight of 360 kDa (concentration of 5 mg/mL) as the template and surface modifier during the synthesis, PPy-PVP NPs with optimal spectroscopic characteristic, photothermal feature, drug loading performance, and antitumor efficiency were synthesized. Findings in this study are anticipated to provide an in-depth understanding of the important character of surface engineering in the rational design and biomedical applications of PPy NPs.

RESUMO

Alginate-Ca2+ hydrogel has been used to immobilize photothermal materials as well as chemotherapy drugs at lesion sites to prevent their entry into the bloodstream. However, the alginate-Ca2+ gelation mechanism may result in hardening of the blood vessels due to Ca2+ migration to the lesion site. In this study, a unique and facile one-pot formation of chemotherapeutic (doxorubicin, DOX) and polypyrrole (PPy)-containing alginate hydrogel was designed by introducing Fe3+, which can synchronously induce the polymerization of pyrrole and gelatinization of alginate, into the DOX/pyrrole/alginate solution. The formed composite hydrogel was endowed with superior photothermal conversion properties in both the NIR-I (650-950 nm) and NIR-II (1000-1700 nm) biowindows and light-to-heat conversion efficiency higher than 50%, which enabled effective tumor hyperthermia treatment. Besides, NIR irradiation could be used as a remote controller to trigger the DOX-release due to the heat generation, thus achieving continuous and on-demand tumor chemotherapy. The composite polymer hydrogels exhibited favorable hemo-, cyto-, and histocompatibility, as well as simple and cost-effective preparation and good clinical prospects.

RESUMO

In this work, a novel kind of electrospun microfiber to deliver a photothermal agent and an anticancer drug to tumor sites is explored. Photothermal therapy agent (MoS2 nanosheets) and doxorubicin (DOX) are incorporated with poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) microfiber via electrospinning a solution of PLGA, MoS2 , and DOX. The designed microfiber with uniform fibrous morphology and negligible in vitro/in vivo hemo-/histo-toxicity is used as a durable photothermal agent, which shows an excellent photothermal transform ability and acceptable photothermal stability in both the first and second near-infrared light (NIR I and II) biowindows. The synergistic in vivo tumor chemotherapy and photothermal therapy efficiency of the composite microfibers are studied in postoperative treatment of cancer. It is found that the tumor postoperative reoccurrence can be completely prohibited owing to the synergistic tumor therapy efficiency in both the NIR I and NIR II biowindows.

RESUMO

The overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is central to the progression of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which may be the potential therapeutic target. Prussian blue (PB) nanoparticles with good biosafety can act as an artificial nanozyme, effectively scavenging ROS. To date, PB-based nanomaterials have not been developed and utilized for treatment of IBD. In this study, poly(vinylpyrrolidone)-modified Prussian blue (PPB) nanoparticles are constructed with good physiological stability and biosafety by a simple and efficient method. The prepared PPBs with capabilities of scavenging ROS and inhibiting proinflammatory cytokine significantly reduce colitis in mice without distinct side effects via intravenous administration. This report provides a demonstration of the protective effect of PB-based nanomedicine against IBD in living animals, offering hope and a potential alternative treatment option for patients suffering from IBD.

RESUMO

The objective of the present study was to construct an alginate (AG)-based phase-changeable and injectable hydrogel for imaging-guided tumor hyperthermia and chemotherapy. Based on the binding between the α-l-guluronic blocks of AG and calcium ions, the AG/MoS2/Bi2S3-poly(ethylene glycol) (MBP)/doxorubicin (DOX) solution formed a cross-linked hydrogel to simultaneously encapsulate MBP nanosheets and DOX within the hydrogel matrix. The in situ formed hydrogel can act as a reservoir to control the release of entrapped drug molecules, and the doped MBP nanosheets and DOX can realize computed tomography/photoacoustic dual-modal imaging-guided in vivo tumor photothermal therapy and chemotherapy, respectively. The AG/MBP/DOX hydrogel exhibited excellent photothermal conversion properties with mass extinction coefficient of 45.1 L/g/cm and photothermal conversion efficiency of 42.7%. Besides, the heat from the photothermal transformation of MBP can promote drug diffusion from the hydrogel to realize on-demand drug release. Additionally, the hydrogel system can restrain MBP and DOX from entering into the blood stream during therapy, and therefore substantially decrease their side effects on normal organs. More importantly, the drug loading of the AG hydrogel was general and can be extended to the encapsulation of antibiotics, such as amoxicillin, for the prevention of postoperative infections.

RESUMO

We designed an injectable hydrogel by dissolving MoS2/Bi2S3-PEG (MBP), doxorubicin (DOX) and agar into water for the concurrent tumor photothermal and chemotherapy. The formed solution was able to be intra-tumorally (I.T.) administered into tumor at a relatively high temperature and automatically formed a hydrogel after cooling to body temperature. The resultant Agar/MBP/DOX (AMD) hydrogel can act as a macro-vessel to retain the MBP nanosheet and DOX and restrict their access to body fluid circulation. Moreover, AMD hydrogel did not compromise the photoacoustic and computed tomography imaging capacity, as well as the photothermal and chemotherapy efficiency of MBP nanosheets and DOX. The heat from the photothermal transformation of MBP nanosheet can promote the drug-release from the hydrogel and thus enable an on-demand drug release. Furthermore, antibiotics were also able to be encapsulated in the hydrogel to avoid the potential wound infection during tumor surgery.

RESUMO

Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have been receiving great attention as NIR photothermal transducing agent in tumor photothermal therapy. Keeping in mind the low efficiency of the conventional top-down exfoliated 2D TMDs and the complexity of their surface modifications, we herein proposed a bottom-up strategy for the one-pot hydrothermal and controlled synthesis of surface polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) modified WS2 nanosheets. The material design was based on the chelating-coordinating effect between the lone pair electrons of oxygen of PVP carbonyl group and the unoccupied orbital (5d orbitals) of tungsten. The WS2 nanosheets with synchronous surface PVP grafting showed an excellent photothermal conversion performance, while the surface anchored PVP guaranteed its colloidal stability. Moreover, the strong X-ray attenuation ability and near-infrared (NIR) absorbance of WS2-PVP360kDa enabled the sensitive in vitro and in vivo computed tomography and photoacoustic imaging. The WS2-PVP360kDa nanosheets were biocompatible and exhibited promising in vitro and in vivo anti-cancer efficacy. Findings in this report may greatly promote the design of colloidal stable and biocompatible 2D TMDs and their future clinical translations. STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE: A bottom-up strategy for the one-pot and controlled synthesis of surface polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) modified WS2 nanosheets was proposed for the first time. By hydrothermally treating the mixture solution of tetrathiotungstate and PVP, Owing to the chelating-coordinating effect between the lone pair electrons of oxygen of PVP carbonyl group and the unoccupied orbital (5d orbitals) of tungsten, PVP was synchronously graphed on WS2-PVP nanosheets surface. The formed WS2-PVP nanosheets were colloidal stable, biocompatible, and exhibited promising computed tomography, photoacoustic imaging and tumor photothermal therapy efficacy both in vitro and in vivo.

RESUMO

The two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) nanosheet has been extensively studied as a novel photothermal transducing agent. However, top-down exfoliation to produce MoS2 nanosheets is inefficient, and MoS2 nanosheet surface modification procedures are complex. Here, we report the synchronous synthesis and surface modification of 2D MoS2 nanosheets with a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)-assisted one-pot hydrothermal method. Due to the chelating-coordinating effect between the lone-pair electrons of the PVP carbonyl oxygen and the unoccupied 4d orbitals of molybdenum, the PVP chains could graft onto the surface of MoS2 and guide the growth of the nanosheets. The resultant MoS2-PVP nanosheets were ultra-small (21.4 ± 4.4 nm) and exhibited excellent colloidal stability. Moreover, the strong near-infrared absorption of the MoS2-PVP nanosheets enabled sensitive photothermal conversion performance (with a mass extinction coefficient of 23.33 L g-1 cm-1) and in vitro/in vivo photoacoustic imaging. The MoS2-PVP nanosheets had excellent in vitro and in vivo compatibility and were used for highly efficient tumor photothermal therapy in xenograft tumor-bearing mice. The findings in this report will facilitate the rational design of stable colloidal 2D transition-metal dichalcogenides for effective photothermal cancer therapy.
