Modifying bismuth sulfide for biocompatible CT imaging
2014-06-24 08:28:40 | 编辑: |点击浏览:次| 【 【打印】【关闭】

  With the largest atomic number and X-ray attenuation coefficient, Bi2S3 may be the most promising computed tomography (CT) contrast agent among the metal-based nanoparticles. However, the need for surface modification and biocompatibility is limiting its application as a CT contrast agent in vivo. Reporting in Nanotechnology, researchers have designed a Bi2S3-PF127 probe that not only has good CT imaging performance but is also safe and biocompatible.

  Pluronic F127 (PF127) is an ABA-type triblock copolymer that presents high biocompatibility and an ideal surface modification of materials. It is highly safe in vivo and has been approved for use in intravenous drugs by the US Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA). 

  Transformation of the probe 

  Researchers from Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China transformed Bi2S3-PF127 nanoparticles from Bi2S3-OAm by stirring in the PF127 solution. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) spectra, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and physical stability were used to characterize the modification.  

  Biocompatible and safe 

  The authors demonstrate in vitro and in vivo CT imaging using the Bi2S3-PF127 probe through phantom imaging, cell imaging and mouse imaging by the self-image system, which all show a good contrast effect. They then study the biological distribution of Bi by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). This confirms that most of the nanoparticles are cleaned out after injection by 48 hours and that the Bi2S3-PF127 probe has a long circulation. Hematoxylin and eosin stains, biochemical analysis and blood analysis confirm that the probe has good biocompatibility and safety.
