Keywors: SPI nnoprtile, etine, heptom, MRI Introution The pplitions of superprmgneti iron oxie nnoprtiles (SPI) in iomeiine hve een tively pursue in reent yers (Wilkinson 23; Gupt n Gupt 25; Hu n Yu 26). However, reltively little work hs een rrie out on the non-polymer ote superprmgneti nnoprtiles with entire size smller thn 1 nm. It hs een emonstrte tht the size of iron oxie prtile n the oting hve notle influene on its mgneti property, ellulr uptke n ell viility. Generlly speking, the nnoprtiles employe for in vivo pplitions shoul e suffiiently smll, stle t physiologil onition without ggregtion n present superprmgneti ehvior t room temperture. All SPI nnoprtiles presently unergoing prelinil or linil testing re ote with polymeri mteril (eg, extrn, roxyextrn, polyethylene glyol). Dextrn limits the tolerne of the ompoun, whih n therefore only e ministere s slow infusion (Pnym n Lhsetwr 23). In ft, ll polymers use, even the well-tolerte polyethylene glyol, hve limittions in tissue istriution, penetrtion, metoli lerne n proue verse retions (Zhng et l 22). Reently, non-polymer (itrte) ote superprmgneti nnoprtile hs een investigte in MR ngiogrphy (Shnorr et l 22; Tupitz et l 2; Wgner et l 22). Here we report non-polymer ote SPI nnoprtile, whih hs n overll size roun 9 nm n is stle n ioomptile oth in vitro n in vivo. Following systemi ministrtion, the nnoprtile hs preferentil ioistriution in mmmlin liver n exhiits goo reution of relxivity time n negtive enhnement for the etetion of heptom noules in rt moel using mgneti resonne imging (MRI). The surfe hemistry of nnoprtiles is importnt for their potentil pplitions in iomeiine. In this report, we use etine s stilizing gent for the preprtion of SPI nnoprtiles. We hoose etine for this purpose se on the following onsiertions: (1) etine is moleule omprising mphiphili hrter, whih is stle over wie ph rnge in iologil onitions; (2) etine is nturl methylting gent in mmmlin liver, whih hs een foun to protet the livers of experimentl nimls Interntionl Journl of Nnomeiine 27:2(4) Dove Meil Press Limite.

The im of this stuy is to generte etine ote SPI nnoprtile n investigte its potentil pplitions in vivo. ur preliminry t emonstrte tht the non-polymer ote nnoprtile is useful s n MRI ontrst gent. Methos n results Preprtion n hrteriztion of SPI nnoprtiles For the preprtion of mgnetite nnoprtiles, 1 M FeCl 3.6H 2 (>99%) ws mixe with 2 M FeCl 2.4H 2 (>99%) t the rtio 2:1 n then 28.6% (w/w) Betine hyrohlorie (Fluk Biohemik) ws issolve in the solution y stirring. The ph of retion solution ws juste with the 3M NH until rehing ph vlue of 11. After stirring vigorously for 15 min, the solution ph ws juste to 4 y ing 2M HCl ropwise. The etine ote Fe 3 prtiles were ollete y mgneti seprtion y pplying permnent mgnet for 3 min n wshe with eionize wter three times. To remove exess ions n etine further, the prout ws ilyze ginst with eionize wter overnight. Following this, the solution ws entrifuge t 35 g t RT for 1 min. Finlly the prout ws psse though.22 μm filter n use for investigtions. Eletron mirogrphs of the mgnetite ispersions were rrie out using rop of the smple onto opper mesh ote with n morphous ron film. This mesh ws then rie in vuum esitor. TEM imges were performe using type JEL-JEM--CXΙΙ with working onition kv. Figure 1 shows TEM imge of the iron oxie suspensions with well-isperse feture.

3 A non-polymer ote SPI nnoprtile To hrterize the prouts further, prtil prouts were rie in vuum oven t 25 C for 12 h n use for X-ry iffrtion (XRD) nlysis (Tupitz et l 22). XRD t were ollete on Rigku D/mx 255 V X-ry iffrtometer employing Cu-K rition (λ = A t 4 kv n ma). Figure 1 isplys the XRD ptterns for the s-preipitte powers orresponing to Figure 1. As mgnetite (Fe 3 ) my e onverte to mghemite (gmm Fe 2 3 ) in the presene of oxygen, it is possile tht the ore of the resulting nnoprtiles n onsist of mghemite s it hs een emonstrte reently (Thünemnn et l 26). The surfe properties were hrterize using FT-IR. The iron oxie preipittes were rie n groun with KBr for IR mesurements y Nexus 67 FT-IR spetrophotometer with resolution of 2 m 1. FT-IR nlysis ws performe to hrterize the surfe nture of the resulting mgnetite nnoprtiles, s epite in Figure 1. A virtionl feture t 1628 m 1 is foun n ssigne to the C N strething motion, whih oul e erive from etine tht ws ote on Fe 3. The ro pek ppere in the region m 1 region orrespons to the H strething virtion s the iron oxie surfes re reily overe with hyroxyl groups in n queous environment (Cheng et l 25). The propose eletrostti intertion of the etine with Fe 3 ws shown in sheme in Figure 1. To investigte the mgneti properties of the SPI nnoprtile, mgnetiztion mesurements hve een me t 23 C with respet to the prtile size using virting smple mgnetometer (VSM, JDM-13) t 18 e H 18 e. The superprmgneti ehvior of the SPI nnoprtile ws eviene y zero oerivity n remnene on the mgnetiztion loop n sturtion mgnetiztion of 56.8 emu/g ws etermine (Figure 2). The Fe 3 onentrtions were mesure y treting the iron oxies with nitri i n were lulte on the sis of the verge imeter of the iron oxie prtiles. Moreover,.3T NMR spetrometer with n extremity 5 m oil ws use for the r1; r2 mesurement of SPI nnoprtiles in the wter. The T1 n T2 mesurements were rrie out using the inversion reovery n Crr-Purell-Meioom-Gill (CPMG) sequenes, respetively. Smples were issolve into eionize wter n were nlyze for susequent etermintion of the r1 n r2 properties. The ommeril G-DTPA ws lso nlyze for omprtive stuy. At onentrtion of.1 mm of the mgnetite prtiles, the longituinl relxtion time (T1) ws reue from 2117 ms for pure wter to 48 ms (Figure 2), while the T2 relxtion time ws reue from 239 to 18 ms (Figure 2). A omprison of T1 n T2 vlues of H 2, G-DTPA n SPI tht were mesure using eh pulse for refousing in the multieho sequene is given in Tle 1. ur t emonstrte tht the SPI nnoprtile strongly reue oth T1 n T2 relxtion times with T2 signifintly lower thn T1.
