    Near-infrared active superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles for magnetomotive optical coherence tomography imaging and magnetic hyperthermia therapeutic applications

    A green chemistry-based approach to nanoparticle synthesis is an eco-friendly, simple, and cost-effective way to fabricate nanoparticles. This study aims at the biomedical applications of green synthesized near-infrared (NIR) active superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs). The SPIONs obtained by the green synthesis route are non-toxic and their surface is free from any chemical impurity. The MTT [3-(4, 5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-Diphenyltetrazolium Bromide] assay was accomplished on human cervical cancer (HeLa) cells and shows that the SPIONs are biocompatible and thus safe for cells even at higher concentrations up to 500 μg/ml. The synthesized SPIONs display an absorbance in the ...
