Researchers Use Magnetism to Target Cells to Animal Arteries
Date:1/7/2008

ies, using endothelial cells to deliver beneficial genes to damaged arteries.

The delivery system, says Levy, might also be applied to other sites where physicians implant steel stents to deliver medication, such as the esophagus, bile ducts and lungs. Another potential use might be in orthopedic procedures, in which surgeons implant steel nails to stabilize fractured bones, or use steel screws to correct spinal abnormalities. In such cases, magnetized nanoparticles might deliver bone stem cells to strengthen bony structures.

"Magnetic fields produced by ordinary MRI machines could suffice to deliver cells to targets where they could promote healing, since MRI uses uniform fields, which are key to our targeting strategy," added Levy. "This method could become a powerful medical tool."

Financial support for the study came from the National Institutes of Health, the Nanotechnology Institute, and both the William J. Rashkind Endowment and Erin's Fund of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Levy's co-authors were Ilia Fishbein, M.D., Michael Chorny, Ph.D., Ivan S. Alferiev, Ph.D., and Darryl Williams, of Children's Hospital; Boris Polyak, M.D., and Gary Friedman, Ph.D., of Drexel University; and Ben Yellen, Ph.D., of Duke University.
