Title : Fullerene-silica nanocomposites as a base for targeted drug delivery and chemoimmunotherapeutic treatment of cancer
The synthetic procedures and structure of C60 Fullerene–Silica nanocomposites will be described. The main idea of the presentation will be to show the possibilities of nanocomposites, which possess immune modulating and stimulating properties themselves, and are biologically friendly, to be a matrix for creating on their surface the complexes of biologically active compounds and nanoparticles to prepare agents for immunotherapy, photodynamic therapy, chemotherapy , vaccine therapy of cancer and other pathologic states.
Audience take away:
- The approaches demonstrated in the presentation can be versatile in creating new effective nanotechnologies for the treatment of cancer and other diseases and new nanocomposites with a wide range of therapeutic and prophylactic effects
- The results presented will be useful in teaching courses in nanobiotechnology and nanotechnology in general. Some of the approaches discussed in the report may serve as a guide when researching new nanocomposite materials with unique photocatalytic and medico-biological properties and a clue to creating new targeted drug delivery systems in places of pathologies.
