报告简介:

I will first introduce one typical inorganic nanoparticle, i.e. layered double hydroxide (LDH), and then demonstrate its high potential as the drug/gene delivery platform, including easy preparation, high loading capacity, quick endosome escape and low cytotoxicity. I will then present how to maintain the colloidal stability and avoid the aggregation in medium and blood for in vivo application.

One potential application of clay nanoparticles is vaccine adjuvants that promote higher and long-term immune responses against cancer and bacteria. We have found that LDH is able to readily load model antigen ovalbumin (OVA) and the toll-like receptor ligand CpG together, promote higher levels of specific antibodies, and modulate the immune response from Th2 bias towards the preferred polarity Th1 for anti-cancer purpose, as further evidenced with co-delivery of three antigens for effective inhibition of tumor growth.

The second potential application is acting as an excellent MRI contrast agent for tumor imaging and diagnosis. As LDH is a weak base, the Mn-doped LDH nanoparticles show an pH-ultra-sensitive relaxivity, with the r1 relaxivity being 9-10 mM-1 s-1, and clearly image the tumor tissue. LDH nanoparticles can also be made as multifunctional nanomedicine, combining two therapeutic modules for synergistic treatment of cancers. I will present a few examples to demonstrate the combination therapy for efficient inhibition of tumor growth in mouse model.

A very possible application is used as a carrier for double stranded RNA topical delivery to protect the plants against virus, as will be presented with our current research. This is a good example combining the plant biotechnology and nanotechnology for crop protection, taking the advantage of LDH nanomaterials’ particular property in the field of nano-agro-technology.
