• Cyclic Arginine–Glycine–Aspartate-Decorated Lipid Nanoparticle Targeting toward Inflammatory Lesions Involves Hitchhiking with Phagocytes 

      Sofias, Alexandros Marios; Bjørkøy, Geir; Ochando, Jordi; Sønstevold, Linda; Hegvik, Maria; Davies, Catharina de Lange; Haraldseth, Olav; Lammers, Twan; Mulder, Willem J. M.; Hak, Sjoerd (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Active-targeting nanomedicine formulations have an intricate in vivo behavior. Nanomedicines developed to target endothelial αvβ3-integrin are recently demonstrated to display extensive uptake by circulating phagocytes. ...
    • L-DOPA-Coated Manganese Oxide Nanoparticles as Dual MRI Contrast Agents and Drug-Delivery Vehicles 

      McDonagh, Birgitte Hjelmeland; Singh, Gurvinder; Hak, Sjoerd; Bandyopadhyay, Sulalit; Augestad, Ingrid Lovise; Peddis, Davide; Sandvig, Ioanna; Sandvig, Axel; Glomm, Wilhelm (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Manganese oxide nanoparticles (MONPs) are capable of time‐dependent magnetic resonance imaging contrast switching as well as releasing a surface‐bound drug. MONPs give T2/T2* contrast, but dissolve and release T1‐active ...
    • Nanoparticle-stabilized microbubbles for multimodal imaging and drug delivery 

      Mørch, Ýrr Asbjørg; Hansen, Rune; Berg, Sigrid; Åslund, Andreas; Glomm, Wilhelm; Eggen, Siv; Schmid, Ruth; Johnsen, Heidi; Kubowicz, Stephan; Snipstad, Sofie; Sulheim, Einar; Hak, Sjoerd; Singh, Gurvinder; McDonagh, Birgitte Hjelmeland; Blom, Hans; Davies, Ruth Catharina de Lange; Stenstad, Per Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Microbubbles (MBs) are routinely used as contrast agents for ultrasound imaging. The use of ultrasound in combination with MBs has also attracted attention as a method to enhance drug delivery. We have developed a technology ...
    • Tumor Targeting by αvβ3-Integrin-Specific Lipid Nanoparticles Occurs via Phagocyte Hitchhiking 

      Sofias, Alexandros Marios; Toner, Yohana C.; Meerwaldt, Anu E.; van Leent, Mandy M. T.; Soultanidis, Georgios; Elschot, Mattijs; Gonai, Haruki; Grendstad, Kristin; Flobak, Åsmund; Neckmann, Ulrike; Wolowczyk, Camilla; Fisher, Elizabeth L.; Reiner, Thomas; Davies, Catharina de Lange; Bjørkøy, Geir; Teunissen, Abraham J. P.; Ochando, Jordi; Pérez-Medina, Carlos; Mulder, Willem J. M.; Hak, Sjoerd (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Although the first nanomedicine was clinically approved more than two decades ago, nanoparticles’ (NP) in vivo behavior is complex and the immune system’s role in their application remains elusive. At present, only ...
