摘要

Magnetic nanoparticles were the thermoseeds under an alternating magnetic field and can be used to produce highly localized hyperthermia effect on deep-seated tumor. Nevertheless, effective and precisive delivery of nanoparticles to the treatment-intended site remains a challenge. In this study, Fe3O4 nanoparticles were incorporated onto the crosslinked electrospun chitosan nanofibers using chemical co-precipitation from the Fe ions adsorbed. Such magnetic nanoparticle-nanofiber composites could be delivered to the treatment site precisely by surgical or endoscopic method. Iminodiacetic acid (IDA) functionality was grafted onto the chitosan with an aim to increase the amount of magnetic nanoparticles formed in the electrospun magnetic nanofiber composite. The morphology, crystalline phase as well as the magnetism characteristic of the magnetic electrospun nanofiber matrixes, was analyzed. Results have indicated that, with the incorporation of IDA functionality, more magnetic nanoparticles were formed in the electrospun chitosan nanofiber matrix. In addition, the magnetic IDA-grafted chitosan nanofiber composite can effectively reduced the tumor cell proliferation under the application of magnetic field. This finding suggested the magnetic electrospun chitosan nanofiber composite can be of potential for hyperthermia treatment.
