Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an overview of our recent studies regarding the interactions of functional nanoparticles with the human umbilical endothelial cells (HUVECs). Cellular uptake, cytotoxicity and laser hyperthermia of cells loaded with gold nanoparticles are discussed. Particles with different shape, size and charge are compared and evaluated to conclude at the most appropriate types for specific biomedical applications (i.e. drug delivery, laser hyperthermia).
