Silver nanoparticles promote the emergence of heterogeneic human neutrophil sub-populations

Journal Article
Kemp, S., Young, L., Ross, M., Prach, M., Hutchison, G. R., Malone, E., & Fraser, J. A. (2018)
Silver nanoparticles promote the emergence of heterogeneic human neutrophil sub-populations. Scientific Reports, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-25854-2
Neutrophil surveillance is central to nanoparticle clearance. Silver nanoparticles (AgNP) have numerous uses, however conflicting evidence exists as to their impact on neutrop...

Imaging of activated complement using ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide particles (USPIO) - conjugated vectors: an in vivo in utero non-invasive method to predict placental insufficiency and abnormal fetal brain development.

Journal Article
Girardi, G., Fraser, J. A., Lennen, R., Vontell, R., Jansen, M., & Hutchison, G. (2015)
Imaging of activated complement using ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide particles (USPIO) - conjugated vectors: an in vivo in utero non-invasive method to predict placental insufficiency and abnormal fetal brain development. Molecular Psychiatry, 20, 1017-1026. https://doi.org/10.1038/mp.2014.110
In the current study, we have developed a magnetic resonance imaging-based method for non-invasive detection of complement activation in placenta and foetal brain in vivo in u...

Identification of the mechanisms that drive the toxicity of TiO2 particulates: the contribution of physicochemical characteristics

Journal Article
Johnston, H. J., Hutchison, G. R., Christensen, F. M., Peters, S., Hankin, S., & Stone, V. (2009)
Identification of the mechanisms that drive the toxicity of TiO2 particulates: the contribution of physicochemical characteristics. Particle and fibre toxicology, 6(1), 33. https://doi.org/10.1186/1743-8977-6-33
This review focuses on outlining the toxicity of titanium dioxide (TiO₂) particulates in vitro and in vivo, in order to understand their ability to detrimentally impact...

Nanoparticle interactions with zinc and iron: Implications for toxicology and inflammation
