Magnetic γ-FeO/CeO nanoparticles were obtained by precipitation of Ce(NO) with ammonia in the presence of γ-FeO seeds. The formation of CeO nanoparticles on the seeds was confirmed by transmission electron microscopy linked with selected area electron diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, electron energy loss spectroscopy, and dynamic light scattering. The γ-FeO/CeO particle surface was functionalized with PEG-neridronate to improve the colloidal stability in PBS and biocompatibility. Read More

Niemann-Pick type C (NPC) disease is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease that is caused by a mutation of the or gene, in which un-esterified cholesterol and sphingolipids accumulate mainly in the liver, spleen, and brain. Abnormal lysosomal storage leads to cell damage, neurological problems, and premature death. The time of onset and severity of symptoms of NPC disease are highly variable. Read More
