fibrin hydrogels with plasmonic nanoparticles - Ciber



The invention relates to a photothermal device comprising plasmonic nanoparticles embedded in a hydrogel made of fibrin matrix that in addition may entrap thermosensitive effectors. Irradiation of the device with near infrared (NIR) light of specific wavelength and energy level increases the temperature of the composite. This photothermal device can be implanted and then irradiated on demand, providing a reliable source of heat in biological tissues. Localized photothermia can be used to remotely control the delivery of therapeutic agents from the device. The invention is useful for the application of hyperthermiabased therapies and controlled delivery of therapeutic agents in biological tissues.

This invention was developed by researchers from the University of Zaragoza, Hospital Universitario La Paz, and Biomedical Research Networking Centre in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN).

DESCRIPTION Fibrin is a biocompatible, biodegradable and non-immunogenic biomaterial. The features of fibrin matrices are well suited to obtain implantable devices comprising plasmonic nanoparticles tailored for absorption between 600 and 1150 nm. This wavelength range of the NIR spectrum provides a therapeutic window that maximizes light penetrance in biological tissues. The inclusion of plasmonic nanostructures in a fibrin matrix results in a composite which efficiently transduces NIR photon energy into heat. Additionally, the plasmonic composite may entrap thermosensitive effectors as temperature sensitive liposomes or genetically modified cells responsive to temperature increases. NIR irradiation of the photothermal device increases its temperature, resulting in the active release of therapeutic agents contained or produced by the thermosensitive effectors. The different aspects of the present invention are: Procedure for obtaining photothermal devices and their use as medicinal products. Method for generating controlled increase of temperature in a selected anatomical location Method for controlling the delivery of therapeutic agents in a selected anatomical region.

APPLICATIONS Antitumor therapy Treatment of infections Tissue regeneration and wound healing. Pain relief.



Treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.






Source of hyperthermia with therapeutic effect Controlled Drug Delivery Confinement of the therapeutic composition in any anatomic site Repeated photothermal inductions in the target tissue Reliable, controlled and precise establishment of hyperthermia in depth tissues Direct destruction of cancer cell in antitumor therapeutic protocols
