Protein coronas suppress the hemolytic activity of hydrophilic and hydrophobic nanoparticles

Author affiliations

Abstract

The role of nanoparticle surface hydrophobicity on hemolytic properties is established in the absence and presence of plasma proteins. Significantly, the formation of a plasma protein corona on the NP surface protects red blood cells from both hydrophilic and hydrophobic NP-mediated hemolysis.
