An immunochromatographic strip sensor for sildenafil and its analogues

A novel Sild hapten was successfully synthesized and a sensitive anti-Sild mAb was produced based on this hapten. The immunochromatographic assay (ICA) allowed qualitative and quantitative detection of Sild and its analogues in food samples within 15 min. The ICA was successfully applied to real samples and showed a good correlation with ic-ELISA.

Perfluorocarbon-based O2 nanocarrier for efficient photodynamic therapy

A series of polymer micelles with a perfluorocarbon (PFC) core to carry both PS and O2 to tumor sites was prepared. These new PFC formulation not only improved the production of 1O2 and enhanced the PDT efficiency, but also significantly reduced cell toxicity compared with the one without a perfluoro unit.
