The project here described aims to synthesize mesoporous silica nanoparticles to encapsulate doxorubicin for further functionalization with monoclonal antibodies for treating Hodgkin and anaplastic large cell CD-30+ lymphomas. As monoclonal antibodies exhibit highly specific binding sites, the aim of this work is to obtain a more effective chemotherapy for this type of lymphoma. In addition, the work has focused on: (1) analyze the specificity of the synthesized front patients and healthy cells and (2) to investigate the controlled release of the drug, reducing its toxicity. The structures formed will be characterized by ultraviolet visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA). Nitrogen adsorption/desorption isotherms will be used in determining the size and organization of the pores. The evolution of the nanoparticles functionalization will be investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and zeta potential. Biological activity experiments will be conducted with Hodgkin and anaplastic large cell CD-30+ lymphoma cells, which have the specific antigens that are recognized by antibodies present on the surface of the nanoparticles synthesized. The counting and analysis of cells will be performed with the Perkin Elmer Operetta and flow cytometer, both at National Biosciences Laboratory (LNBio). (AU)
