AB  - Although selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) have gained attention in the scientific community mostly through investigation of their anticancer activity, a great potential of this nanomaterial was recognized recently regarding its antimicrobial activity. The particle form, size, and surface chemistry have been recognized as crucial parameters determining the interaction of nanomaterials with biological entities. Furthermore, considering a narrow boundary between beneficial and toxic effects for selenium per se, it is clear that investigations of biomedical applications of SeNPs are very demanding and must be done with great precautions. The goal of this work is to evaluate the effects of SeNPs surface chemistry and structure on antimicrobial activity against several common bacterial strains, including Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538), Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC 29212), Bacillus subtilis (ATCC 6633), and Kocuria rhizophila (ATCC 9341), as well as Escherichia coli (ATCC 8739), Salmonella Abony (NCTC 6017), Klebsiella pneumoniae (NCIMB 9111) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 9027), and the standard yeast strain Candida albicans (ATCC 10231). Three types of SeNPs were synthesized by chemical reduction approach using different stabilizers and reducing agents: (i) bovine serum albumin (BSA) + ascorbic acid, (ii) chitosan + ascorbic acid, and (iii) with glucose. A thorough physicochemical characterization of the obtained SeNPs was performed to determine the effects of varying synthesis parameters on their morphology, size, structure, and surface chemistry. All SeNPs were amorphous, with spherical morphology and size in the range 70–300 nm. However, the SeNPs obtained under different synthesis conditions, i.e. by using different stabilizers as well as reducing agents, exhibited different antimicrobial activity as well as cytotoxicity which are crucial for their applications. In this paper, the antimicrobial screening of the selected systems is presented, which was determined by the broth microdilution method, and inhibitory influence on the production of monomicrobial and dual-species biofilm was evaluated. The potential mechanism of action of different systems is proposed. Additionally, the cytotoxicity of SeNPs was examined on the MRC-5 cell line, in the same concentration interval as for antimicrobial testing. It was shown that formulation SeNPs-BSA expressed a significantly lower cytotoxic effect than the other two formulations.

AB  - Acinetobacter baumannii je globalno rasprostranjen nozokomijalni patogen koji se odlikuje izuzetnom sposobnošću ekstremno brzog sticanja rezistencije na antibiotike, kao i adaptacije na preživljavanje u suvim uslovima bolničke sredine [1]. Zbog velike zastupljenosti rezistentnih sojeva protiv kojih ne postoji delotvorna terapija, Svetska zdravstvena organizacija (WHO, 2017) i Centri za kontrolu i prevenciju bolesti (CDC, 2019), označili su A. baumannii kao patogen od kritične važnosti za otkriće novih antimikrobnih agenasa ili novih terapijskih strategija [2]. Targetiranje virulencije je oblik alternativnog terapijskog pristupa koji pruža mogućnost prevencije teže kliničke slike kod inficiranih pacijenata posredstvom inhibicije ekspresije ključnih faktora virulencije, uz istovremenu redukovanu selekciju rezistentnih mutanata [3].Rezultati i Diskusija: Od četiri različito supstituisana hidroksihalkona, sintetisanih u postupku bazno-katalizovane Claisen-Schmidt kondenzacije, selektiran je metkosi-supstituisani derivat kao najpotentniji inhibitor produkcije biofilma kod A. baumannii. Primenom Real-Time kvantitativne PCR metode sa reverznom transkriptazom ispitan je uticaj subinhibitornih koncentracija selektiranog jedinjenja (70, 35 i 10 μg/mL) na ekspresiju gena faktora virulencije povezanih sa produkcijom biofilma kod A. baumannii: ompA, bap i abaI. Pokazana je značajna dozno-zavisna nishodna ekspresija ompA gena, koji kodira OmpA protein spoljašnje membrane ćelijskog zida, koji učestvuje u brojnim virulentnim osobinama A. baumannii, kao što su adhezija, citotoksičnost, motilitet i rezistencija na imunski odgovor i antibiotike [4]. Takođe, zabeležena je značajna inhibicija ekspresije bap gena, koja je neophodna za adheziju na humane epitelne ćelije, i abaI gena, integralnog dela bakterijskog kvorum-sensing sistema, koji kodira sintazu autoinduktorskih molekula. Sposobnost antivirulentnog delovanja metoksi-supstituisanog derivata hidroksihalkona potvrđena je demonstracijom inhibicije fenotipske ekspresije faktora virulencije povezanih sa ekspresijom ompA, bap i abaI gena, kao što su adhezija za komponente ekstracelularnog matriksa (fibronektin i kolagen), površinski motilitet i produkcija autoinduktorskih molekula.Zaključak: Metoksi-supstituisani hidroksihalkon ispoljava antivirulentno dejstvo protiv A. baumannii, pre svega posredstvom nishodne regulacije ompA gena, što se reflektuje u inhibiciji produkcije biofilma, sposobnosti adhezije i površinskog motiliteta ovog patogena.
AB  - Over the last two decades, Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as one of the most troublesome pathogens, rapidly acquiring resistance to virtually all available antibiotics. This has urged researchers to seek alternative ways to fight this pathogen. Targeting its virulence appears to be a promising strategy, as it offers considerably reduced selection of resistant mutants. In this study, we tested antibiofilm activity of four synthetic chalcone derivatives against A. baumannii. Compound that showed the greatest activity was selected for further evaluation of its antivirulence properties. We used quantitative Real-Time PCR to evaluate mRNA expression of virulence-associated genes (ompA, bap, abaI) in extensively drug-resistant (XDR) A. baumannii wound isolate and A. baumannii ATCC 19606 strain, treated with selected compound. Also, we tested biofilm production, fibronectin- and collagen-mediated adhesion, surface motility and quorum-sensing activity of treated strains. The results revealed downregulation of the expression of all tested virulence genes together with the reduction of biofilm production, adhesion and motility. The most notable finding is significant reduction of ompA gene expression, whose encoded protein product is associated with numerous virulence traits of A. baumannii. Therefore, we conclude that selected methoxy-substituted hydroxychalcone exhibits antivirulence activity against A. baumannii by inhibiting the expression of the bacterial adhesins, most importantly OmpA, which is reflected in reduced biofilm formation, adhesion and surface motility.

AB  - Poly (ε-caprolactone) (PCL) microspheres as a carrier for sustained release of antibacterial agent, selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs), were developed. The obtained PCL/SeNPs microspheres were in the range 1–4 μm with the encapsulation efficiency of about 90%. The degradation process and release behavior of SeNPs from PCL microspheres were investigated in five different degradation media: phosphate buffer solution (PBS), a solution of lipase isolated from the porcine pancreas in PBS, 0.1 M hydrochloric acid (HCl), Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 cell-free extract in PBS and implant fluid (exudate) from the subcutaneously implanted sterile polyvinyl sponges which induce a foreign-body inflammatory reaction. The samples were thoroughly characterized by SEM, TEM, FTIR, XRD, PSA, DSC, confocal microscopy, and ICP-OES techniques. Under physiological conditions at neutral pH, a very slow release of SeNPs occurred (3 and 8% in the case of PBS or PBS + lipase, respectively and after 660 days), while in the acidic environment their presence was not detected. On the other hand, the release in the medium with bacterial extract was much more pronounced, even after 24 h (13%). After 7 days, the concentration of SeNPs reached a maximum of around 30%. Also, 37% of SeNPs have been released after 11 days of incubation of PCL/SeNPs in the implant exudate. These results suggest that the release of SeNPs from PCL was triggered by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 bacterium as well as by foreign body inflammatory reaction to implant. Furthermore, PCL/SeNPs microspheres were investigated in terms of their biocompatibility. For this purpose, cytotoxicity, the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and genotoxicity were evaluated on HepG2 cell line. The interaction of PCL/SeNPs with phagocytic cell line (Raw 264.7 macrophages) was monitored as well. It was found that the microspheres in investigated concentration range had no acute cytotoxic effects. Finally, SeNPs, as well as PCL/SeNPs, showed a considerable antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923) and Staphylococcus epidermidis (ATCC 1228). These results suggest that PCL/SeNPs-based system could be an attractive platform for a prolonged prevention of infections accompanying implants. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - Cell scaffolds are often used in cell transplantation as they provide a solid structural support to implanted cells and can be bioengineered to mimic the native extracellular matrix. Gadolinium fluoride nanoparticles (Gd-NPs) as a contrast agent for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) were incorporated into poly(lactide-co-glycolide)/chitosan scaffolds to obtain Imaging Labelled Cell Scaffolds (ILCSs), having the shape of hollow spherical/ellipsoidal particles (200–600 µm diameter and 50–80 µm shell thickness). While Gd-NPs incorporated into microparticles do not provide any contrast enhancement in T1-weighted (T1w) MR images, ILCSs can release Gd-NPs in a controlled manner, thus activating MRI contrast. ILCSs seeded with human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) were xenografted subcutaneously into either immunocompromised and immunocompetent mice without any immunosuppressant treatments, and the transplants were followed-up in vivo by MRI for 18 days. Immunocompromised mice showed a progressive activation of MRI contrast within the implants due to the release of Gd-NPs in the extracellular matrix. Instead, immunocompetent mice showed poor activation of MRI contrast due to the encapsulation of ILCSs within fibrotic capsules and to the scavenging of released Gd-NPs by phagocytic cells. In conclusion, the MRI follow-up of cell xenografts can report the host cell response to the xenograft. However, it does not strictly report on the viability of transplanted hMSCs. © 2019 by the authors.

AB  - Nanotechnology has great potential in the biomedical field. Among other nanomaterials, inorganic nanoparticles have become extremely important since they possess unique physicochemical properties influenced by their specific surface structure. Consequently, inorganic nanoparticles exhibit enhanced functionalities such as biological response, antibacterial and antiviral properties, as well as optical, magnetic, and electrical responses. They have found applications in medicine, pharmacy, controlled drug delivery, optics, electronics, etc. In this chapter, reports on obtaining different metallic and ceramic inorganic nanoparticles such as gold, silver, selenium, copper, iron, zinc oxide, and hydroxyapatite for biomedical applications will be addressed. For each of these nanosystems, the main challenges regarding the currently achieved functional properties and further perspectives will also be presented.

abstract = "Nanotechnology has great potential in the biomedical field. Among other nanomaterials, inorganic nanoparticles have become extremely important since they possess unique physicochemical properties influenced by their specific surface structure. Consequently, inorganic nanoparticles exhibit enhanced functionalities such as biological response, antibacterial and antiviral properties, as well as optical, magnetic, and electrical responses. They have found applications in medicine, pharmacy, controlled drug delivery, optics, electronics, etc. In this chapter, reports on obtaining different metallic and ceramic inorganic nanoparticles such as gold, silver, selenium, copper, iron, zinc oxide, and hydroxyapatite for biomedical applications will be addressed. For each of these nanosystems, the main challenges regarding the currently achieved functional properties and further perspectives will also be presented.",

AB  - *Introduction*In regenerative medicine, biocompatible hydrogels are increasingly used to encapsulate therapeutic cells prior to transplantation into the host to enhance their long term survival. Cell embedding within bioengineered hydrogels can shield cells from immune response and provide an optimal life-sustaining microenvironment to therapeutic cells. In addition, cell embedding offers the outstanding opportunity to insert microenvironment-responsive imaging labels within the hydrogel, paving the way for non-invasive monitoring of the extracellular microenvironment within the hydrogel. We have inserted redox-responsive MRI labels within cell-embedding hydrogels to follow-up the microenvironment redox state.*Methods*High molecular weight chitosan polymers were chemically conjugated with a Gd-HPDO3A-chelate through a disulfide bond, and interspersed within alginate-based hydrogel capsules. Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) as model therapeutic cells were embedded into such imaging labelled hydrogel. Embedded cells were incubated under simulated hypoxiaconditions, while being followed-up by T1-weighted MRI at 7T.*Results*Under reducing conditions, reductive cleavage of the disulfide bond in the Gd-chitosan probe yields a low molecular weight Gd-chelate that eventually diffuses out of the hydrogel capsule. The resulting change of MRI contrast enhancement along time is very sensitive to the oxygenation level within cell capsules. The kinetics of clearance of contrast enhancement is an indirect indicator of the survival of encapsulated cells.*Conclusions*The Gd-chitosan probe we developed is promising to follow-up non-invasively the redox microenvironment within cellembedding hydrogels. This approach will find useful application to monitor whether transplanted cells succeed to restore normal tissue oxygenation levels, especially in regenerative medicine approaches to ischemic diseases.

AB  - The aim of this study was to test the potential of high molecular weight exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by the putative probiotic strain Lactobacillus paraplantarum BGCG11 (EPS CG11) to alleviate inflammatory pain in Wistar rats. The EPS CG11 was isolated from bacterial surface and was subjected to Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermal analysis. FTIR spectra confirmed the polysaccharide structure of isolated sample, while the thermal methods revealed good thermal properties of the polymer. The antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 were examined in the rat model of inflammation induced by carrageenan injection in hind paw. The results showed that the intraperitoneal administration of EPS CG11 produced a significant decrease in pain sensations (mechanical hyperalgesia) and a paw swelling in a dose-dependent manner as it was measured using Von Frey anesthesiometer and plethysmometer, respectively. These effects were followed by a decreased expression of IL-1β and iNOS mRNAs in rat’s paw tissue suggesting that the antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 are related to the suppression of inflammatory response. Additionally, we demonstrated that EPS CG11 exhibits immunosuppressive properties in the peritonitis model induced by carrageenan. Expression levels of pro-inflammatory mediators IL-1β, TNF-α and iNOS were decreased, together with the enhanced secretion of anti-inflammatory IL-10 and IL-6 cytokines, while neutrophil infiltration was not changed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study which reports an antihyperalgesic effect as the novel property of bacterial EPSs. Given the high demands of pharmaceutical industry for the replacement of commonly used analgesics due to numerous side effects, this study describes a promising natural compound for the future pharmacological testing in the area.

AB  - Producing green and efficient energy sources is a major challenge. As a consequence, the use of photovoltaic devices for conversion of light into electricity is growing worldwide. A lot of effort had been invested to create high-efficient solar cells, but their durability, stability, flexibility and efficiency at low light intensities are still unexplored. Here, we built a flexible solar cell made of p-doped, amorphized a-undoped and n-doped Sb2S3 solid carrier loaded with electrolyte. Indium tin oxide glass was the working electrode, and aluminium was the counter electrode. Every (p–a–n) flexible Sb2S3/solid carrier layers were obtained using a cheap casting/solvent evaporation technique, from a blend consisted of chitosan, polyethylene glycol and electrolyte containing 0.5 M potassium iodide and 0.05 M iodine, and corresponding synthesized amorphized a-undoped and p and n-doped Sb2S3 semiconductor. Results show that flexible Sb2S3 solar cell possesses good stability and efficiency of about 10% at 5% sun. Overall, our findings demonstrate for the first time that flexible solar cell can be made and used for low light intensity applications. © 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - Introduction: Cell encapsulation by hydrogels is intended to shield transplanted cells from the host hostile environment by preventing the infiltration of host immune cells. Cell scaffolding by solid biocompatible microparticles is intended to provide a structural support to implanted cells and to mimic the extracellular matrix, allowing cells to proliferate and/or differentiate in the desired way. We present strategies to label scaffolding biomaterials with microenvironment responsive MRI probes, for applications in the follow-up of cell transplants.

Methods: Microparticles (MPs) based on PLGA/chitosan were incorporated with gadolinium fluoride nanoparticles (GdNPs), as the MRI T1-contrast agent. The system is designed such to release Gd-NPs in the extracellular matrix (ECM), thus activating MRI contrast, unless MPs are attacked by the immune system (Foreign Body Response, FBR). To proof the concept, PLGA-based MPs were seeded with hMSCs and implanted into either immunocompetent or immunocompromised mice, and the transplants were followed-up by MRI for three weeks. Ex-vivo histologic assessment was carried out at the end of the follow-up.

Results/Discussion: Immunocompetent mice showed poor activation, if any, of MRI contrast within the cell graft. Immunocompromised mice, on the other hand, showed a progressive activation of MRI contrast. Ex-vivo histology showed extensive FBR directed against microparticles in immunocompetent mice, with some surviving hMSCs in the ECM but not on the scaffold surface. No significant FBR was detected in immunocompromised mice, and hMSCs were still adhering to the scaffolds.

Conclusions: The proposed system is able to assess whether or not cell grafts are subjected to innate immune response, an event that is likely correlated to the loss of transplanted cells.

AB  - Cell therapy is promising strategy that has attracted a lot of attention recently regarding regeneration of diverse tissues and treatment of various pathological conditions. Despite its great potential, several issues still need to be addressed. Among them administration route and dose, microenvironment conditions and host immune response are recognized as a major causes which lead to cells transplantation failure. In this work it is presented novel microstructural system based on biodegradable polymer poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) and combination of biocompatible polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and chitosan, as a scaffold for human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) growth. The obtained microparticles with diameter 200-600 μm showed full biocompatibility with human hMSCs. Besides serving as a solid support, polymeric particles provided controlled release of contrast agent - gadolinium fluoride nanoparticles (Gd-NP) up to 5 weeks. The release of Gd-NP is enhanced by acidic conditions. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the samples embedded in 1% agar showed that contrast enhancement in T1-weighted (T1w) MR images is influenced by the amount of released Gd-NP. Based on these preliminary results, presented theranostic system could be considered for cells grafting.

AB  - Producing green and efficient energy sources is a major challenge. As a consequence, the use of photovoltaic devices for conversion of light into electricity is growing worldwide. A lot of effort had been invested to create high-efficient solar cells, but their durability, stability, flexibility and efficiency at low light intensities are still unexplored. Here, we built a flexible solar cell made of p-doped, amorphized a-undoped and n-doped Sb2S3 solid carrier loaded with electrolyte. Indium tin oxide glass was the working electrode, and aluminium was the counter electrode. Every (p–a–n) flexible Sb2S3/solid carrier layers were obtained using a cheap casting/solvent evaporation technique, from a blend consisted of chitosan, polyethylene glycol and electrolyte containing 0.5 M potassium iodide and 0.05 M iodine, and corresponding synthesized amorphized a-undoped and p and n-doped Sb2S3 semiconductor. Results show that flexible Sb2S3 solar cell possesses good stability and efficiency of about 10% at 5% sun. Overall, our findings demonstrate for the first time that flexible solar cell can be made and used for low light intensity applications. © 2018, Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - One of the most prominent properties of poly (є-caprolactone) (PCL) as a biodegradable polymer is slow degradation rate. Due to this advantage the PCL is often used in versatile systems for drug delivery or tissue engineering. When it comes to drug delivery systems, this property of PCL provides the slow release of encapsulated medicaments in order to avoid acute toxicity i.e. to enhance therapeutic efficiency, or protects medicaments from "aggressive" environment and ensures prolonged effect. Selenium nanoparticles (SeNp) recently gained attention as a potential candidate for cancer therapy and prevention with antibacterial properties as well. The major drawback of SeNp is substantial risk of toxicity. Degradation itself is a function of several material properties as well as the nature of surrounding medium. In this work it is examined the release of SeNp from PCL microparticles during the degradation in four different mediums: phosphate buffered saline (PBS), solution of lipase isolated from porcine pancreas in PBS, 0.1 M hydrochloric acid (HCL) and Psseudomonas aeruginosa cell free extract in PBS. The main idea was to compare the release of the selenium nanoparticles in physiological conditions (the first three medium) and in the pathological conditions (the fourth medium), respectively. Firstly, the PCL/SeNp were suspended in adequate medium and placed in water bath at 37 °C. At exact times, samples were collected and examined by different techniques: X-ray diffraction (XRD), inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The release of selenium nanoparticles in physiological conditions occurred in a very slow manner without burst release while in the presence of bacterial extract the release was much more pronounced, even after 24 h.

abstract = "n the bone tissue engineering field, there is a growing interest in the application of bioactive glass scaffolds (45S5Bioglass®) due to their bone bonding ability, osteoconductivity and osteoinductivity. However, such scaffolds still lack some of the required functionalities to enable the successful formation of new bone, e.g. effective antibacterial properties. A large number of studies suggest that selenium (Se) has significant role in antioxidant protection, enhanced immune surveillance and modulation of cell proliferation. Selenium nanoparticles (SeNp) have also been reported to possess antibacterial as well as antiviral activities. In this investigation, uniform, stable, amorphous SeNp have been synthesized and additionally immobilized within spherical PLGA particles (PLGA/SeNp). These particles were used to coat bioactive glass-based scaffolds synthesized by the foam replica method. Samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). SeNp, 45S5Bioglass®/SeNp and 45S5Bioglass®/PLGA/SeNp showed a considerable antibacterial activity against Gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis, one of the main causative agents of orthopedic infections. The functionalized Se-coated bioactive glass scaffolds represent a new family of bioactive, antibacterial scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications.",

AB  - Tissue engineering (TE) is a growing field which provides helpful alternative strategies for conventional treatments in medicine. TE involves the smart combination of cells, biomolecules and engineered porous biomaterials in the form of 3D scaffolds. When it comes to bone regeneration the use of 3D scaffolds made of calcium phosphate is a well-known concept with a great potential. Here we present the foam replica method as a procedure suitable for producing highly porous scaffolds with the pore size in the range of 100-500 μm and the mean porosity of >90%. The obtained scaffolds were further coated with selenium nanoparticles (SeNp) and SeNp immobilized within poly(epsilon caprolactone) microspheres (PCL/Se). The purpose of such coating is based on the potential anticancer activity of SeNp as well as on their prolonged release from a biodegradable polymeric carrier. Scaffolds were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis (TGA-DTA) as well as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The cytotoxicity was determined employing 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay and all the samples have shown good biocompatibility. Based on these preliminary results the obtained system can be considered as a candidate for the repair of bone lesions and damages.

AB  - The broad spectrum of selenium applications in pharmacy and medicine has been known for a while and strongly depends on its chemical form, size and shape. However, the use of Se often requires consumption over the long period, so the toxicity of Se is always a crucial concern. Majority of available pharmaceutical products contain organic forms of selenium or its salts, but recently, when it comes to cancer treatment, elemental selenium nanoparticles (SeNPs) have emerged as a novel selenium source with the advantage of reduced risk of selenium toxicity, but with same bioavailability and efficacy in increasing the activities of selenoenzimes. 
In this work we are presenting the fast, reproducible method for producing stable colloidal suspension of amorphous SeNPs (<80 nm). These SeNPS were successful incorporated within PCL microspheres by combining the high speed homogenization and the precipitation in a solvent/non-solvent system. The obtained PCL/SeNPs were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermal analysis methods (TGA-DTA). The cytotoxicity and the formation of intracellular reactive oxygen species of SeNPs as well as of PCL/SeNPs were investigated employing 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay and using a fluorescent probe (DCFDA test) respectively. Both systems have shown good biocompatibility. The anticancer activity of SeNPs was examined on the HeLa cell line and it was demonstrated that SeNPs exhibits strong, a dose dependent, anticancer activity by preventing further HeLa cells growth and division. Bearing in mind that PCL is well known biodegradable polymer with low degradation rate, it is our opinion that PCL/SeNPs possess a great potential for cancer treatment.

AB  - A water-soluble antioxidant (ascorbic acid, vitamin C) was encapsulated together with poly(l-glutamic acid)-capped silver nanoparticles (AgNpPGA) within a poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) polymeric matrix and their synergistic effects were studied. The PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid particles synthesized by a physicochemical method with solvent/non-solvent systems are spherical, have a mean diameter of 775 nm and a narrow size distribution with a polydispersity index of 0.158. The encapsulation efficiency of AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid within PLGA was determined to be >90%. The entire amount of encapsulated ascorbic acid was released in 68 days, and the entire amount of AgNpPGAs was released in 87 days of degradation. The influence of PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid on cell viability, generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in HepG2 cells, as well as antimicrobial activity against seven different pathogens was investigated. The 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay indicated good biocompatibility of these PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid particles. We measured the kinetics of ROS formation in HepG2 cells by a DCFH-DA assay, and found that PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid caused a significant decrease in DCF fluorescence intensity, which was 2-fold lower than that in control cells after a 5 h exposure. This indicates that the PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid microspheres either act as scavengers of intracellular ROS and/or reduce their formation. Also, the results of antimicrobial activity of PLGA/AgNpPGA/ascorbic acid obtained by the broth microdilution method showed superior and extended activity of these particles. The samples were characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, zeta potential and particle size analysis. This paper presents a new approach to the treatment of infection that at the same time offers a very pronounced antioxidant effect.

AB  - Nanospheres of poly(ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) with sizes smaller than 200 nm were produced by combining the freeze drying method and the physicochemical solvent/non-solvent approach. The influence of various types of cryoprotectants (poly(glutamic acid) (PGA) or sacharose) and their concentrations on the outcome of freeze-dried poly(ɛ-caprolactone) particles was evaluated. The physiochemical properties, structural and morphological characteristics of thereby obtained PCL particles were determined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The cytotoxicity of the samples was examined by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay (MTT assay). The formation of intracellular reactive oxygen species was measured spectrophotometrically using a fluorescent probe (DCFH-DA assay). In addition, the genotoxic response of PCL particles obtained using PGA as a cryoprotectant was investigated by the Comet assay. This paper focuses on the role of PGA in the synthesis of PCL particles and demonstrates that PGA plays a dual role in the synthesis, i.e. it acts as a stabilizer but also as a cryoprotective agent. The sufficient and optimal concentration of PGA for producing uniform, spherical but also biocompatible PCL nanoparticles is established to be 0.05%.
