1. Poly N-acryloyl-(L-phenyl alanine methyl ester) hollow nanocapsules facilitate sustained delivery of immunomodulatory drugs and exhibit adjuvant properties, Nanoscale, 2017,9, 14006-14014 
     Polymeric hollow nanocapsules have attracted significant research interest as novel drug carriers and their preparation is of particular concern for their feasibility to encapsulate a broad range of drug molecules. This work presents for the first time the synthesis and development of a novel poly-N-acryloyl L-phenylalanine methyl ester hollow core nanocapsules (NAPA-HPN’s) of Avg. size ca. 100-150 nm prepared by mini-emulsion technique.  NAPA-HPN’s are biocompatible and capable of encapsulating sodium nitroprusside (SNP) at a rate of ~1.3 µM per mg of capsules. These NAPA-HPN’s + SNP nano-formulations while maintaining homeostasis of macrophages which carries and facilitate the action of various drug molecules used against the various disease. These NAPA-HPN’s also facilitated the prolonged release of the low level of Nitric oxide (NO) and enhanced metabolic activities of pro-inflammatory macrophages which are important for the action of various drugs in body fluids. NAPA-HPN’s mediated skewing of naïve macrophages toward M1 phenotype potentially emonstrated its adjuvant action on the innate immune system. These results potentially suggested that NAPA-HPN’scan serve both as a carrier of the drugs as well as an adjuvant for the immune system. Thus, these nanocapsules could be used for the effective management of various infectious or tumor diseases where immune-stimulation is paramount for treatment. Keywords: pNAPA nanocapsules, nitric oxide delivery, immunomodulator, adjuvant action, Nanomedicine

2. ZnO nanocapsules for the induction of enhanced antigen-specific immunological responses, Nanoscale, 2017 (Accepted, August, 2017), 10.1039/C7NR03697C

   The application of nanotechnology in vaccinology have fuelled rapid advancement towards design and development of nanovaccines. Nanoparticles have been found to enhance the vaccine efficacy through precise size and exclusive capacity to encapsulate a wide range of biomolecules and their sustained release at the targeted sites. Herein, we have designed a novel mesoporous ZnO nanocapsule (mZnO) having size ~ 12nm with average pore diameter of 2.5nm, using surfactant-free sonochemical method and investigated its immunomodulatory properties by using Ova loaded mZnO nanocapsules[mZnO(Ova)] in a mice model. Our finding exemplifies that mZnO(Ova) administration steered enhanced expansion of antigen-specific T-cells and induction of IFN-γ producing effector CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells. Also, antigen-specific IgG levels were enriched in both  serum and lymph nodes of mZnO(Ova) immunized mice. Further, we noticed a substantial increase in serum IgG2a or IgG2b levels and IFN-γ secretion in Ova restimulated splenocytes from mZnO(Ova) immunized mice, indicating that mZnO(Ova) skew Th1 type immune response. Overall, the uniqueness of mZnO nanocapsules in term of defined particle to pore numbers ratio (maximum of three cavities per particle), allows to load antigens efficiently. Given these features in combination with its immunomodulatory characteristics reinforces that mZnO could be used as an effective antigen-adjuvant platform for the development of novel nano-based vaccines against multiple disease.
 

3. Bio-inspired synthesis of Hierarchical Self-Assembled Zinc phosphate nanostructure in presence of Cowpea Mosaic Virus: in vitro cell cycle, proliferation and prospective for tissue regeneration, Biomedical Materials 2017 Aug 8. doi: 10.1088/1748-605X/aa84e9.   

Self-assembly is an important auto-organization process used in designing structural biomaterials which have potential capabilities in healing tissues after traumatic injuries. Notwithstanding, various materials with healing ability after injuries are available, substantial need still exists for developing new material to endorse the healing ability. To address this issue, we have developed a hierarchical 3-dimensional (3D) self-assembled zinc phosphate (Zn3(PO4)2) in presence of cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV). Zn3(PO4)2 nanoparticles are self-assembled into nanosheets with a high degree of isotropy and then self-organized into 3D structure having functionality that enhanced surface interactions with biological entities. The self-assembly structure has been formed through the auto organization of the nanoparticles of size ~50 nm in the influences of CPMV. The cellular response of self-assembled Zn3(PO4)2 and cell-particle adhesion behavior have been investigated through in vitro studies using modeled osteoblast-like MG63 cells. Self-assembled Zn3(PO4)2 resulted up to 310% cell proliferation with the MG63 cells within 7 days of incubation. A 15% higher in proliferation was obtained compared to the commercially available hydroxyapatite (HAp). Immunofluorescent analysis of MG63 cells after co-culturing with self-assembled Zn3(PO4)2 confirmed the healthy cytoskeleton organization and dense proliferation of MG63 cells. Further, Zn3(PO4)2 exhibited ~28% of cell-cycle progression in S phase, which is higher in value compared to the commercially available HAp. Overall, these results demonstrates the multiple functions of hierarchical self-assembled Zn3(PO4)2 to the regeneration of bone tissues without defects and with increasing the cellular network formation, and directed us for its use in bone tissue engineering. Keywords: Self-assembly nanoparticles; zinc phosphate; bio-synthesis; cowpea mosaic virus; cell proliferation; tissue engineering.

 

 

4. Designing idiosyncratic hmPCL-siRNA Nanoformulated Capsules for Silencing and Cancer Therapy, Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology, and Medicine 2016, 12(3)579-588. (IF: 6.692)
 
 In this work, we have designed a siRNA-nanoformulation with mesoporous polycaprolactone (hmPCL) for silencing and cancer therapy. Average hollow core size of hmPCL nanocapsules used for nanoformulation is ~180 nm with shell thickness of 10-20 nm and mesopore size of ~5-10 nm in diameter. Idiosyncratic capsules are biocompatible which has been confirmed with normal lymphocyte, K562 leukaemia cancer cells and on HepG2/EGFP cancer cells. In 1 mg of hmPCL capsules up to 400 ng of siRNA can be loaded. This nanoformulation is enable to tune the dose dependent delivery up to ~93.25% (373 ng) siRNA during therapy. hmPCL-siRNA nanoformulation mediated siRNA transfection on HepG2 cancer cells has been investigated and exhibited 32% silencing activity within 24 hrs of post transfection. Obtained results directed us that the hmPCL-siRNA nanoformulation could be an efficient tool in siRNA mediated therapy for knocking down of the infected cells. KEYWORDS. Hollow-mesoporous-PCL nanocapsules, Nanoformulation, siRNA silencing, cancer therapy.

 

5. Nanoporous capsules of block co-polymer of [(MeO-PEG-NH)-b-(L-GluA)]-PCL for control release of anticancer drugs for therapeutic applications, Nanotechnology 27 (2016) 125101 (12pp). (IF: 3.573)

 Herein, new nanoporous capsules of block co-polymers MeO-PEG-NH-(L-GluA)10 and polycaprolactone (PCL) have been synthesized through surfactant free, cost effective self-assembled soft-templating approach for control release of drugs and for therapeutic applications. Nanoporous polymer capsules designed are biocompatible and are capable of encapsulating anticancer drugs (e.g., doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX) and imatinib mesylate (ITM)) with a high extent (~279 ng/µg and ~480 ng/µg, respectively). We have developed nanoformulation of porous MeO-PEG-NH-(L-GluA)10-PCL capsules with DOX and ITM. The porous polymer nanoformulations have been programmed in terms of release of anticancer drugs with a desired dose to treat the leukemia (K562) and human carcinoma cells (HepG2) in vitro and show promising IC50 values with a very high mortality of cancer cells (upto ~96.6%). Our nanoformulation arrests the cell divisions due to “cellular scenescence” and kill the cancer cells specifically. Present findings could be enriched the effectiveness of idiosyncratic nanoporous polymer capsules to use them in various other nanomedicinal and biomedical applications such as for killing cancer cells, immune therapy and gene delivery. Keywords: Polymer capsules, nanopores, nanomedicine, cancer therapy, DOX, ITM.

6. CPMV induced synthesis of Hollow-meso porous SiO2 Nanocapsules with excellent performance in Drug delivery, Dalton Trans., 2015,44, 4308-4317.

An idiosyncratic hollow porous-SiO2 nanocapsule has been synthesized at room temperature using unmodified Cowpea mosaic Virus (CPMV) as a template, and without using any catalyst or surfactant during synthesis. The average size of the capsules synthesized is ~200-250 nm with 60-100 nm hollow core these nanocapsules have been characterized through high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). Biocompatibility of the hollow mesoporous SiO2 nanocapsules has been investigated with MTT assay using the RAW 264.7, HepG2 and Hek293 cell lines. Nanocapsules are loaded with fluorescent molecules (rhodamine 6G), doxorubicin (DOX) an anticancer drug and chloroqunine diphosphate (CQDP) an antimalarial drug and their release were studied through UV-Vis spectrometer. Development of surfactant free, bio-safe, hollow and porous SiO2 nanocapsules with CPMV has provided a route of synthesis of porous nanocapsules towards drug loading and sustained delivery of drugs. The synthesis method of hollow porous bio-SiO2 nanocapsules using CPMV is novel and straight forward, further demonstrating the generality of the nano-formulated capsules that can be used for various drug deliveries based therapeutic applications. To check the efficacy of our materials a non-cancerous cell lines Hek293 (human embryonic kidney cells) and HepG2 (human carcinoma cells) cell lines are used and studied the cell viability of DOX loaded hollow silica nanocapsules. Results show that our bio SiO2 nanocapsules synthesized with CPMV is an effective cargo in nano formulating with DOX and the resultant nanoformulation is very promising in killing cancer specific cells. Keywords: Cowpea mosaic virus, Hollow silica nanocapsules, Dye/Drug delivery.

7. Facile Synthesis of Self-Assembled Spherical and Mesoporous Dandelion Capsules of ZnO: Efficient Carrier for DNA and Anti-cancer Drugs, J. Mater. Chem. B, 2014, 2, 3956-3964.  

This work presents a new facile strategy to fabricate self-assembled spherical and mesoporous submicron-sized capsules, ‘dandelions’ of ZnO nanorods and nanoparticles. Self-assemble ‘dandelions’ capsules have been synthesized from Zn(Ac)2 and  Igepal CO-520. The mechanistic approach for the growth of self-assembled ZnO capsules has been elucidated. Physical characteristics of the novel capsules responsible for biomedical applications have been studied through XRD, Raman, UV-Vis-NIR, XPS and EPR. The mechanical stability of the capsules has been characterized through the high energy ultrasound with time scale in 10% PBS buffer. The biocompatibility of the capsules has been investigated with a cell based study using normal lymphocyte and K562 cancer cells through MTT assay. The loading and release efficiency of the fluorescent molecules (Rhodanine 6G), anti-cancer drugs (doxorubicin hydrochloride, DOX), and nucleic acid (DNA) have been investigated. All the results indicate the high potential of self-assembled ZnO ‘dandelions’ capsules in relevant applications in medical biotechnology, such as for sustained drug delivery with the formation of {(ZnO)nᵟ+-(DOX)m} complex and gene delivery with the formation of {(ZnO)nδ+-(DNA)m complex formation. The fabrication of such type of self-assembled idiosyncratic capsules is very simple, feasible, and cost effective, and demonstrate improved performances in drug and gene delivery applications. Keywords: self-assembly, dandelion capsules, ZnO- mesopores, DNA, {(ZnO)nᵟ+-(DOX)m}.

8. Malaria  and Nanomedicine (Biomed. Phys. Eng. Expresshttps://doi.org/10.1088/2057-1976/aaaddb).
Plasmodium falciparum is resistant to all antimalarial drugs and a challenge for treatment. With this respect, formulations of antimalarial drugs with polymeric capsules with nanostructure carry a significant signature to suppress the resistance and to kill the Plasmodium falciparum. In this work, idiosyncratic hollow mesoporous polycaprolactone (ihmPCL) capsules were designed through ultrasonic-template synthesis approach with hollow core of dia. ca. ~ 450 nm and shell thickness of ca. ~30 nm and pore size of ca. ~ 8-9 nm. Then two formulations of ihmPCL capsules with Dihydroartemisinin (DHA) and Chloroquine diphosphate (CQDP) have been developed. ihmPCL capsules are capable to load  200.0 µg of DHA and 18.6 µg of CQDP  per mg of capsules. With this formulation we can empowered to tune the doses of DHA and CQDP with time and temperature (30°C- 43°C). It is observed that up to 143.20 µg (~71.6 %) of DHA and 17.71 µg (~95.2 %) of CQDP release can be controlled at different essential conditions which further can be sustained for longer period of time. Further, the half-maximum inhibitory concentration (IC50) have been investigated with these formulations and calculated to be 66.60 nM and 25.14 nM for DHA and CQDP, respectively in P. falciparum inhibition in vitro.  Based on the unique release behaviour of these antimalarial drugs a “temperature clock” module have been proposed for further accelerate the inhibition rate of P. falciparum infection. In conclusion, the PCL-DHA and PCL-CQDP formulations developed in this work could be effective in knocking down the P. falciparum infection and is paramount for treatment of malaria. KEYWORDS: Porous polymer capsules; nanoformulation; antimalarial drugs; P. falciparum; ‘temperature clock’.

9. Silver nanoparticles embedded mesoporous SiO nanosphere: an effective anticandidal agent against Candida albicans 077. Nanotechnology. 2015 Jul 17; 26(28):285102. doi: 10.1088/0957-4484/26/28/285102. 

Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that causes common infections such as denture stomatitis, thrush, urinary tract infections, etc. Immunocompromised patients can become severely infected by this fungus. Development of an effective anticandidal agent against this pathogenic fungus, therefore, will be very useful for practical application. In this work, Ag-embedded mesoporous silica nanoparticles (mSiO2@AgNPs) have successfully been synthesized and their anticandidal activities against C. albicans have been studied. The mSiO2@AgNPs nanoparticles (d ∼ 400 nm) were designed using pre-synthesized Ag nanoparticles and tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) as a precursor for SiO2 in the presence of cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) as an easily removable soft template. A simple, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly approach has been adopted to synthesize silver (Ag) nanoparticles using silver nitrate and leaf extract of Azadirachta indica. The mesopores, with size-equivalent diameter of the micelles (d = 4-6 nm), were generated on the SiO2 surface by calcination after removal of the CTAB template. The morphology and surface structure of mSiO2@AgNPs were characterized through x-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), particle size analysis (PSA), atomic force microscopy (AFM), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The HRTEM micrograph reveals the well-ordered mesoporous structure of the SiO2 sphere. The antifungal activities of mSiO2@AgNPs on the C. albicans cell have been studied through microscopy and are seen to increase with increasing dose of mSiO2@AgNPs, suggesting mSiO2@AgNPs to be a potential antifungal agent for C. albicans 077.
