Use of Magnetic Nanoparticles for Thermolysis of Cells in a Ferrofluid
New results are presented on hyperthermia of biological cells. Thermolysis of cells was obtained using a radio-frequency magnetic field without macroscopic heating of the solution. These effects are possible because of the availability of a new generation of magnetic nanoparticles: the ionic magnetic fluid. It is also demonstrated that hyperthermia is very sensitive to the type of coating of the magnetic particle.
