Summary A new conceptual nanoparticle consisting of a silica-coated iron oxide magnetic core and a fattigation-based biocompatibleshell with oleic acid and hydrophilic protein (gelatin). The prepared particle can be a usefultheranostics platform material for diagnostic imaging and as a drug delivery system. Oleic acid and gelatinwere conjugated on the silica-coated magnetic nanoparticle surface to provide three primary functionalities:1) enhancing biocompatibility and solubility in aqueous solution and providing the ability to incorporate hydrophobicchemical drugs into the shell for delivery, 2) improving treatment-response magnetic monitoring as a diagnosticagent with lownanotoxicity, and 3) increasing anticancer efficacy owing to the controlled release of theincorporated drug in cells and in an animal model. We prepared magnetic-silica nanoparticles with superparamagneticproperties,which are utilized as a T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging agent. After formationof an oleic acid-gelatin shell, the prepared materials exhibited high loading capacity for a hydrophobic anticancerdrug (paclitaxel). Our particle platform system exhibited higher therapeutic efficacy and lower toxicological effectsin vitro and in an in vivo cancermodel than a clinically available chemo-drug (Taxol®). Our findings stronglysuggest that this nanoparticle system can serve as a platform for cancer therapy by the incorporation of chemicaldrugs.
