Abstract

This work is aimed at engineering photosensitizer embedded nanoparticles (NPs) that produce optimal amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) for photodynamic therapy (PDT). A revised synthetic approach, coupled with improved analytical tools, resulted in more efficient PDT. Specifically, methylene blue (MB) conjugated polyacrylamide nanoparticles (PAA NPs), with a polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate (PEGDMA, Mn 550) cross-linker, were synthesized so as to improve the efficacy of cancer PDT. The long cross-linker chain, PEGDMA, increases the distance between the conjugated MB molecules so as to avoid self-quenching of the excited states or species, and also enhances the oxygen permeability of the NP matrix, when compared to the previously used shorter cross-linker. The overall ROS production from the MB-PEGDMA PAA NPs was evaluated using the traditional way of monitoring the oxidation rate kinetics of anthracence-9,10-dipropionic acid (ADPA). We also applied singlet oxygen sensor green (SOSG) so as to selectively derive the singlet oxygen (1O 2) production rate. This analysis enabled us to investigate the ROS composition mix based on varied MB loading. To effectively obtain the correlation between the ROS productivity and the cell killing efficacy, a microfluidic chip device was employed to provide homogeneous light illumination from an LED for rapid PDT efficacy tests, enabling simultaneous multiple measurements while using only small amounts of NPs sample. This provided multiplexed, comprehensive PDT efficacy assays, leading to the determination of a near optimal loading of MB in a PAA matrix for high PDT efficacy by measuring the light-dose-dependent cell killing effects of the various MB-PEGDMA PAA NPs using C6 glioma cancer cells.
