Breaking free from vascular confinement: status and prospects for submicron ultrasound contrast agents
Published Online: Nov 17 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1502
While microbubbles are confined to remain in the vasculature, physiological consequences of tumor microvasculature afford opportunities for nanoscale agents to escape the intravascular space and expand bubble‐mediated potential. Here we review the status and prospects of nanoscale exogenous agents as ultrasound theranostic mediators, including nanobubbles, echogenic liposomes, gas vesicles, cavitation seeds, and nanodroplets, and we assess outstanding criticisms preventing their advance.

The protein corona on nanoparticles as viewed from a nanoparticle‐sizing perspective
Published Online: Oct 26 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1500
In biological fluids, an adsorption layer (biomolecular corona) forms on most nanoparticles and affects their interactions with the biological environment. Despite considerable progress, key aspects of corona formation and characterization of its structure and dynamics have remained elusive and call for further investigations.

Silk nanofibril self‐assembly versus electrospinning
Published Online: Feb 02 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1509
Biotechnological production of silks and implementation of advanced processing methods allow to harness the potential of the biomaterials. Self‐assembly of nanoscaled fibrils and electrospinnig of nanofibers allows various medical and technical applications due to their biocompatibility, environmental and mechanical robustness as well as high surface‐to‐volume ratio.

In vitro to in vivo benchmark dose comparisons to inform risk assessment of quantum dot nanomaterials
Published Online: Jan 19 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1507
Benchmark dose analysis can be used to compare effects of quantum dots in vitro to predict sensitivity of cell types, assays, and strains. Dosimetry was found to be critical for both in vitro and in vivo comparisons.
