Effects of food‐borne nanomaterials on gastrointestinal tissues and microbiota
Published Online: May 26 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1481
Interactions of nanoparticles in the gastrointestinal tract and subsequent uptake are complex. Firstly, nanoparticles interact with the harsh conditions within the intestinal lumen and the food components therein. Upon contact with the gastrointestinal epithelium some nanoparticles might be taken up by cells. The middle picture shows the uptake of silver nanoparticles by M cells in vitro. Yet underexplored are the interaction of nanoparticles with the gastrointestinal microbiome.

Nanotherapeutic systems for local treatment of brain tumors
Published Online: May 24 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1479
Summary of various nanotherapeutic systems currently being investigated for the local treatment of brain tumors. Convection‐enhanced delivery allows effective administration of therapeutics into brains using an external device; cell encapsulation delivers therapeutic cells with matrices or particles; nanoparticles can be modified in many ways to enhance the delivery and release of therapeutics; hydrogels and microchips/microdevices can serve as local depots for sustainable delivery of therapeutic agents.

An update on carbon nanotube‐enabled X‐ray sources for biomedical imaging
Published Online: Apr 11 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1475
Carbon nanotube (CNT) technology can be used to create compact and rapidly responsive X‐ray sources. These CNT‐enabled sources are ideal for the repetitive imaging steps needed to capture three‐dimensional information and have allowed the development of unique preclinical research tools as well as human imaging devices.

Ultra‐small superparamagnetic iron oxides for metastatic lymph node detection: back on the block
Published Online: Apr 06 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wnan.1471
Combidex‐enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 3 T of a 53‐year‐old patient with recurrent prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy and radiotherapy (PSA‐level 3.9 ng/mL). Twenty‐seven hours after administration of Combidex benign lymph nodes have accumulated the contrast agent, becoming black on a three‐dimensional (3D) iron‐sensitive MRI scan. Metastatic lymph nodes retain signal and therefore stay white. A large (7 mm) metastatic lymph node is visible on Combidex‐enhanced MRI as a white spherical structure in two orthogonal planes through the node [blue circles in coronal (a) and axial images (b)]. A smaller metastatic white node (2–3 mm) is indicated with red circles in the coronal (c) and axial (d) reconstructions (orthogonal planes through the node of interest) of the 3D data set. The other small spherical structures are blood vessels, best appreciated when scrolling through the 3D image data set.
