Abstract

The metastasis of cancer cells is a vital aspect of disease progression and therapy. Although a few nanoparticles (NPs) aimed at controlling metastasis in cancer therapy have been reported, the NPs are normally combined with drugs, yet the direct therapeutic effects of the NPs are not reported. To study the direct influence of NPs on cancer metastasis, the potential suppression capacity of CuS@mSiO2-PEG NPs to tumor cell migration, a kind of typical photothermal NPs, was systemically evaluated in this study. Using CuS@mSiO2-PEG NP stimulation and a transwell migration assay, we found that the migration of HeLa cells was significantly decreased. This phenomenon may be associated with two classical proteins in metastasis: matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) and matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9). In addition, the mechanism may closely associate with non-receptor tyrosine kinase protein (SRC)/focal adhesion kinase (FAK) signaling pathway which varies in vivo and in vitro. To confirm the differences in the expression of SRC and FAK, related inhibitors were studied for additional comparison. Also, the results indicated that even though the migration inhibition was closely related to SRC and FAK signaling pathway, there may be another unknown regulation mechanism existing and its metastasis inhibition was significant. Confirmed by long-term survival curve study, CuS@mSiO2-PEG NPs significantly reduced the metastasis of cancer cells and improved the survival rates of metastasis in a mouse model. Thus, we believe that the direct influence of NPs on cancer cell metastasis is a promising study topic.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 December 2017.
All research outputs
#9,862,088
of 12,350,579 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Nanomedicine
#1,896
of 2,429 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#249,559
of 349,097 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Nanomedicine
#65
of 107 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,350,579 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,429 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.0. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 349,097 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 107 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
