Preparation and Characterization of Nano-Hydroxyapatite Nanomaterials for Liver Cancer Cell Treatment
Nano-hydroxyapatite was synthesized by means of the hydrothermal treatment. The effects of nanohydroxyapatite material on the behaviour of G2 liver cancer cells were explored. About 50% of cell viability was lost in nHAp material treated cells at 200 °[email protected] h, followed by ∼30% in nHAp treated cells at 100 °[email protected] h. Compared with control, nHAp material treated cells at 200 °[email protected] h showed 60% and nHAp material treated cells at 100 °[email protected] h showed 15% morphological change. Moreover, 50% of cell death was observed at 24 h incubation with nHAp material treated at 200 °[email protected] h cells and 56% cell death at 48 h incubation and hence alters and disturbs the growth of cancer cells. In contrast, the nHAp material treated at 100 °[email protected] h protects the cells and could be used for liver cancer cell treatment.
