Abstract: Electroporation-based cancer treatment techniques are currently after activeinvestigations in the field of drug delivery, optimization of electrical parameters andelucidation of the exact mechanisms at a molecular level. The present study is designed toinvestigate the exact in vivo redistribution and persistence of nanoparticles in the tumor tissue of colon-cancer grafted mice after electroporation with two different kinds of electrodes.The aim of the study is to avoid artifacts during electroporation due to accumulation ofnanoparticles in the surrounding non-cancer tissues. The isolated electrodes are appropriate for the treatment of 3-dimensional tumors and have a large potential in this field.Keywords: Electroassisted drug delivery, in vivo imaging, Cancer, Nanoparticles, Quantum dots.
