AbstractChitosan nanoparticles (CSNPs) ionically crosslinked with tripolyphosphate salts (TPP) were employedas nanocarriers in combined drug delivery and magnetic hyperthermia (MH) therapy. To that aim, threedifferent ferrofluid concentrations and a constant 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) concentration were efficientlyencapsulated to yield magnetic CSNPs with core-shell morphology. In vitro experiments using normalcells, fibroblasts (FHB) and cancer cells, human glioblastoma A-172, showed that CSNPs presented a dose-dependent cytotoxicity and that they were successfully uptaken into both cell lines. The application ofa MH treatment in A-172 cells resulted in a cell viability of 67–75% whereas no significant reduction ofcell viability was observed for FHB. However, the A-172 cells showed re-growth populations 4 h after theapplication of the MH treatment when CSNPs were loaded only with ferrofluid. Finally, a combined effectof MH and 5-FU release was observed with the application of a second MH treatment for CSNPs exhibitinga lower amount of released 5-FU. This result demonstrates the potential of CSNPs for the improvementof MH therapies
