Plasmonic Nanoheaters Enable Photothermal Cancer Therapy

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
In vitro and in vivo studies have positively correlated the heat generation of plasmonic nanoparticles with their potential as cancer-killing agents. Using a single-particle and positron emission tomography (PET)-based platform, researchers from the University of Copenhagen quantified the photothermal efficiency of near-infrared (NIR) -resonant silica-gold nanoshells (AuNSs) and benchmarked this against the heating of colloidal spherical, solid gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). The researchers reported that both in vitro and in vivo (with live mice as subjects), the heat generation of the...Read full article
