NIR light-induced imaging-guided cancer therapy is an encouraging route in the cancer theranostic field. Herein, we describe a novel nanoscale proposal, which is established by covalently implanting core-shell structured upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) with nanographene oxide (NGO) by a process utilizing polyethylene glycol (PEG), and consequently loading Chlorin e6 (Ce6) onto the surface of NGO. The acquired NGO-UCNP-Ce6 (NUC) nanocomposites can not only be employed as upconversion luminescence (UCL) imaging probes of cells and whole-body animals with high contrast for diagnosis, but also can generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) under 808 nm light excitation for photodynamic therapy (PDT); over and above, they can swiftly and proficiently translate the 808 nm photon into thermal energy for photothermal therapy (PTT)...

We have developed a class of blackbody materials, i.e., hyperbranched Au plasmonic blackbody (AuPB) of compact sizes (< 50 nm). The AuPB was prepared in a seedless and surfactant-free approach based on the use of mussel-inspired dopamine. Strong intraparticle plasmonic coupling among branches in close proximity leads to intense and uniform broadband absorption across 400-1350 nm. The blackbody absorption imparts the compact AuPB with a superior photothermal efficiency of >80% and closely matched photothermal activity in the first near-infrared (NIR-I) and the second near-infrared (NIR-II) spectral windows, making it a rare broadband theranostic probe for integrated photoacoustic imaging and photothermal therapy (PTT)...

Porous silicon nanoparticles (PSiNPs) and gold nanorods (AuNRs) can be used as biocompatible nanocarriers for delivery of therapeutics, but undesired leakage makes them inefficient. By encapsulating the PSiNPs and AuNRs in a hydrogel shell, we create a biocompatible functional nanocarrier that enables sustained release of therapeutics. Here, we report the fabrication of AuNRs conjugated PSi nanoparticles (AuNRsPSiNPs) through two-steps chemical reaction for high-capacity loading of hydrophobic and hydrophilic therapeutics with photothermal property...

In this study, a versatile tumor-targeted and multi-stimuli-responsive drug delivery vehicle (Se particle@porous silica-folic acid-copper sulfide/doxorubicin (Se@SiO2-FA-CuS/DOX)) was fabricated for combined photothermal therapy with chemotherapy in cancer treatment. Due to excellent targeting ability, the Se@SiO2-FA-CuS/DOX nanocomposites actively accumulated in tumor tissues and thus provided photothermal therapy under NIR irradiation and chemotherapy through the release of DOX and Se. Owing to the synergistic effect of chemotherapy (Se and DOX) and photothermal therapy, the Se@SiO2-FA-CuS/DOX nanocomposites could efficiently inhibit cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo and even completely eliminate tumors...

The anticancer therapy on basis of reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated cellular apoptosis has achieved great progress. However, this kind of theraputic strategy still faces some challenges such as light, photosensitizer and oxygen (O2) dependence. In this article, a ROS-mediated anticancer therapy independent of light, photosensitizer and oxygen was established based on a Fe2+-induced ROS-generating nano-system. First, artemisinin (ART) was loaded in porous magnetic supraparticles (MSP) by a nano-deposition method...

Poor water-solubility of artesunate (ARS) hampers its clinical application. We here covalently linked ARS to PEGylated nanographene oxide (nGO-PEG) to obtain ARS-modified nGO-PEG (nGO-PEG-ARS) with excellent photothermal effect and dispersibility in physiological environment. nGO-PEG-ARS induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) and peroxynitrite (ONOO─) generations. Although nGO-PEG with near-infrared (NIR) irradiation did not induce cytotoxicity, the photothermal effect of nGO-PEG under NIR irradiation enhanced not only cell uptake but also ONOO─ generation of nGO-PEG-ARS, resulting in the synergistic chemo-photothermal effect of nGO-PEG-ARS in killing HepG2 cells...

The development of biocompatiable efficient photothermal coupling agent (PCA) for image-guided photothermal therapy of cancer has gained increasing interests in recent years. Although various PCAs have been developed, the clinical translations of these materials have been largely hindered by the potential biosafety issues and challenges of scaling-up manufactures. In this research, we proposed nano-sized indocyanine green (ICG) J-aggregate (IJA) as a promising PCA which is fabricated by a very facile method using clinical-approved ICG as the only excipient...

Combination cancer treatment has emerged as a critical approach to achieve remarkable anticancer effect. In this study, we prepared a theranostic nanoformulation that allows for photoacoustic imaging as well as combination gene and photothermal therapy. Gold nanorods (GNR) were coated with dipicolyl amine (DPA), which forms stable complexes with Zn(2+) cations. The resulting nanoparticles, Zn(II)/DPA-GNR, recognize phosphate-containing molecules, including siRNA, because of the specific interaction between Zn(II) and the phosphates...

The use of gold nanorods (AuNRs) that produce heat in response to near infrared (NIR) irradiation is an attractive approach to cancer photothermal therapy. AuNRs are usually prepared by using a highly toxic detergent: cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). Thus, the removal of CTAB from the reaction mixture, and further stabilization of the surface of the AuNRs is required. In the present study, AuNRs were encapsulated in a multifunctional envelope-type nano device (AuNR-MEND) formed with an SS-cleavable and pH-activated lipid-like material...

Photothermal/photodynamic therapies (PTT/PDT) have been widely accepted as non-invasive therapeutic modalities to erase tumours. However, both therapies face the problem of precisely locating tumours and reducing their side effects. Herein, chlorin e6 conjugated gold nanorod, (Ce6-PEG-AuNR), a type of gold nanorod-photosensitizer conjugate, is designed as a kind of nano-therapeutic agent to simultaneously realize combined PTT/PDT. Compared to free Ce6, the fluorescence of Ce6 adhered to the conjugate is effectively quenched by the longitudinal surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) of in the Ce6-PEG-AuNR...
