The combination of multiple therapeutic and diagnostic functions is fast becoming a key feature in the area of clinical oncology. The advent of nanotechnology promises multifunctional nanoplatforms with the potential to deliver multiple therapeutics while providing diagnostic information simultaneously. In this study, novel iron oxide-gold core–she...

Recent years have seen considerable progress in the development of nanomedicine by the advent of 2D nanomaterials serving as ideal platforms to integrate multiple theranostic functions. We synthesized multifunctional stimuli-responsive 2D-based smart nanocomposites (NCs), comprising gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and superparamagnetic iron oxides (SPIO...

Recent efforts in the area of photothermal therapy (PTT) follow two important aims: (i) selective targeting of plasmonic nanoparticles to the tumor and (ii) real-time guidance of PTT operation through employing multimodal imaging modalities. In the present study, we utilized a multifunctional theranostic nanoplatform constructed from iron (III) oxi...

... Here, NIR activation simultaneously combines thermo-chemotherapy with accelerated drug release. In order to visualize the biodistribution of the graphene-based nanocomposites (NCs) in vivo, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) NPs were anchored on GO nanosheet surface to enable computed tomography (CT) [40][41][42][43] and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [44][45][46]. The surface of the NCs was also modified with an alginate (Alg) polymer hydrogel to improve their biocompatibility and colloidal stability under physiological conditions [47]. ...
... This way, we would be able to discriminate between NPTT responding animals and non-responding ones. To this end, we selected one of the simplest and the basic NPTT procedures as the therapeutic method, which has already been set up in our lab [12,[22][23][24][25][26][27][28]. Such an NPTT procedure was based on using a 532-nm laser beam and spherical AuNPs and we applied this method to CT26 colon tumor-bearing BALB/c mice. ...
