Multifunctional Gold Nanostars for Cancer Theranostics (Springer Theses) 1st
This thesis presents the development of theranostic gold nanostars (GNS) for multimodality cancer imaging and therapy. Furthermore, it demonstrates that a novel two-pronged treatment, combining immune-checkpoint inhibition and GNS-mediated photothermal nanotherapy, can not only eradicate primary treated tumors but also trigger immune responses to treat distant untreated tumors in a mouse animal model.
The biocompatible gold nanostars with superior capabilities for cancer imaging and treatment have great potential for translational medicine applications.
