Hypoxia Induced by Upconversion-Based Photodynamic Therapy: Towards Highly Effective Synergistic Bioreductive Therapy in Tumors.
Treatment with TPZ-UC/PS plus NIR laser resulted in a remarkably suppressed tumor growth as compared to UC-PDT alone, implying that the delivered TPZ has a profound effect on treatment outcomes for the much-enhanced cytotoxicity of TPZ under PDT-induced hypoxia. Expand
PEGylated NaHoF4 nanoparticles as contrast agents for both X-ray computed tomography and ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging.
A novel type of NaHoF4 nanoparticles (NPs) with varied particle sizes were synthesized and explored as high-performance dual-modality contrast agents for ultra-high field MR and CT imaging. Expand
Intelligent MnO2 Nanosheets Anchored with Upconversion Nanoprobes for Concurrent pH-/H2O2-Responsive UCL Imaging and Oxygen-Elevated Synergetic Therapy.

Chemodynamic Therapy: Tumour Microenvironment-Mediated Fenton and Fenton-like Reactions.
Various strategies based on the Fenton reaction have been employed to enhance hydroxyl radical generation, including nanomaterials selection, modulation of the reaction environment, and external energy fields stimulation, which are discussed systematically in this Minireview. Expand
Magnesium silicide nanoparticles as a deoxygenation agent for cancer starvation therapy.
It is shown that an injectable polymer-modified magnesium silicide (Mg2Si) nanoparticle can act as a DOA by scavenging oxygen in tumours and form by-products that block tumour capillaries from being reoxygenated. Expand
Radiation-/hypoxia-induced solid tumor metastasis and regrowth inhibited by hypoxia-specific upconversion nanoradiosensitizer.
This study confirms the radiotherapeutic benefits of utilizing nanoradiosensitizer as adjuvant to low-dose RT, and the results demonstrate the highly efficient hypoxia-specific killing in oxygen-dependent anti-tumor therapies. Expand
Antiferromagnetic Pyrite as the Tumor Microenvironment-Mediated Nanoplatform for Self-Enhanced Tumor Imaging and Therapy.
A novel TME-mediated nanoplatform employing antiferromagnetic pyrite nanocubes is presented, exploiting the intratumoral, overproduced peroxide for self-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and photothermal therapy (PTT)/chemodynamic therapy (CDT) to develop a synergetic nanotheranostic.

Pyroelectric nanoplatform for NIR-II-triggered photothermal therapy with simultaneous pyroelectric dynamic therapy
Photothermal therapy (PTT) has been attracting much attention because of its high efficiency and ease of use. Currently deployed PTT, however, shows two main deficiencies: limited penetration depthExpand
Scintillator-Based Nanohybrids with Sacrificial Electron Prodrug for Enhanced X-ray-Induced Photodynamic Therapy.
The potential of LAPNP to enhance the effects of X-PDT has been demonstrated by using two-step amplification of fluorescence produced by nanoscintillators to increase the yield of hydroxyl radicals. Expand
Sensitive imaging and effective capture of Cu(2+): Towards highly efficient theranostics of Alzheimer's disease.
The design and synthesis of a novel yet smart nanoprobe that could not only inhibit the Aβ aggregation-induced apoptosis via capturing overmuch Cu(2+) but also accelerate the nontoxic structural transformation of Aβ. Expand
