Gold nanoparticles conjugated to cyclo-[Arg-Gly-Asp-D-Phe-Lys(Cys)] peptides (AuNP-c[RGDfK(C)]) have been reported as systems with specific cell internalization in breast cancer cells. AuNPs have also been proposed as localized heat sources for cancer treatment using laser irradiation or radiofrequency (RF). The aim of this research was to analyze, based on… CONTINUE READING
