Dual-triggered oxygen self-supply black phosphorus nanosystem for enhanced photodynamic therapy.

Nonspecific distribution of photosensitizer and the intrinsic hypoxic condition in the tumor microenvironment are two key factors limiting the efficacy of O2-dependent photodynamic therapy (PDT). Herein, a dual-triggered oxygen self-supported nanosystem using black phosphorus nanosheet (BPNS) as both photosensitizer and nanocarrier was developed to enhance… CONTINUE READING
