Gold nanorod mediated plasmonic photothermal therapy: a tool to enhance macromolecular delivery.


Plasmonic photothermal therapy (PPTT) with gold nanostructures has been used to generate significant heat within tumors to ablate vasculature. Here we report the use of gold nanorod (GNR) mediated PPTT to induce moderate hyperthermia as a tool to enhance the delivery of macromolecules. GNRs were injected intravenously in a mouse sarcoma (S-180) tumor model… (More)
