Gold nanomaterials possess unique physical and chemical properties, which attracted much attention in recent years. As a new type of gold nanomaterials, gold nanostars (GNSTs) have been prepared and characterized in this study. GNSTs under near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation can exert not only cancer photothermal therapy via heat production but also photodynamic therapy via generation of reactive oxygen species. GNSTs were able to enter the cytoplasm as well as nuclei of human breast michigan… CONTINUE READING
