Near-Infrared Polymeric Nanoparticles with High Content of Cyanine for Bimodal Imaging and Photothermal Therapy.

The discovery and synthesis of theranostic nanomedicines with high loading of imaging and therapeutic agents is challenging. In this work, a polymer assembling strategy was used to make nanoparticles with exceptionally high loading of theranostic agent. As an example, poly(heptamethine) was synthesized via multicomponent Passerini reaction, and then… (More)
