IMPORTANCE OF THE FIELD Plasmonic nanoparticles provide a new route to treat cancer owing to their ability to convert light into heat effectively for photothermal destruction. Combined with the targeting mechanisms possible with nanoscale materials, this technique has the potential to enable highly targeted therapies to minimize undesirable side effects. AREAS COVERED IN THIS REVIEW This review discusses the use of gold nanocages, a new class of plasmonic nanoparticles, for photothermal… CONTINUE READING
