Ultrasmall Au(10-12)(SG)(10-12) nanomolecules for high tumor specificity and cancer radiotherapy.


Radiosensitizers can increase local treatment efficacy under a relatively low and safe radiation dose, thereby facilitating tumor eradication and minimizing side effects. Here, a new class of radiosensitizers is reported, which contain several gold (Au) atoms embedded inside a peptide shell (e.g., Au10-12 (SG)10-12 ) and can achieve ultrahigh tumor uptake… (More)
