Metal nanoshells respond to near-infrared light for tumor imaging and therapy

Abstract:
Using metal nanoshells designed to both absorb and scatter near-infrared light, a team of investigators at Rice University has shown that such nanoparticles can both image and treat tumors in animals. Their experiments revealed complete tumor destruction in more than 80 percent of animals treated with these nanoshells ("Near-infrared resonant nanoshells for combined optical imaging and photothermal cancer therapy").
