Hybrid organic-inorganic near-infrared responsive magnetic nanoparticles were synthesized for theragnosis combined with localized therapy. In detail, inorganic super-paramagnetic nanoparticles were embedded inside organic polyaniline matrix, which enables localized photothermal therapy upon NIR illumination under intracellular acidic/oxidative condition. In this structure, super-paramagnetic nanoparticle works as MRI contrast agent, that enables the visualization of a tumor and polyaniline works for near-infrared responsive tumor ablation.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
