Laser immunotherapy with gold nanorods causes selective killing of tumour cells

Publication year: 2011 Source: Pharmacological Research, Available online 17 November 2011 C.S. Rejiya, Jatish Kumar, V Raji, M. Vibin, Annie Abraham Therapeutic approaches that exploit nanoparticles to deliver drugs selectively to cancer cells are currently considered one of the most promising avenues in the area of cancer therapeutics. Recently, gold nanorods (Au NRs) have shown promising biological applications due to their unique electronic and optical properties. In this paper, we have demonstrated the anti-cancer potential of gold nanorods with low power laser light
