Abstract:Multifunctional nanoparticles hold promise for enabling non-invasive image guided cancer therapy such as photothermal therapy. Human breast tumor models in which response to image guided therapy can quickly and non-invasively be determined are needed to facilitate translation and application of these technologies. We have developed a murine model capable of investigating the effects of photothermal ablative therapy and the fate of nanomaterials following photothermal therapy. The findings suggest the potential for a new paradigm for non-invasive breast cancer therapy.
