Spindle‐Like Polypyrrole Hollow Nanocapsules as Multifunctional Platforms for Highly Effective Chemo–Photothermal Combination Therapy of Cancer Cells in Vivo
Yang Wang, Yun Xiao, Prof. Ruikang Tang
Undercover double agent: Spindle‐like polypyrrole hollow nanocapsules (PPy HNCs) can load and deliver anticancer drugs with high efficiencies; meanwhile, the polypyrrole (PPy) shells are an excellent agent for organic photothermal therapy (see figure; DOX=doxorubicin). Two cancer therapy methods were successfully combined to significantly improve the effect of tumor therapy in vitro and in vivo.
