A novel cell-targeting, near-infrared light-responsive drug delivery platform based on mesoporous silica-coated gold nanorods that are surface-functionalized with aptamer DNA is constructed. Aptamer DNA is used as both capping and targeting agent. In vitro studies show the feasibility of using this nanocarrier for targeted and noninvasive remote controlled drug delivery and photothermal therapy.
