Non-Invasive Synergistic Treatment of Brain Tumors by Targeted Chemotherapeutic Delivery and Amplified Focused Ultrasound-Hyperthermia Using Magnetic Nanographene Oxide

The combination of chemo-thermal therapy is the best strategy to ablate tumors, but how to heat deep tumor tissues effectively without side-damage is a challenge. Here, a systemically delivered nanocarrier is designed with multiple advantages, including superior heat absorption, highly efficient hyperthermia, high drug capacity, specific targeting ability, and molecular imaging, to achieve both high antitumor efficacy and effective amplification of hyperthermia with minimal side effects.
