Inflammatory cytokine responses in macrophage cells (Raw264.7) exposed to gold nanorods (GNRs) depend on surface coating materials and on the concentration of the GNRs. At a high concentrations of GNRs, methoxy(polyethylene glycol)-thiol coated GNR (PEG-GNR) can be a good candidate for use in biological systems.
