A mitochondria-targeting photoacoustic modality using unmodified single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and pulse laser irradiation suppresses tumor growth by selectively destroying tumor tissue without causing epidermis injury, due to the higher mitochondrial transmembrane potential in cancerous cells than normal cells. A new photoacoustic method for cancer treatment is provided.
