The development of hybrid particles for tumor diagnosis and therapy has received considerable attention because they are capable of combining tumor diagnosis and treatment concurrently. So far hybrid particles for efficient and safe tumor theranostics are still very limited. Herein we have designed a new type of hybrid particles and evaluated its potential to be used in image-guided cancer diagnosis and therapy without the need of any toxic anticancer or contrast agents. The hybrid particles, consist of magnetic IP: nanoparticles On: Mon, which09 areSep embedded 2019 05:20:33 in the poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) cores and gold shells on chitosan (CTS)
