Folate Receptor-Targeted Theranostic Nanoconstruct for Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Imaging and Photodynamic Therapy.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We report the synthesis of a folate receptor (FR)-targeted theranostic nanocomposite for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) imaging and photodynamic therapy (PDT). FR-specific SERS detection and PDT are demonstrated in vitro using two FR-positive cancer cell lines and one FR-negative cancer cell lines.
