Dextran based sensitive theranostic nanoparticles for near-infrared imaging and photothermal therapy in vitro

Author affiliations

Abstract

Indocyanine green (ICG) nanoparticles were developed via electrostatic interactions of ICG and dextran based block copolymers (PEG–dextran(–SS–NH2)) as near-infrared (NIR) theranostic nanoparticles. The nanoparticles could be activated from “OFF” to “ON” of NIR fluorescence in an intracellular environment and used for NIR imaging and photothermal therapy.
