Pt nanozyme for O2 self-sufficient, tumor-specific oxidative damage and drug resistance reversal†
Herein, an ultrathin Pt nanozyme has been developed. The Pt nanozyme exhibited both oxidase and peroxidase-mimetic properties, leading to relieved hypoxia and specific oxidative damage in tumor cells in a cascade manner. Meanwhile, hydrophilic Pt2+ was released sustainably under tumor acidity. These properties endow the Pt nanozyme with great potential in killing drug resistant tumor cells while not damaging normal cells.
