Novel Carbon Nitride Nanowire (CNW) Conjugates for Breast Cancer Treatment
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
In this program we have tested the concept that carbon nitride nanowires (CNWs)-conjugated to Herceptin can selectively target and photo-thermally ablate HER2-positive breast cancer tissues using penetrating near infrared radiation (1.06 microns). Our initial results in cell culture suggest that CNWs are far superior transducers of radiation to the SWNTs or Ag nanoshells due to their metallic nature and aspect ratio. Initial animal studies have begun.
