Background: Combining the multimodal imaging and synergistic treatment in one platform can enhance the therapeutic efficacy and diagnosis accuracy.
Results: In this contribution, innovative Mn-doped Prussian blue nanoparticles (MnPB NPs) were prepared via microemulsion method. MnPB NPs demonstrated excellent T1 and T2 weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enhancement in vitro and in vivo. The robust absorbance in the near infrared range of MnPB NPs provides high antitumor efficacy for photothermal therapy (PTT) and photoacoustics imaging property. Moreover, with the doping of Mn, MnPB NPs exhibited excellent Fenton reaction activity for chemodynamic therapy (CDT). The favorable trimodal imaging and Fenton reaction enhanced mild temperature photothermal therapy in vitro and in vivo were further confirmed that MnPB NPs have significant positive effectiveness for integration of diagnosis and treatment tumor.
Conclusions: Overall, this Mn doped Prussian blue nanoplatform with multimodal imaging and chemodynamic/mild temperature photothermal co-therapy provides a reliable tool for tumor treatment.
