Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising strategy in cancer treatment that utilizes photosensitizers (PSs) to produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) and eliminate cancer cells under specific wavelength light irradiation. However, special tumor environments, such as those with overexpression of glutathione (GSH), which will consume PDT-mediated ROS, as well as hypoxia in the tumor microenvironment (TME) could lead to ineffective treatment. Moreover, PDT is highly light-dependent and therefore can be hindered in deep tumor cells where light cannot easily penetrate. To solve these problems, we designed oxygen-dual-generating nanosystems MnO2@Chitosan-CyI (MCC) for enhanced phototherapy. Methods: The TME-sensitive nanosystems MCC were easily prepared through the self-assembly of iodinated indocyanine green (ICG) derivative CyI and chitosan, after which the MnO2 nanoparticles were formed as a shell by electrostatic interaction and Mn-N coordinate bonding. Results: When subjected to NIR irradiation, MCC offered enhanced ROS production and heat generation. Furthermore, once endocytosed, MnO2 could not only decrease the level of GSH but also serve as a highly efficient in situ oxygen generator. Meanwhile, heat generation-induced temperature increase accelerated in vivo blood flow, which effectively relieved the environmental tumor hypoxia. Furthermore, enhanced PDT triggered an acute immune response, leading to NIR-guided, synergistic PDT/photothermal/immunotherapy capable of eliminating tumors and reducing tumor metastasis. Conclusion: The proposed novel nanosystems represent an important advance in altering TME for improved clinical PDT efficacy, as well as their potential as effective theranostic agents in cancer treatment.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT), as one of the most powerful photo-therapeutic strategies for cancer treatment with minimum invasiveness, can effectively damage local tumor cells and significantly induce systemic antitumor immunity. However, current nanotechnology-assisted PDT-immunomodulators has either poor penetration for deep tumors or low singlet oxygen generation. Herein, we construct a novel theranostic nanocarrier (HA-PEG-CyI, HPC) by inducing the self-assembly of PEGylated CyI and attaching ...

: Fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) is routinely utilized in clinical centers around the world, whereas the combination of FGS and photodynamic therapy (PDT) has yet to reach clinical implementation and remains an active area of translational investigations. Two significant challenges to the clinical translation of PDT for brain cancer are as follows: (1) Limited light penetration depth in brain tissues and (2) Poor selectivity and delivery of the appropriate photosensitizers. To address these s...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an anticancer strategy utilizing light-mediated activation of a photosensitizer (PS) which has accumulated in tumor and/or surrounding vasculature. Upon activation, the PS mediates tumor destruction through the generation of reactive oxygen species and tumor-associated vasculature damage, generally resulting in high tumor cure rates. In addition, a PDT-induced immune response against the tumor has been documented in several studies. However, some contradictory resul...

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) as a noninvasive therapy mode has attracted considerable attention in the field of oncotherapy. However, the PDT efficacy is restricted either by tumor hypoxia environment or the inherent properties of photosensitizers (PSs) including bad water solution, photobleaching, and easy aggregation. Herein, we designed and synthesized a new 2D metal-organic framework Sm-TCPP nanosheets by assembling transition metal ion (Sm3+) and PSs (TCPP), on which the catalase (CAT)-mimick...

Phototheranostics, which combines deep tissue imaging and phototherapy [photodynamic therapy (PDT) and/or photothermal therapy (PTT)] via light irradiation, is a promising strategy to treat tumors. Near-infrared (NIR) cyanine dyes are researched as potential phototheranostics reagents for their excellent photophysical properties. However, the low singlet oxygen generation efficiency of cyanine dyes often leads to inadequate therapeutic efficacy for tumors. Herein, we modified an indocyanine gree...

Abstract null null Glutathione (GSH) is an important member of cellular antioxidative system. In cancer cells, a high level of GSH is indispensable to scavenge excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) and detoxify xenobiotics, which make it a potential target for cancer therapy. Plenty of studies have shown that loss of intracellular GSH makes cancer cells more susceptible to oxidative stress and chemotherapeutic agents. GSH depletion has been proved to improve the therapeutic efficacy of ROS-bas...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory disease that is prevalent worldwide and seriously threatens human health. Though traditional drug therapy can alleviate RA symptoms and slow progression, high dosage and frequent administration would cause unfavorable side effects. Phototherapy including photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photothermal therapy (PTT) has demonstrated distinctive potential in RA treatment. Under light irradiation, phototherapy can convert light into heat, or generate ROS, to...
