Polydopamine (PDA), a mussel-inspired molecule, has been recognized as attractive in cancer therapy due to a number of inherent advantages, such as good biocompatibility, outstanding drug-loading capacity, degradability, superior photothermal conversion efficiency, and low tissue toxicity. Furthermore, due to its strong adhesive property, PDA is able to functionalize various nanomaterials, facilitating the construction of a PDA-based multifunctional platform for targeted or synergistic therapy. Herein, recent PDA research, including targeted drug delivery, single-mode therapy, and diverse synergistic therapies against cancer, are summarized and discussed. For synergistic therapy, advanced developments are highlighted, such as photothermal/radiotherapy, chemo-/photothermal/gene therapy, photothermal/immune therapy, and photothermal/photodynamic/immune therapy. Finally, the challenges and promise of PDA for biomedical applications in the future are discussed.

Abstract Photothermal therapy (PTT) normally requires to maintain the temperature of tumor lesions above 50 °C, which potentially induces local inflammation and tumor metastasis. To avoid these side effects, it is vital to achieve effective antitumor efficacy at relatively low temperature (42–45 °C) during the PTT treatment. Herein, we design a polydopamine (PDA)-coated nucleic acid nanogel as a therapeutic complex for siRNA-mediated low-temperature PTT. First, siRNAs that target the heat-shock-...

Abstract Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists are the potent stimulants of innate immune system and hold promises as an adjuvant for anticancer immunotherapy. Unfortunately, most of them are limited by a prompt dissemination, and thus caused “wasted inflammation”. Hence, how to restrict their action radius into lymphoid tissues is of great relevance to enhance their efficacy and concomitantly alleviates the side effects. Here, imiquimod (R837), a TLR 7 agonist, was loaded into mesoporous polydopami...

Abstract Photonic therapy (e.g., photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photothermal therapy (PTT)), features easy handling, good targeting, high curative effect and lower side effects compared to other treatments, thus showing considerable potential in cancer treatment. However, adverse tumor microenvironment, low light conversion efficiency, and inherent toxicity of photonic agents limit their further application in clinic. In this work, hollow mesoporous MnO2 nanoparticles (NPs) loaded with photosens...

Combinational photo-based approaches with enhanced efficacy for cancer therapy have garnered increasing attention in recent years. In this work, a multifunctional system for synergistic photothermal and photodynamic cancer therapy was successfully prepared. The system consists of gold nanoflowers (AuNFs) conjugated with Chlorin e6 (Ce6), and then coated with a polydopamine (PDA) layer. AuNFs with diameters around 80 nm and a broad absorbance in the visible–near infrared (Vis–NIR) range of 500 to...

In this study, CuS@PDA nanoparticles were synthesized and used to create a novel tumor-targeting nanocomposite platform composed of copper sulfide@polydopamine–folic acid/doxorubicin (CuS@PDA–FA/DOX) for performing both photothermal and chemotherapeutic cancer treatment. The nanocomposite platform has ultrahigh loading levels (4.2 ± 0.2 mg mg−1) and a greater photothermal conversion efficiency (η = 42.7%) than CuS/PDA alone. The uptake of CuS@PDA–FA/DOX nanocomposites is much higher in MCF-7 cel...

The extreme complexity and heterogeneity of fatal tumors requires the development of combination phototherapy considering the limited therapeutic efficiency of conventional monomodal photodynamic therapy (PDT) or photothermal therapy (PTT). However, tumor-specific drug administration and the accompanying hypoxia-restrained PDT present the main obstacles for executing an efficient combination phototherapy. Developing a highly biocompatible, tumor-specific, near infrared absorbing, and oxygen (O2)...

Bladder cancer is a common urinary tract tumor in clinic, and its morbidity and mortality are always high. Surgical treatment is operator dependent, residual tumor cells often lead to tumor recurrence, and chemotherapy after surgery causes high side effects. So, it is urgent to develop new methods for the theranostics of bladder cancer. Among them, functional nanomaterials have shown good application in tumor theranostics, but they are rarely used in bladder cancer. In our work, we demonstrate t...

Despite the advances made in the fight against HER2-positive breast cancer, the need for less toxic therapies and strategies that avoid the apparition of resistances is indisputable. For this reason, a targeted nanovehicle for paclitaxel and trastuzumab, used in the first-line treatment of this subtype of breast cancer, had already been developed in a previous study. It yielded good results in vitro but, with the aim of further reducing paclitaxel effective dose and its side effects, a novel dru...

Abstract The increase in the number of resistant bacteria caused by the abuse of antibiotics and the emergence of biofilms significantly reduce the effectiveness of antibiotics. Bacterial infections are detrimental to our life and health. To reduce the abuse of antibiotics and treat biofilm-related bacterial infections, a biomimetic nano-antibacterial system, RBCM-NW-G namely, that controls the release of antibiotics through near infrared was prepared. The hollow porous structure and the high su...
