Abstract

A new type of drug-delivery system (DDS) was constructed, in which the anti-cancer drug doxorubicin (DOX) was conjugated to the ultra-small sized (sub-10 nm) BaGdF5:Yb3þ/Tm3þ based upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs). This multifunctional DDS simultaneously possesses drug delivery and optical/ magnetic/X-ray computed tomography imaging capabilities. The DOX can be selectively released by cleavage of hydrazone bonds in acidic environment, which shows a pH-triggered drug release behavior. The MTT assay shows these DOX-conjugated UCNPs exhibit obvious cytotoxic effect on HeLa cells. Moreover, to improve the upconversion luminescence intensity, coreeshell structured UCNPs were constructed. The in vitro upconversion luminescence images of these UCNPs uptaken by HeLa cells show bright emission with high contrast. In addition, these UCNPs were further explored for T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) and X-ray computed tomography (CT) imaging in vitro. Long-term in vivo toxicity studies indicated that mice intravenously injected with 10 mg/kg of UCNPs survived for 40 days without any apparent adverse effects to their health. The results indicate that this multifunctional drugdelivery system with optimized size, excellent optical/MR/CT trimodal imaging capabilities, and pHtriggered drug release property is expected to be a promising platform for simultaneous cancer therapy and bioimaging.
