Paper Title:
Near-IR Sensitive Au-Au2S Nanoparticles with Biocompatibility for Drug Delivery
  Abstract

The near-infrared (NIR) sensitive Au-Au2S nanoparticles (NPs) have shown many advantages as potential drug delivery systems. To further investigate biological safety of Au-Au2S NPs, cytotoxicity was estimated by calcein AM/EthD-1 fluorescence staining and the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release. The effects of NPs on apoptosis of CHL cells were determined by flow cytometry with Annexin V-FITC/PI double staining. It is evident that the Au-Au2S NPs are non-cytotoxic below IC50 dosage.
