A dendrimer porphyrin (DP)-coated gold nanoshell (AuNS-DP) was prepared for the synergistic combination of photodyanmic and photothermal therapy. The resultant AuNS-DP successfully exhibited the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as photothermal effect for the simultaneous application of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photothermal therapy (PTT).
