We fabricated de novo biocompatible mineral plasmon resonants for localized and systemic treatment of cancer. Biodegradable calcium-phosphate gold nanocomposites were synthesized for inducing a superior surface plasmon resonance effect. The combination of therapeutic antibody, Erbitux ® and NIR laser with nanocomposites demonstrated the potential for selective bimodal cancer treatment by combination of EGFR-induced signaling inhibition as a systemic treatment and localized photothermal effects caused by the NIR laser.
