Summary of "Turning solid into gel for high-efficient persistent luminescence-sensitized photodynamic therapy."

Bioavailable persistent luminescence material is an ideal internal light source for long-term photodynamic therapy, but inevitably suffers from low utilization efficiency and weak persistent luminescence due to corrosion and screening processes. Herein, we show a facile and smart "turning solid into gel" strategy to fabricate persistent luminescence hydrogel for high-efficient persistent luminescence-sensitized photodynamic therapy. The homogeneous persistent luminescence hydrogel was synthesized via dispersing high-temperature calcined persistent luminescence material without corrosion and screening into a biocompatible alginate-Ca hydrogel. The simple synthesis strategy allows 100% of utilization efficiency and intact persistent luminescence of persistent luminescence material. The persistent luminescence hydrogel possesses favorable biocompatibility, bright persistent luminescence, red light renewability, good syringeability, and strong fixing ability in tumors. The persistent luminescence hydrogel can be easily injected in vivo as a powerful localized light source for superior persistent luminescence-sensitized photodynamic therapy of tumors. The "turning solid into gel" strategy enables taking full advantages of persistent luminescence for biological applications, and shows great potential in utilizing diverse theranostic agents regardless of hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity.
