    Abstract
    Multimodal imaging in the second near-infrared window guided cancer therapy is a highly precise and efficient cancer theranostic strategy. However, it is still a challenge to develop activated NIR-II optical imaging and therapy agents. In this study, we develop a pH-responsive hybrid plasmonic-fluorescent vesicle by self-assembly of amphiphilic plasmonic nanogapped gold nanorod and fluorescent down-conversion nanoparticles , showing remarkable and activated NIR-II fluorescence /NIR-II photoacoustic imaging performances. The hybrid vesicle also exhibited superior loading capacity...
