Abstract: Development of biocompatible nanomaterials with multiple functionalities for combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy has attracted tremendous attention in cancer treatment. Herein, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) modified polydopamine (PDA) nanoparticles were successfully developed as a favorable biocompatible nanoplatform for co-loading antitumor drugs and radionuclides to achieve imaging-guided combined radio-chemotherapy. It is demonstrated that PEGylated PDA nanoparticles can effectively load two different drugs including sanguinarine (SAN) and metformin (MET), as well as radionuclides I-131 in one system. The loaded SAN and MET could inhibit tumor growth via inducing cell apoptosis and relieving tumor hypoxia, while labeling PDA-PEG with I-131 enables in vivo radionuclide imaging and radioisotope therapy. As revealed by the therapeutic efficacy both in cell and animal levels, the multifunctional PDA nanoparticles (I-131-PDA-PEG-SAN-MET) can effectively repress the growth of cancer cells in a synergistic manner without significant toxic side effects, exhibiting superior treatment outcome than the respective monotherapy. Therefore, this study provides a promising polymer-based platform to realize imaging-guided radioisotope/chemotherapy combination cancer treatment in future clinical application.
