Currently, several research facilities and Universities in the United States and around the world are conducting cancer studies using Gold Nanoparticles.

Some of theses Universities and research facilities include:

  • Rice University in Texas
  • Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech)
  • the University of Missouri
  • Stanford University
  • the University of Delaware
  • the University of Victoria, Canada,
  • the University of Queensland, Australia
  • the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India
  • the National Center for Nano-science and Technology, Beijing, China.

Some abbreviations will be used on this page.
Including the following:

Gold Nanoparticles

Colloidal Gold

Colloidal gold is sub-micrometer nanoparticles of gold suspended in a fluid, usually water.

The photo at the right (provided by Wikimedia), is an example of how the size of a gold nanoparticle, determines the color of the colloidal gold.

colloidal gold glass

Colloidal gold is not a new way of using nano gold, in fact, before the birth of Jesus Christ (BC), colloidal gold was used to make Ruby Red Glass.

Colloidal gold has also been used to make stained glass because of the vibrant colors it creates through its interaction with visible light.

Modern scientific experimentation with colloidal gold did not start until the 1850s.

In 1856, a famous British scientist named Michael Faraday accidentally created a ruby red solution while mounting pieces of gold leaf onto microscope slides, in a basement laboratory of the Royal Institute in London.

Faraday recognized that the color of colloidal gold was the result of how light is scattered by the small size of the gold particles.

This visual reaction between gold nanoparticles and light is called the Faraday-Tyndall effect.

How Small are Gold Nanoparticles?

A common question that people ask is: "How big are Gold Nanoparticles?"  

However, the best way to understand how gold nanoparticles work isn't in asking how big they are, but how small are they?

Gold Nanoparticles range in the size from 1 nm (nm = nanometer) in size to several hundred Nano-meters in size.

In comparison, atoms range in size from 0.1 to 0.5 nm

It can sometimes be hard to wrap your mind around how small a atom is, so this guide has posted the following comparison to help you visualize how small the nanoparticles are that are used in cancer research.

The size of a normal red blood cell is about 6 to 8 micrometers (6 - 8 μm = micrometer or micron).

A micrometer is equal to one-millionth of a meter, whereas 1 Nano-meter is one billionth of a meter.  (A meter is equal to 3.28 feet, or a little longer than a yard)

The graphic below offers realistic interpretation of the comparative size differences between a Red Blood Cell and a Gold Nanoparticle.

Gold Nanoparticle Shapes

different gold nano shapes

Researchers are using several different shapes and sizes in this technology.  It is still being determined what shape works best for killing cancerous cells.

Gold Nanoparticles come in a wide variety of shapes, including, sphere, rod, star and triangle, nano-triangles are also referred to as nano-pyramids. 

However, although Gold Nano-Rods, Stars and Triangles behave similarly to the gold nano-Spheres, their shapes optimize their light scattering characteristics.

In addition, Gold Nano-Rods have also been proven to enter a tumor more readily, than spheres.

What Makes Gold Nanoparticles
a Perfect Tool for
Fighting Cancer?

Gold Nanoparticles have a
Huge Surface Area

One of the many advantages that gold nanoparticles possess over other nanoparticles is that for their size they have an enormous surface area.

This amazing attribute of nano gold allows researchers to attach more molecules, antibodies or drugs to each individual nanoparticle.

The following information was taken from a Stanford University article that included information about the surface area of gold nanoparticles.

Gold Nanoparticles have a tremendous amount of surface area as compared with larger particles.

A cube of gold with sides 1 centimeter long has a total surface area of 6 square centimeters.

But the same volume filled with gold nano-spheres with diameters of 1 nano-meter has a surface area greater than half a football field.

Gold Nanoparticles
EPR Effect and
Surface Plasmon Resonance

gold nanoparticle

Gold Nanoparticles have a special property called the EPR Effect. 

EPR Effect stands for Enhanced Permeability and Retention Effect - this is a property where certain sized molecules tend to accumulate in cancer cells more than they do in normal cells.

So in other words, gold nanoparticles tend to act like mini magnets to cancer cells, they can target them, and accumulate on them without any outside help.

Furthermore, with Gold Nanoparticle's large surface area, researchers use them to bind molecules to enhance their cancer targeting properties.

Gold Nanoparticles &
Surface Plasmon Resonance

Gold Nanoparticles also exhibit a unique Physico-chemical property called "Surface Plasmon Resonance"

Surface Plasmon Resonance or SPR happens when focused light hits Gold Nanoparticles, causing the electrons in gold to resonate, and heat up.

When gold nanoparticles collect inside cancer, researchers will heat them up using lasers, the heated gold nanoparticles kill the cancer cells, without harming the healthy tissues surrounding the tumor.

Gold Nanoparticles 
Restrict Cancer Metastasis

Metastasis is the process by which cancer multiplies and spreads to other areas of the body.

In this process, Cancer cells over-produce a crawling or creeping outer membrane called lamellipodia, in addition attached to the lamellipodia are several tentacles called filopodia.

Cancer Cell

Lamellipodia and filopodia enable cancer cells to move to other tissues which allow cancer to metastasize and spread to other previously healthy areas of the body. 

The photo to the right is a magnified image of a cancer cell that shows the lamellipodia and filopodia.

However, recently two separate research studies have shown that Gold Nanoparticles can stop cancer cells from metastasizing.

1st Study of Gold Nanoparticles ability to Halt Cancer from Metastasizing

The first study comes from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).

In this study, the researchers coated gold nanoparticles with an antibody that sought out a protein that cancer cells use to produce lamellipodia and filopodia.

Once the particles attached to the cancer cells they blocked the protein's functions, reducing the growth of lamellipodia and filopodia which slowed the migration of the cancer cells.

Then after the gold nanoparticles had collected on the outside of the cancer cell, the researchers used a low-energy laser to heat up the particles causing the lamellipodia and filopodia melt and become mangled, which halted the cancer cell from metastasizing.

2nd Study of Gold Nanoparticles ability to Halt Cancer from Metastasizing

The second study is from the Department of General Surgery at the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University in Guangdong, China.

In this study, the researchers determined that cancer cells promote a cellular process called 'epithelial-mesenchymal transition'(EMT)

'EMT' is a process in which epithelial cells lose their polarity and gain increased motility, which is associated with metastasis and invasion of cancer cells.

The data demonstrated that Gold Nanoparticles (AuNPs) could induce tumor vasculature normalization and reverse EMT, resulting in decreased melanoma tumor metastasis.

How Do Gold Nanoparticles
Target Cancer Cells?

gold nanoparticle with anti-bodies

Researchers enhance Gold Nanoparticle's Enhanced Permeability and Retention effect by adding antibodies that contain bio-markers that will help them seek out cancer cells.

Once the antibodies find the cancerous cells in the body, the antibodies attach themselves to the tumor.

What are the Most Common Forms of GNPs Cancer Research

cancerous cell with gold nanoparticle with anti-bodies

Currently, there are several different methods used to kill cancer cells using Gold Nanoparticles.

Below, you'll find information about three of the most common methods researchers use to kill cancer cells with gold nanoparticles.

Further down the page, is a list of the latest articles on Gold Nanoparticle Cancer Research.

Gold Nanoparticles
Infrared Light & Lasers

Lasers and Infrared light are one of the most common methods researchers use to kill cancer cells with gold nanoparticles.

In this research, a test subject (mouse) has a cancerous tumor; the mouse is injected with gold nanoparticles treated with Antibodies to seek out the cancer cells.

Once the researchers know that the gold nanoparticles have reached the cancerous cells, they direct a laser or infrared light in the direction of the Tumor filled with the Gold NanoParticles. 

Through Surface Plasmon Resonance the light heats the gold nanoparticles, killing cancer cells, and destroying the tumor, while leaving the healthy tissue unscathed.

The videos describe how this is done.

Zapping Tumors with Gold Nanoshells and Light

GNPs & Drugs

Another common method of research using Gold Nanoparticles is to attach or infuse the GNPs with a drug or radiation. 

The researchers attach antibodies to the GNPs that also contain a DNA shell that instructs the shell to open once the GNPs have entered into their cancer target, delivering the drug.

There has been a lot of research using chemotherapy drugs attached to Gold Nanoparticles.  So far this research has shown the drug killing the tumor, with a lot less of the harmful effects associated with chemotherapy.

GNPs & Radiotherapy


Another commonly used method of research that kills cancer cells using gold nanoparticles incorporates the use of radio waves, this research is also known as radiotherapy. 

This form of cancer research involved injecting a test subject with gold nanoparticles with cancer targeting antibodies attached to them.

Once the gold nanoparticles had collected into the cancer cells, the area with the cancer, of the test subject, was placed under a radio wave machine.

Studies proved that this method killed the cancer cells using nano gold's Surface Plasmon Resonance properties while leaving the rest of the healthy tissues in the body unaffected.

Research Report #12

Dr. Ning Fang

is an Associate Professor of the Chemistry Department at Georgia State University.

Recently, Dr. Fang invented a new optical imaging tool that tracks and targets cancer cells, the invention is called 'SPORT' which is short for 'Single Particle Orientation and Rotational Tracking.

The first issue of this site's Gold Nanoparticle Cancer Research News covered Dr. Fang's work, seen here.

In addition, in December of 2017, 'the Signal' a Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) student paper, released this article about Dr. Fang's work: On the Road to Ending Cancer - The Signal

In the article from 'the Signal' Dr. Fang stated the following:

"Most cancer therapy treatments often kill both cancer cells and healthy cells. However, 'SPORT' only kills the main target, which is the cancer cell, and leaves the healthy cells unaffected. The use of gold nanoparticles is ultimately safer for cancer patients."  Dr. Ning Fang

Dr. Emily Day

Dr. Emily Day is an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Delaware and is the Principal Investigator of the 'Day Group.'
