Summary Gold nanorods functionalised with transferrin were used for photothermally induced necrosis and apoptosis of cancer cells. It was observed that the laser energy required to induce cell apoptosis is significantly lower than that for cell necrosis, indicating that photothermally induced apoptosis can be used for medically safe laser cancer treatment.
