Figure 4

(a) Anti-EGFR antibody binding assay shows the antibody function before and after conjugation to the PEGylated gold nanorod. (b) Cell viability assay summarizes the percentage of cells dead after photothermal therapy with laser only, laser plus PEGylated nanorods, and laser plus nanorods conjugated to the anti-EGFR antibody.
