Nitric oxide (NO) is a crucial gaseous medium for tumor growth and progression, but it may also cause mitochondrial disorder and DNA damage by drastically increasing its concentration in tumor. Due to its challenging administration and unpredictable release, NO based gas therapy is difficult to eliminate malignant tumor at low safe doses. To address these issues, herein, we develop a multifunctional nanocatalyst called Cu-doped polypyrrole (CuP) as an intelligent nanoplatform (CuP-B@P) to deliver the NO precursor BNN6 and specifically release NO in tumors. Under the aberrant metabolic environment of tumors, CuP-B@P catalyzes the conversion of antioxidant GSH into GSSG and excess HO into ·OH through Cu/Cu cycle, which results in oxidative damage to tumor cells and the concomitant release of cargo BNN6. More importantly, after laser exposure, nanocatalyst CuP can absorb and convert photons into hyperthermia, which in turn, accelerates the aforesaid catalytic efficiency and pyrolyzes BNN6 into NO. Under the synergistic effect of hyperthermia, oxidative damage, and NO burst, almost complete tumor elimination is achieved in vivo with negligible toxicity to body. Such an ingenious combination of NO prodrug and nanocatalytic medicine provides a new insight into the development of NO based therapeutic strategies. STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE: A hyperthermia-responsive NO delivery nanoplatform (CuP-B@P) based on Cu-doped polypyrrole was designed and fabricated, in which CuP catalyzed the conversion of HO and GSH into ·OH and GSSG to induce intratumoral oxidative damage. After laser irradiation, hyperthermia ablation and responsive release of NO further coupled with oxidative damage to eliminate malignant tumors. This versatile nanoplatform provides new insights into the combined application of catalytic medicine and gas therapy.Copyright © 2023 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
