We have developed a new targeted image-guided photoresponsive drug delivery system (DDS) based on a dual locking strategy. Excitation of the DDS by fluorescent light results in the first unlocking and activation of the drug, and allows real-time monitoring of the prodrug. Extended irradiation results in a second unlocking, giving drug release within cancer cells.
