A new method combined with immunity, electroporation and nano-TiO2 photo-catalysis was successfully used to kill LoVo cancer cells. At first monoclonal antibody was adsorbed on the surface of nano-TiO2 particles, then the antibody-nano-TiO2 conjugates would adsorb on the membrane of LoVo cells spontaneously. Electroporation method was used to produce micro holes on the membrane of LoVo cells, which promoted the entering of antibody-nano-TiO2 conjugates into the cancer cells. Under the irradiation of ultra violet light, the cancer cells could be killed based on the photocatalysis effect of nano-TiO2 particles within cells. The results show that the combined technique is very efficient for killing cancer cells. In the case of using low concentration of antibody-nano-TiO2 as 3.12 μg/mL, and under the irradiation of ultra violet light at 4 mW/cm2, all of the LoVo cancer cells could be killed within 30 min. The photo-killing effi-ciency for LoVo cancer cells was much higher than that for human normal skin cells, indicating the high selectivity of this method. This novel combination method might be used as a new technique for the cancer treatment in the future.
