Hypoxia as one characteristic hallmark of solid tumors has been demonstrated to involve in cancer metastasis and progression, induce severe resistance to oxygen-dependent therapies and hamper the transportation of theranostic agents. To address these issues, an oxygen self-produced sonodynamic therapy (SDT) nanoplatform involving modified fluorocarbon (FC) chains-mediated oxygen delivery protocol has been established to realize highly-efficient SDT against hypoxic pancreatic cancer. In this nanoplatform, mesopores and FC chains of FC chainsfunctionalized hollow mesoporous organosilica nanoparticles (FHMONs) carriers can provide sufficient storage capacity and binding sites for sonosensitizers (IR780) and oxygen, respectively. In vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrate the nanoplatform involving this distinctive oxygen delivery protocol indeed breaks the hypoxia-specific transportation barriers, supplies sufficient oxygen to hypoxic PANC-1 cells especially upon exposure to ultrasound irradiation and relieves hypoxia. Consequently, hypoxia-induced resistance to SDT is inhibited and sufficient highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced to kill PANC-1 cells and shrinkage hypoxic PANC-1 pancreatic cancer. This distinctive FC chains-mediated oxygen delivery method provides an avenue to hypoxia oxygenation, and holds great potential in mitigating hypoxiainduced resistance to those oxygen-depleted therapies, e.g., photodynamic therapy (PDT), radiotherapy, chemotherapy, etc.
