Title: SYSTEM FOR THERMOTHERAPY TREATMENT OR PREVENTION OF ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANT OR BIOFILM INFECTIONS
Abstract:
The system comprises a support to receive a nanoparticle assembly (NPA) and to be conveyed towards a localized area of an organism infected or at risk to be infected by microorganisms; said nanoparticle assembly (NPA) comprising a plurality of nanoparticles (NPs) each one (NP) having a metal core and a surface surrounding said metal core, the metal core being reactable to thermal energy; and an energy unit (15) configured to apply at least one thermal shot on said localized area exposed to the nanoparticle assembly, increasing the temperature of said localized area via the. nanoparticle assembly (NPA), so enabling a nanotheranostic multimodal antimicrobial therapy, wherein the metal core being made of silver, gold, iron or a mixture of silver and gold.
