Abstract : The present invention relates to a nano-sized material that can provide contrast enhancement for multiple molecular imaging mthods and also deliver therapeutic nucleic acids or chemodrugs at a specific site of disease such as cancer. In particular, the present invention relates to a nanosized synthetic calcium apatite based materials showing contrast imaging for visible to near-infrared fluroscence, magnetic resonance imaging and x-ray imaging together with targeted delivery of nucleic acid drugs (DNA or RNA) to specific cancer types.
