We discus methods for fabrication of silica and composite nanoparticles, which can be used in various biomedical applications. The most promising types of such nanostructures are hollow silica nanosheres, sil-ica coated plasmon-resonant nanoparticles (gold nanorods and gold-silver nanocages) and nanorattles. Mesoporous silica shell can be doped by desirable targeting molecules. Here we present the results of for-mation of nanocomposites composed of gold nanorods and double-layer silica shell. The secondary mesopo-rous silica shell is doped with a photosensitizer (hematoporphyrine in our case). We demonstate some of promising theranostics applications of these nanocomposites for bioimaging and in vivo therapy of tumors.
