Abstract

The data presented in this article are related to the research paper "Proof of concept of plasmonic thermal destruction of surface cancers by gold nanoparticles obtained by green chemistry" (Ben Hadadda et al, 2019). In this article, we examined plasmonic thermal destruction of murine melanoma using gold nanoparticles obtained by green chemistry. The presented data were obtained by measuring tumor volume and mice weight in different groups of mice murine melanoma B16F10 treated or not with the nanoparticles and coupled to laser irradiation. These data were compared to the clinical reference treatment: anti-PD1 monoclonal antibody. The data were analyzed in order to be able to compare the antitumor effect of our treatment (photothermal plasmonic therapy using gold nanoparticles) and the reference treatment.
