We developed a new generation of  fluorescence markers for early detection of tumors. The same markers act as contrast agents in MRI allowing to detect internal tumors. The biodegradable conjugates of oxide nanoparticles with allow not only an early detection of cancers, but also increase chances of effective therapy.
