Photodynamic therapy (PDT) employs a photosensitizer (PS) and visible light in the presence of oxygen, leading to production of cytotoxic reactive oxygen species, which can damage the cellular organelles and cause cell death. In dermatology PDT has usually taken the form of topical application of a precursor in the heme biosynthesis pathway, called 5-aminolevulinic acid (or its methyl ester), so that an active PS, protoporphyrin IX accumulates in the skin. As PDT enhances dermal remodeling and resolves chronic inflamation, it has been used to treat cutaneous disorders include actinic keratoses, acne, viral warts, skin rejuvenation, psoriasis, localized scleroderma, some non-melanoma skin cancers and port-wine stains...

BACKGROUND: Widespread methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and absence of effective antimicrobial agents has led to limited therapeutic options for treating MRSA infection. We aimed to evaluate the effect of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) on the expression of novel identified methicillin resistance markers (NIMRMs) in S. aureus using complementary DNA-Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (cDNA-AFLP) approaches to address the therapeutic alternatives for MRSA infections...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In psoriatic lesions, fluorescence diagnosis with blue light can detect protoporphyrin IX accumulation, especially after topical 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) application. However, variable fluorescence distributions, interpersonal variations and long incubation time limit its wide application in clinic. This study is aimed to identify a consistent and convenient method to facilitate diagnosis and evaluation of psoriatic lesions. METHODS: 104 psoriatic lesions from 30 patients were evaluated...

We have investigated the accumulation of porphyrins in Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) by 5-aminolevulinic acid hydrochloride (ALA) and its esters, ALA methyl ester hydrochloride (mALA), ALA octyl ester hydrochloride (oALA), and ALA benzyl ester hydrochloride (bALA). From the fluorescence spectra of porphyrins accumulated in P.acnes, the order of porphyrin accumulation is as follows: ALA≫mALA≈bALA>oALA (≈0). Moreover, the PDT efficacy is reduced in the order of ALA>mALA≈bALA>oALA (≈without additives)...

BACKGROUND: Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is an effective treatment for certain non-melanoma skin cancers. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a biomedical imaging modality that permits high-resolution imaging of the epidermis and dermis with the potential to detect both healthy tissue and tumour. OCT may also provide a means of detecting and differentiating between the various histological subtypes of basal cell carcinomas (BCC) in vivo. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective ex vivo study was to evaluate the efficacy of OCT in recognising healthy and pathological margins of excised BCC lesions and detecting different BCC subtypes...

Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) as a new non-invasive treatment developed from photodynamic (PDT), it can kill tumor cells specifically and selectively. Moreover, recently studies showed SDT has potential to treat solid tumor, leukemia and atherosclerosis, remove proliferative scars and kill pathogenic microorganism. As SDT has an extensive application prospect, SDT attracts more and more researchers in recently years. This thesis aims at making an informative introduction on SDT. With the assistance of related literature from 2012 to 2016, we introduce the progress of SDT research in six aspects: the therapeutic mechanism of SDT, development of the sound sensitizer, exploration of the size and frequency of ultrasonic energy, application of SDT, comparison between SDT and PDT, and current situation and future of SDT...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 6-7 million people are infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas' disease. Only two therapeutic compounds have been found to be useful against this disease: nifurtimox and benznidazole. These drugs have been effective in the acute phase of the disease but less effective in the chronic phase; they also have many side effects. Thus, the search for new compounds with trypanocidal action is necessary. Natural products can be the source of many important substances for the development of drugs to treat this infection...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) using photosensitizer drug becomes important therapeutic modality in recent days. However, the stability and targeted delivery of photosensitizer remain critical challenge for efficient PDT treatment. In the present study, we developed chlorin e6 (Ce6)-conjugated and folic acid (FA)-decorated silica nanoparticles (silica-Ce6-FA) for targeted delivery of photosensitizer to the cancer cells. The synthesized NPs exhibited excellent stability and biocompatibility with MDA-MB-231 cells...

Ultradeformable liposomes (UDLs) as a drug delivery system (DDS), prepared from the unsaturated phospholipid, dioleylphosphocholine (DOPC), and containing the non-ionic surfactant Tween 20 as edge activator, have been explored as topical vehicles for zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc) and the nitrosyl ruthenium complex [Ru(NH.NHq)(tpy)NO](3+) (RuNO) as a photosensitizers for co-generation of (1)O2 and NO as reactive species, respectively. However, in order to ensure that ZnPc was present in the UDLs in its monomeric form - essential for maximal ZnPc photophysical properties - it was necessary to replace 40wt% of the DOPC with the saturated phospholipid, dimyristoylphosphocholine (DMPC)...

Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), a biochemical converted from 5-aminolevulinc acid (5-ALA) in living cells, is useful for intraoperative fluorescent detection of cancer metastasis in lymph nodes (LNs). However, unknown is whether the fluorescence of PpIX can be detected in the LNs when they coexist with indigo carmine, a blue dye commonly used for identification of sentinel LNs during surgery. To address this issue, we sought to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of PpIX fluorescence in the presence of indigo carmine in a mouse LN metastasis model of rectal cancer after administration of 5-ALA...

BACKGROUND: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) represents a palliative treatment option for a selected group of patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). PDT induces a local inflammatory reaction with the potential to initiate antitumor immune responses. However, the systemic impact on peripheral immune cells has not been described so far. METHODS: HNSCC patients (n=9) were treated with PDT in a palliative setting. All patients had previously undergone several oncologic treatment regimens...

Selection of an efficient light source is fundamental in the development of photodynamic therapy (PDT) protocols. However, few studies provide a comparison of different light sources with regard to phototoxic effects. Here, we compared the cell death induced by photoactivation of chloro-aluminiumphtalocyanine (AlClPc)-loaded human serum albumin nanoparticles under irradiation with different light sources: continuous laser (CL), pulsed laser (PL), and light-emitting diode (LED). Cells were exposed to three different AlClPc concentrations (1, 3, and 5μM) and three different light doses (200, 500, and 700mJ/cm(2)) for each light source...

Pemphigus vulgaris (PV) is an autoimmune disorder resulting from the interaction between autoantibodies and desmoglein. Here, we report a case of PV developed after 5-aminolaevulinic acid-based photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT). The harmful and deleterious effects of UV radiation on the onset, during course, and perpetuation of PV have been observed for decades. Correlation between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and PV have also been reported. Oxidative proteins, which are modified by ROS, and subsequent production of antibodies by immune system seem to be responsible for PV developed following ALA-PDT...
