Photodinamic therapy

Manuela Rizzi, Stelvio Tonello, Bianca Martins Estevão, Enrica Gianotti, Leonardo Marchese, Filippo Renò
Photodinamic therapy (PDT) has gained an increasing interest as a new tool to treat skin cancers such as melanoma. This clinical approach take advantage from the combination of a photosensitizer and a specific light wavelength able to induce singlet oxygen production. Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) have been widely investigated as drug nanocarriers as their structure and morphology could be customized to produce suitable nanoplatforms enabling high cargo capacity. In the present study MSNs were successfully conjugated with the second generation photosensitizer verteporfin and the resulting nanoplatform (Ver-MSNs) was tested in an in vitro PDT model as a potential tool for melanoma treatment...

OBJECTIVES: This report describes the result of prospective randomized trial to assess effectiveness and safety of neoadjuvant photodynamic therapy (PDT) and chemotherapy as well as possibility for further surgery for locally advanced NSCLC. METHODS: Patients with stage IIIA and IIIB central NSCLC (main bronchus/distal trachea involvement) who were not initially eligible for surgery but might be considered as surgery candidates after neoadjuvant therapy were enrolled in the study...
