Phototherapy is a useful noninvasive therapy, but it can induce cutaneous malignant tumours, including squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). We report on a 79-year-old man who had long-standing mycosis fungoides for 40 years, which had been treated with psoralen ultraviolet A therapy for 37 years at a dose of approximately 5000 J/cm(2) . Approximately 6 years before presentation, numerous types of cutaneous malignancies, including actinic keratosis, BCC and SCC, had begun to develop all over the patient's body...

Trastuzumab is a therapeutic monoclonal antibody that selectively recognizes HER2/neu receptor for targeting breast cancers. In this study, we aimed to present a strategy to combine chemo and phototherapy and targeted delivery via monoclonal antibody for enhanced anticancer effects. We co-loaded a chemotherapeutic agent, rapamycin, and a photosensitizer, polypyrrole, in trastuzumab-conjugated liposomes (LRPmAb) for combined chemo-photothermal therapy. LRPmAb had small size (172.2±9.6nm), narrow distribution, and negative ζ-potential (-12...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death among females worldwide. Among various types of breast cancer, the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-overexpressing breast cancer is known to be more aggressive and often resistant to medicinal treatment, leading to an insufficient prognosis and poor susceptibility to chemotherapy and/or hormonal therapy in the current clinic. These circumstances implicate that developing an improved therapeutic strategy rather than persistently changing the anticancer drugs for trying is truly needed to successfully cure this type of breast cancer...

Indeterminate cell histiocytosis is a rare disease belonging to the group of malignant histiocytic diseases. The disease predominantly affects the skin. The disease appeared in the described patient at the age of 80 years. Morphs began to develop on the skin and rapidly spread over the whole body including the face. Only the hands and feet were left uncovered. The patients skin samples were taken from 2 sites for histological examination. The resulting conclusion was indeterminate cell histiocytosis. The treatment we chose was analogous to the procedures for Langerhans cell histiocytosis...

Intratumoral (IT) drug injections reduce systemic toxicity, but delivered volumes and distribution can be inconsistent. To improve IT delivery paradigms, porphyrin-phospholipid (PoP) liposomes are passively loaded with three hydrophilic cargos: sulforhodamine B, a fluorophore; gadolinium-gadopentetic acid, a magnetic resonance (MR) agent; and oxaliplatin, a colorectal cancer chemotherapeutic. Liposome composition is optimized so that cargo is retained in serum and storage, but is released in less than 1 min with exposure to near infrared light...

Hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) occurs when fetal and neonatal erythroid cells are destroyed by maternal erythrocyte alloantibodies, it leads to anemia and hydrops in the fetus, and hyperbilirubinemia and kernicterus in the newborn. Postnatal care consists of intensive phototherapy and exchange transfusions to treat severe hyperbilirubinemia and top-up transfusions to treat early and late anemia. Other postnatal complications have been reported such as thrombocytopenia, iron overload and cholestasis requiring specific management...

Phototherapy is a renowned treatment for curing skin diseases since ancient times. Phototherapeutic treatment for psoriasis and many other diseases require narrow band ultra violet-B (NB-UVB) light with peak intensity at 313nm to be exposed to the affected part of body. In this paper, we report combustion synthesis of NB-UVB -313nm emitting Ca9Mg(PO4)6F2 phosphors doped with Gd(3+), Pr(3+) and Li(+) ions. The phase formation was confirmed by obtaining X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern and morphology was studied with the Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images...

K T Shahwan, A B Kimball
Although biologic medications have demonstrated great efficacy for the treatment of psoriasis, a subset of patients fails to respond and others lose response later in the course. In treating a patient who has failed to respond to biologic therapy, clinicians must decide between dose escalation, switching biologics, and adding or switching to a non-biologic systemic drug or phototherapy. Although dose escalation is perhaps the simplest strategy and generally well-tolerated, it confers a tremendous cost burden because doubling the dosage is likely to double the wholesale price...

A cluster of metabolic abnormalities are markedly higher among postmenopausal women. The present study evaluated the effects of infrared-light-emitting diode (LED) during treadmill training on multiple metabolic markers, body fat, dietary habits and quality of life in postmenopausal women. Forty five postmenopausal women aged 50 to 60 years were randomly assigned to one of three groups; thirty women successfully completed the full study. The three groups were: (i) the LED group, which performed treadmill training associated with phototherapy (n=10); (ii) the exercise group, which carried out treadmill training only (n=10) and; (iii) the sedentary group, which neither performed physical training nor underwent phototherapy (n=10)...
