The mechanisms of photodynamic therapy induced anti-tumor immunity
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has long been shown to be capable of killing malignant cells, causing shut down of tumor microvasculature, and induction of host immune response. The therapeutic efficacy of PDT is dependent on ...
Assessing PDT response with diffuse optical spectroscopies
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used to treat a variety of conditions including cancer. Effective PDT requires three components: a photosensitizer (PS), light of a specific wavelength to activate the PS and oxygen. When all ...
The effect of photodynamic therapy (PDT) on epidermal growth factor receptor and interleukin-6 cytokine signaling, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors enhance the efficacy of PDT by increasing intracellular accumulation of photosensitizers
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment for cancer which combines the administration of a drug, known as a photosensitizer, with light. When the photosensitizer is irradiated with the light, it produces singlet oxygen ...
