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 ...
Comparative evaluation of two different diode laser wavelengths with and without photosensitization for suppressing bacterial colonization on dental implants surfaces. Ex-vivo study
Background: Peri-implant disease is now an important topic in the dental implant literature. Therapeutic use of the the diode laser has shown promising results in management of peri-imlantitis. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) ...
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 ...
