Modulation of the Immune Response by IL-17 Following Photodynamic Therapy
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved local cancer treatment that can be curative of early stage and palliative of advanced-stage disease. A hallmark of PDT is the induction of sterile ...
Optimizing photodynamic therapy by improving the design of the photosensitizer
During the last several decades, scientists have investigated changes in the photosensitizers chemical structure on photosensitizing potencies. Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies have been reported ...
Split-dose photodynamic therapy: Optimizing cures while preventing disseminated tumors
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an FDA approved treatment for a number of malignant and non-malignant conditions in humans. Previous pre-clinical work in murine tumor models has shown that low-inflammation ( high-fluence ) ...
Biodegradable Polyacrylamide-Based Theranostic Platforms for Tumor-Imaging and Photodynamic Therapy
The goal of my thesis work was to create theranostic nanoparticles for tumor imaging and therapy based on biodegradable polyacrylamide (PAA) nanoparticles. In order to achieve this goal; my thesis is divided into six parts. ...
