Temoporfin is a Secondā€generation Photosensitizer for Cancer

Photodynamic therapy (PDT), a phototherapy, is a minimally invasive therapeutic procedure. PDT consists of three essential components-photosensitizer, light and oxygen. None of these is individually toxic, but together they initiate a photochemical reaction that culminates in the generation of a highly-reactive product termed singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen can rapidly...

ADPM06 is a Novel Nonporphyrin Photodynamic Therapeutic (PDT) Sensitizer and Induces Apoptosis

Photodynamic therapeutic (PDT) is an established treatment modality for cancer. It utilizes a photosensitive compound accompanied by low-energy light of a specific wavelength. The combination of these two independently nontoxic components produces extensive cellular, vascular, and tissue damage in an oxygen-dependent manner, via reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, resulting in...
