Abstract
The continued examination of injury sites and mechanisms of cytotoxicity associated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) can take advantage of current molecular and/or biochemical techniques. The increased expression of oxidative stress proteins can be studied as a function of photosensitizer type, treatment conditions and cell type. However, while in-vitro studies can address questions regarding subcellular PDT targets there is growing evidence that in-vivo effects of PDT are mediated by both vascular and direct tumor cell injury. Preclinical PDT studies using mono-l-aspartyl chlorin e6 (NPe6) confirm that the efficacy of this photosensitizer is correlated with plasma levels of this compound and not tumor cell levels.
