Abstract
It has been known since the 1960's that certain cellular dyes could inactivate live cells when illuminated but the research involving these compounds has focussed largely on the use of photodynamic therapy for mammalian carcinoma cells. Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (APDT) research has increased in the last 20 years due to concerns with emerging antibiotic resistant bacteria, but is still in its early stages of development (Zeina et al., 2001).
