Abstract
The photoinduced damage sensitized by chlorin e6 to obligate-pathogenic bacteria Klebsiella rhinoscleromatis in the presence of streptomycin has been studied. A significant synergic effect is observed resulting in both higher photoinactivation rates in the presence of streptomycin and reduction of the threshold of toxic antibiotic concentrations for bacteria, exposed to the sublethal photosensitized action. One may expect that the use of the combined action of a photosensitizer and visible light will allow one to decrease an effective antibiotic dose using combined photo- and chemotherapy of scleroma.
