Abstract
Singlet oxygen (1O2) is commonly recognized to be a major phototoxic component for inducing the biological damage during photodynamic therapy (PDT). In this study, a novel configuration of a thermoelectrically-cooled near-infrared sensitive InGaAs camera was developed for imaging of photodynamically-generated 1O2 luminescence. The validation of 1O2 luminescence images for solution samples was performed with the model photosensitizer Rose Bengal (RB). Images of 1O2 luminescence generated in blood vessels in vivo in a well-controlled dorsal skinfold window chamber model were also recorded during PDT. This study demonstrated the capacity of the newly-developed imaging system for imaging of 1O2 luminescence, and the first reported images of 1O2 luminescence in blood vessels in vivo. This system has potential for elucidating the mechanisms of vascular targeted PDT.
