Photodynamic therapy, currently used as an alternative technique for the treatment of superficial non-melanoma skin cancers, has been employed in vitro to kill different species of microorganisms. Here the development of Candida albicans colonies has been measured after application of 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) plus visible light (VIS) irradiation. C.(More)
UNLABELLED Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) is an alternative tool for the treatment of superficial non-melanoma skin cancers. Recently ALA-PDT has been employed with encouraging results also for warts, condylomata and psoriasis. In this study the effects of topical ALA plus irradiation with visible light on intact human skin(More)
Ultraviolet B and psoralen plus UVA treatment induce antigenic and enzymatic changes in Langerhans cells (LC). The aim of this study was to investigate the visible (VIS) effect on mice LC surface markers. As visible source, a slide projector equipped with a 150-W tungsten lamp, emitting between 400 and 740 nm (maximum at 580 nm) was used. Mice (BALB/c and(More)
