BACKGROUND The combination of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS), second harmonic generation (SHG) and two-photon excited fluorescence (TPEF) imaging--referred to as multimodal imaging--provides complementary contrast based on molecular vibrations, the structure of various tissue components and endogenous fluorophores, respectively. OBJECTIVES(More)
Potential antimicrobial effects of sequential applications of tissue-tolerable plasma (TTP) and the conventional liquid antiseptic octenidine dihydrochloride (ODC) were investigated. 34 patients with chronic leg ulcers were treated with TTP, ODC or a combination of both. The bacterial colonization was measured semi-quantitatively before and immediately(More)
OBJECTIVE In the age of multiresistant microbes and the increasing lack of efficient antibiotics, conventional antiseptics play a critical role in the prevention and therapy of wound infections. Recent studies have demonstrated the antiseptic effects of cold atmospheric pressure plasma (APP). In this pilot, study we investigate the overall suitability of(More)
Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) belongs to the most frequent human neoplasms. Its exposed location facilitates a fast ambulant treatment. However, in the clinical practice far more lesions are removed than necessary, due to the lack of an efficient pre-operational examination procedure: Standard imaging methods often do not provide a sufficient spatial(More)
BACKGROUND Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) is a highly efficient chemotherapeutic; however, it induces dermal side effects such as palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE) in up to 80% of cases, probably by being emitted with the sweat onto the skin surface. AIM The aim of the present study was to examine whether a topically applied ointment(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The palmoplantar erythrodysaesthesia (PPE) is an inflammatory cutaneous side effect in patients under chemotherapy with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD), with indications that also other chemotherapeutics induce similar side effects. Recently, it has been demonstrated that PLD escapes with the sweat onto the skin inducing(More)
Sunscreens are a key pillar of the multimodal protection strategy against short- and long-term impacts of intermittent and continuous UV exposure. Hitherto, an unanswered part of current scientific discourse is the question whether a cosmetic pretreatment has an impact on distribution and adhesiveness of sunscreens on the skin and therefore affects UV(More)
