Nanodelivery systems have shown considerable promise in increasing the solubility and delivery efficiency of hydrophobic photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy (PDT) applications. In this study, we report the preparation and characterization of polymeric micelles that incorporate protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), a potent photosensitizer, using non-covalent(More)
This work reports a new sensitive multi-residue liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for detection, confirmation and quantification of six neonicotinoid pesticides (dinotefuran, thiamethoxam, clothiandin, imidacloprid, acetamiprid and thiacloprid) in agricultural samples (chestnut, shallot, ginger and tea). Activated carbon and(More)
The macrolides are lipophilic molecules having a central lactone ring bearing 12 to 20 atoms to which several amino and/or neutral sugars are bound. They are broad spectrum antibiotics active against Gram-positive bacteria and mycoplasmas, as well as some Gram-negative organisms and members of the chlamydia group. Macrolides are a group of antibacterial(More)
OBJECTIVES To characterize the properties of polymeric micelles containing different loading percentages of mTHPP, a photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy (PDT), with respect to fluorescence, singlet oxygen ((1)O(2)) yield, and in vitro cytotoxicity in head and neck cancer cells. STUDY DESIGN Laboratory study. SETTING Polymer chemistry laboratory. (More)
In this study, a fluorescence method was established to obtain the local concentration of a photosensitizer (PS) based on the realtime fluorescence measurement of skin with port wine stain (PWS) during photodynamic therapy (PDT). This algorithm corrected for the distortions of PS fluorescence spectra imposed by the absorption of melanin and hemoglobin in(More)
A liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method was developed for the determination of imidacloprid in vegetable and tea samples. The sample was first extracted with acetonitrile and then cleaned up with Florisil and active charcoal column. The precursor ion/product ion transitions m/z 256.0/209.3 and m/z 256.0/175.2 were(More)
A fast, simple, low cost, and high throughput method has been developed for the determination of Gibberellin A3 residue in fruit samples (apple, orange, peach, pear and grape). Analysis is performed by LC-MS/MS operated in the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode, acquiring two specific precursor-product ion transitions per target compound. The method(More)
OBJECTIVE To encapsulate 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(meso-hydroxyphenyl)porphyrin (mTHPP), a photosensitizer, into polymeric micelles; characterize the micelles; and test in vitro photodynamic therapy efficacy against human head and neck cancer cells. STUDY DESIGN A nanoparticle design, fabrication, and in vitro testing study. SETTING Polymer chemistry(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an emerging clinical modality for the treatment of a variety of diseases. Most photosensitizers are hydrophobic and poorly soluble in water. Many new nanoplatforms have been successfully established to improve the delivery efficiency of PS drugs. However, few reported studies have investigated how the carrier microenvironment(More)
