Design of Pluronic-Based Formulation for Enhanced Redaporfin-Photodynamic Therapy against Pigmented Melanoma.
The therapeutic outcome of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with redaporfin (a fluorinated sulfonamide bacteriochlorin, F2BMet or LUZ11) was improved using Pluronic-based (P123, F127) formulations. NeitherExpand

Mechanisms of singlet-oxygen and superoxide-ion generation by porphyrins and bacteriochlorins and their implications in photodynamic therapy.
New halogenated and sulfonated bacteriochlorins and their analogous porphyrins are employed as photosensitizers of singlet oxygen and the superoxide ion. The mechanisms of energy and electronExpand
