Bundles of intact fibres from soleus muscles of adult mice were isolated by dissection and one fibre within a bundle was micro-injected with either furaptra or mag-fluo-4, two low-affinity rapidly responding Ca(2+) indicators. Fibres were activated by action potentials to elicit changes in indicator fluorescence (ΔF), a monitor of the myoplasmic free Ca(2+)(More)
Accurate photodynamic therapy (PDT) dosimetry is critical for the use of PDT in the treatment of malignant and nonmalignant localized diseases. A singlet oxygen explicit dosimetry (SOED) model has been developed for in vivo purposes. It involves the measurement of the key components in PDT-light fluence (rate), photosensitizer concentration, and(More)
Pleural photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been used as an adjuvant treatment with lung-sparing surgical treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). In the current pleural PDT protocol, a moving fiber-based point source is used to deliver the light. The light fluences at multiple locations are monitored by several isotropic detectors placed in the(More)
