Two glycodendrimeric phenylporphyrins were synthesized and their interaction with phospholipids was studied at the air-water interface and in liposome bilayers; such liposomes bearing glycodendrimeric porphyrin could constitute an efficient carrier for drug targeting in photodynamic therapy.
This paper describes the conception, synthesis, and characterization of new tetrapyrrolic chromophores bearing glycodendrimeric moieties inducing a potential increase of tumor targeting by a cluster effect. Two families of monoglycodendrimeric photosensitizers bearing three glycosyl units were designed, prepared with an acceptable overall efficiency and(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is considered one efficient treatment against retinoblastoma. The specificity of a photosensitizer and its penetration into cancerous cells are crucial for achieving tumor necrosis. The selection of photosensitizers such as porphyrin derivatives by tumor cells thus depends to a large extent on their ability to interact with the(More)
In this paper, we discuss the evolution over the last 15 years in the Curie Institute of the concept, the development of the design and some properties of glycoconjugated photosensitizers with the aim to optimize the tumor targeting in photodynamic therapy. By this research, we have shown that specific interactions between a mannose-lectin and(More)
