Drug-induced photosensitivity of the skin is drawing increasing attention. In past few decades, photosensitivity has been reported with array of drugs, and is now recognized as a noteworthy clinical problem by clinicians, regulatory authorities and the pharmaceutical industry. The photosensitivity is of two types i.e., phototoxicity and photoallergy. Phototoxic disorders have a high incidence, whereas photoallergic reactions are much less frequent in human population. In phototoxic reactions… Expand
Applications of photosensitizer in therapy.
Abstract Photosensitization can be defined as a process in which a reaction to normally harmless radiation is induced by the introduction of a specific radiation-absorbing substance (photosensitizer)Expand
Photoactivation of a compound results in the excitation applications of Photosensitizer in therapy
Photosensitization can be defined as a process in which a reaction to normally harmless radiation is induced by the introduction of a specific radiation-absorbing substance (photosensitizer) thatExpand
Photosensitivity: a current biological overview
TLDR
An overview on exogenous photosensitivity and assays used to evaluate the photosensitivity potential of drugs/chemicals is provided and an efficacious photosensitivity testing system is developed to avoid side effects. Expand
Use of antipsychotic drugs in dermatology.
TLDR
The antipsychotic drugs are most commonly used in dermatology for the management of a delusional disorder, somatic type, manifesting as delusional infestation, and as monotherapy or as augmentation therapy of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, and for management of trichotillomania and skin-picking or excoriation disorder.

NEW MOLECULAR MECHANISM OF CEFTAZIDIME-INDUCED HUMAN RED BLOOD CELL HEMOLYSIS THROUGH THE PHOTOHEMOLYSIS REACTION
Objective: The present study was undertaken to investigate the photohemolysis reaction through photosensitization reaction by ceftazidime as a photosensitizer in human red blood cell (RBC). Methods:Expand
Xenobiotics in the environment: an investigation on the transformation kinetics, the environmental metabolites and their formation mechanisms.
Xenobiotics are continually introduced into the environment and it is very important to draw up an “environmental risk assessment” for these pollutants. Xenobiotics can be persistent and accumulateExpand
Determination of photostability and photodegradation products of indomethacin in aqueous media.
TLDR
Photochemical behaviour of indomethacin in aqueous media at 254nm, 310nm and sunlight was studied by HPLC and the main photochemical routes are suggested to proceed via decarboxylation, followed by oxygenation to give an alcohol and an aldehyde and/or by solvent trapping to produce the alcohol.

Photosensitivity Associated with Antipsychotics, Antidepressants and Anxiolytics
TLDR
In order to properly diagnose photosensitivity to systemic drugs it is important to prove photosensitivity by phototesting and to rule out other causes of systemic photosensitivity such as systemic lupus erythematosus and porphyria cutanea tarda. Expand

TLDR
The term photosensitization designates an abnormal or adverse reaction to ultraviolet and/or visible radiation that does not imply any particular mechanism and in this context is not synonymous with an allergic response. Expand
