Cellular uptake and photosensitizing properties of quantum dot-chlorin e6 complex: in vitro study.


Recently it has been suggested that quantum dots could be used in the photodynamic therapy of cancer as resonant energy donors for conventional porphyrin type photosensitizers. Here we summarize our results obtained by studying a non-covalent complex formed between quantum dots and a second generation photosensitizer, chlorin e6, in aqueous medium and in… (More)
