Differential sensitivities of pathogens in red cell concentrates to Tri-P(4)-photoinactivation.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Photodynamic treatment (PDT) with the cationic porphyrin, mono-phenyl-tri-(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)-porphyrin chloride [Tri-P(4)], has previously been shown to be effective at inactivating vesicle stomatitis virus (VSV) in red cell concentrates (RCC) with limited damage to red blood cells (RBC). The aim of this study was to determine… (More)
