Enhancing the efficiency of 5-aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy using 5-fluorouracil on human melanoma cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND 5-Aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) is an effective and noninvasive modality for treatment of several types of non-melanoma skin cancers. This in-vitro study attempted to know whether the killing effect of ALA-PDT on the human melanoma cells (Mel-Rm cell line) could be increased by the presence of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU… (More)
