Experimental studies of the effects of ZnPcS2P2-based-photodynamic therapy on bone marrow purging.


BACKGROUND An effective purging technique plays an important role in autologous hematopoietic stem cells transplantation. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) provides a novel approach for this purpose. This study dealt with the purging effects of di-sulfo-di-phthalimidomethyl phthalolcyanine zinc (ZnPcS2P2)-based photodynamic therapy (ZnPc-PDT). METHODS… (More)
