In vitro effects of photodynamic therapy on Aspergillus fumigatus.

Abstract

Photodynamic therapy is a technique for killing cells with visible light after pretreatment with a photosensitizing agent. We demonstrated significant in vitro fungicidal activity against Aspergillus fumigatus of the photosensitizer Green 2W, activated with 630 nm light. This effect was both inoculum- and light dose-dependent. At a Green 2W concentration of… (More)
