In vitro phototoxicity of nifedipine: sequential induction of toxic and non-toxic photoproducts with UVA radiation.


Anecdotal reports suggest that the dihydropyridine calcium antagonist, nifedipine (NIF), may be phototoxic in human skin. We have studied NIF phototoxicity in vitro using UVA fluorescent tubes (Sylvania PUVA). NIF was phototoxic to Candida albicans and induced photohaemolysis both with NIF present during irradiation and with pre-irradiated drug. In V79… (More)
