To study the photosensitizing properties of bacteriochlorin a (BCA) in a (lipo)protein-rich environment, the photosensitizing efficacy was tested by clonogenic survival of Chinese hamster ovary and T24 (human bladder carcinoma) cells. Confluent cell layers were incubated with 2.5 micrograms ml-1 BCA in cell culture medium for 1, 4, 6, 18 and 24 h. Upon… CONTINUE READING
