Laser photochemotherapy of rhodamine-123 sensitized human glioma cells in vitro.

Abstract

The photochemotherapeutic effect of the mitochondria-specific dye rhodamine-123 (Rh-123) on human glioma cells in culture was studied. Cultured U-251MG glioma cells were incubated for 30 minutes in 10 micrograms/ml of Rh-123 and then exposed to blue-green light between 488 and 514.5 nm using a continuous-wave argon laser. Cells that were treated with Rh-123… (More)
