Low dose hypericin-PDT induces complete tumor regression in BALB/c mice bearing CT26 colon carcinoma.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Successful tumor eradication with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in vivo depends on the optimal combination of treatment parameters. (Low-dose) PDT may additionally induce antitumoral immune responses. Since the naturally occurring hypericin (Hyp) is a promising photosensitizer for PDT, the aim of the study was to investigate phototoxic and… (More)
