Monocytes Loaded with Indocyanine Green as Active Homing Contrast Agents Permit Optical Differentiation of Infectious and Non-Infectious Inflammation

Abstract

Distinguishing cutaneous infection from sterile inflammation is a diagnostic challenge and currently relies upon subjective interpretation of clinical parameters, microbiological data, and nonspecific imaging. Assessing characteristic variations in leukocytic infiltration may provide more specific information. In this study, we demonstrate that homing of… (More)
