Optimal conditions for successful ablation of high-grade dysplasia in Barrett’s oesophagus using aminolaevulinic acid photodynamic therapy

Abstract

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) using 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA-PDT) is an attractive alternative to PDT with porfimer sodium for the treatment of high-grade dysplasia (HGD) in Barrett’s oesophagus (BO) because of the shorter duration of light photosensitivity and low risk of oesophageal stricture formation. Published results, however, show marked variation in… (More)
