Photo induced hexylaminolevulinate destruction of rat bladder cells AY-27.

Abstract

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is of increasing interest as a relevant treatment for human urinary bladder cancer. In the present experiments, the rat bladder transitional carcinoma cell line AY-27 was used as a model to study cell destruction mechanisms induced by PDT. Red LED light (630 nm) PDT with hexylaminolevulinate (HAL) as precursor for the… (More)
