Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (APDT) combines a non-toxic dye, termed photosensitizer, which is activated by visible light of appropriate wavelength which will produce reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS will react with cellular components inducing oxidative processes, leading to cell death. A wide range of microorganisms, have already showed susceptibility to APDT. Therefore, this treatment might consist in an alternative for the management of fungal infections that is mainly caused… CONTINUE READING
