Photodynamic inactivation of primary human fibroblasts by methylene blue and toluidine blue O.

Abstract

BACKGROUND An important determinant of the clinical applicability and value of antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation (PDI) is the cytotoxicity of the treatment to human cells. We evaluated the in vitro cytotoxicity of PDI to primary human fibroblasts using methylene blue (MB) and toluidine blue O (TBO) as the photosensitizers. METHODS The primary human… (More)
