Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been used for many years, but it is only now becoming widely accepted and utilized. Originally it was developed as a tumor therapy and some of its most successful applications are for non-malignant diseases. This article provides a broad review of different parameters used and mechanisms instituted in PDT such as photosensitizers (PS), photochemistry and photophysics, cellular localization, cellular signaling, cell metabolism and modes of cell death that operate… CONTINUE READING
