Photodynamic therapy with a cationic functionalized fullerene rescues mice from fatal wound infections.

Abstract

AIMS Fullerenes are under intensive study for potential biomedical applications. We have previously reported that a C60 fullerene functionalized with three dimethylpyrrolidinium groups (BF6) is a highly active broad-spectrum antimicrobial photosensitizer in vitro when combined with white-light illumination. We asked whether this high degree of in vitro… (More)
