Production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species by light irradiation of a nitrosyl phthalocyanine ruthenium complex as a strategy for cancer treatment.


Production of reactive oxygen species has been used in clinical therapy for cancer treatment in a technique known as Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). The success of this therapy depends on oxygen concentration since hypoxia limits the formation of reactive oxygen species with consequent clinical failure of PDT. Herein, a possible synergistic effect between… (More)
