Photodynamic therapy with Verteporfin, a potent photosensitizer dye, is a very effective treatment for age related macular degeneration due to choroidal neovascularization. Photodynamic therapy offers the potential for selective tissue injury in part attributable to preferential localization of Verteporfin, administrated by intravenous infusion, to the… CONTINUE READING
