Conventional antimicrobial strategies have become increasingly ineffective due to the rapid emergence of antibiotic resistance among pathogenic bacteria. In order to overcome this problem, antimicrobial PhotoDynamic Therapy (PDT) is considered a promising alternative therapy. PDT has a broad spectrum of action and low mutagenic potential.
