  • We report the results of our investigations on the effect of antimicrobial photodynamic treatment (APDT) with poly-lysine-conjugated chlorin p6 (pl–cp6) on proinflammatory cytokine expression and wound healing in a murine excisional wound model infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Treatment of infected wounds with pl–cp6 and light doses of 60 and 120 J/cm2 reduced the bacterial load by ~1.5 and 2.0 log, respectively, after 24 h. The treated wounds healed ~5 days earlier as compared to… CONTINUE READING
