Trisulfonated porphyrazines: new photosensitizers for the treatment of retinal and subretinal edema.


A new series of water-soluble, mononaphthotrisulfobenzoporphyrazines, bearing an alkynyl side chain of varying lengths on the naphtho ring, were prepared and tested for their efficacy to inhibit plasma extravasation when used as photosensitizers during photodynamic therapy (PDT) of the retina in the rat. The hexynyl substituted photosensitizer was the most… (More)
