The purpose of this systematic review was to stratify the literature on the therapeutic approaches for macular telangiectasia (Mactel type 1 and 2) to provide evidenced-based practical guidelines for the optimal standard care of these conditions. A comprehensive search of PubMed was performed using a specific search algorithm. All articles retrieve...
Critical reviews in microbiology
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of human fungal infections. The increase in cases of infection caused by Candida species, and the consequent excessive use of antimicrobials, has favored the emergence of resistance to conventional antifungal agents over the past decades. Consequently, Candida infections morbid...
These results suggest that the measurement of porphyrin metabolites in urine may potentially serve as a new screening and recurrence marker for CRC.
Treatments of high specificity are desirable for cancer therapy. Light-triggered nanotheranostics (LTN) mediated cancer therapy could be one such treatment, as they make it possible to visualize and treat the tumor specifically in a light-controlled manner with a single injection. Because of their great potential in cancer therapy, many novel and p...
La technologie laser est une technique qui a fait ses preuves désormais dans différentes spécialités médicales telles que l’ophtalmologie et la gynécologie. Les lasers ont été introduits en dentisterie il y a environ 15 ans avec plusieurs longueurs d’onde comme le laser Diode 980nm, le Nd-Yag 1064nm, le Nd-Yap 1340nm, l’Er-Yag 2940nm ou le CO2 1060...
arthroconidia were observed after 35 days for T. mentagrophytes and T. tonsurans. Using 81 J/cm2 (532 nm) 7-day T. mentagrophytes onychomycoses were cured (92%) with 80 µM PORTHE (pH 8) after 24 h propylene glycol (PG, 40%) pre-treatment and 35-day onychomycoses (52%–67%) with 24 h PORTHE (40–80 µM)/40% PG treatment (pH 5). 28 J/cm2 LED light (525 ...

PDT is a minimally invasive technique which in early clinical trials has matched the effectiveness of conventional therapies for treating early head and neck squamous cell cancers. It uses a photosensitizing agent that is retained by tumor cells, allowing for the selective destruction of neoplastic cells. Permanent sequelae following treatment have...
HER2-targeted therapy has been shown to have limited efficacy in ovarian cancer despite frequent overexpression of this receptor. Photochemical internalization (PCI) is a modality for cytosolic drug delivery, currently undergoing clinical evaluation. In the present project we studied the application of PCI in combination with the HER2-targeted reco...
Journal of endodontics
Photodynamically activated CSRBnps caused significant inactivation of endotoxins and the subsequent reduction of all tested inflammatory markers from activated macrophages. Antimicrobial CSRBnps in combination with photodynamic therapy showed the potential to effectively inactivate bacterial endotoxins.
The high degree of selectivity for photodamage to subcellular organelles can provide a means for evaluation of autophagic death pathways. While many current reports rely on ambiguous criteria, there are glimmers of unequivocal evidence.
