Name: Photodiagnosis and photodynamic therapy
Sequential daylight photodynamic therapy and ingenol mebutate versus 2 sessions of daylight photodynamic therapy for the treatment of actinic keratosis: An observational, prospective, comparative study.
Field-directed therapy, such as daylight-photodynamic therapy (DL-PDT) or ingenol mebutate (IM), is indicated for multiple actinic keratosis (AK) lesions located on contiguous areas of skin with signi...
The efficacy and safety of methyl aminolevulinate daylight photodynamic therapy (MAL DL-PDT) for actinic keratosis (AK) treatment has previously been demonstrated in several studies.
Photodynamic therapy is an effective treatment for actinic keratosis. 5-aminolevulinic acid nanoemulsion (BF-200 ALA) and methyl-5-aminolevulinate (MAL) are both prodrugs for the treatment of actinic ...
Efficacy of daylight-photodynamic therapy (DL-PDT) with methyl aminolaevulinate (MAL) has been reported to gradually decrease as the severity of actinic keratosis (AK) lesions increases. Repeated trea...
Several previous studies have failed to show superiority of 5 aminolevulinic acid nanoemulsion (BF-200 ALA) over methyl-5-aminolevulinate (MAL) in daylight photodynamic therapy for actinic keratosis (...
Twenty patients with multiple actinic keratosis on the face will be enrolled in the study and will be treated with Daylight Photodynamic therapy. Before and after skin biopsies will be pe...
Guidelines for photodynamic therapy (PDT) of actinic keratosis recommend pretreatment with curettage. The impact of curettage on the treatment effect is, however, not known. The present st...
This is a randomized, single-blind controlled trial with parallel group design to determine whether daylight photodynamic therapy (PDT) affords a reduction in treatment symptoms of pain, b...
Prospective non-interventional study conducted in Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Europe to evaluate clinical practice with Metvix Daylight PDT in the treatment of mild to moderate actinic k...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BF-200 ALA (Ameluz) used with photodynamic therapy (PDT) in patients suffering from actinic keratosis.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
A compound produced from succinyl-CoA and GLYCINE as an intermediate in heme synthesis. It is used as a PHOTOCHEMOTHERAPY for actinic KERATOSIS.
White or pink lesions on the arms, hands, face, or scalp that arise from sun-induced DNA DAMAGE to KERATINOCYTES in exposed areas. They are considered precursor lesions to superficial SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA.
A complex mixture of monomeric and aggregated porphyrins used in the photodynamic therapy of tumors (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION). A purified component of this mixture is known as DIHEMATOPORPHYRIN ETHER.
Assistance in managing and monitoring drug therapy for patients receiving treatment for cancer or chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, consulting with patients and their families on the proper use of medication; conducting wellness and disease prevention programs to improve public health; overseeing medication use in a variety of settings.
