Modeling PpIX effective light fluence at depths into the skin for PDT dose comparison.

Daylight-activated PDT has seen increased support in recent years as a treatment method for actinic keratosis and other non-melanoma skin cancers. The inherent variability observed in broad-spectrum l...

The associations of daylight and melatonin receptor 1B gene rs10830963 variant with glycemic traits: the prospective PPP-Botnia study.

Seasonal variation in glucose metabolism might be driven by changes in daylight. Melatonin entrains circadian regulation and is directly associated with daylight. The relationship between melatonin re...

Daylight saving time transitions are not associated with increased seizure incidence.

Given the known association of daylight saving time (DST) transitions with increased risk of accidents, heart attack, and stroke, we aimed to determine whether seizures, which are reportedly influence...

Diet, Physical Activity, and Daylight Exposure Patterns in Night-Shift Workers and Day Workers.

Night-shift work has been reported to have an impact on nutrition, daylight exposure, and physical activity, which might play a role in observed health effects. Because these exposures show diurnal va...

Comparative Study of the Effects of FECH-siRNA Transfection Mediated by Ultrasound Microbubbles and PEI in Combination with Low-dose ALA to Enhance PpIX Accumulation in Human Endometrial Cancer Xenograft Nude Mice Models.

Comparison of the fluorescence intensity caused by the accumulation of PpIX in endometrial cancer xenografts in nude mice after low-dose ALA injection combined with siRNA transfection was mediated by ...

Study of the Efficacy of Daylight Activated Photodynamic Therapy in the Treatment of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis

The aim of the project is to determine whether daylight activated photodynamic therapy is effective in treating cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L. major and L. tropical. PDT is classic...

Pilot Study to Examine Health Effects of Daylight Exposure on Dementia Patients

This study is designed to test the hypothesis that an intervention increasing exposure to daylight indoors will reduce depression and other neuropsychiatric symptoms among people living wi...

Potential Impact of Patient Vitamin D Status in AK Response to MAL-PDT

In topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) for non-melanoma skin cancers, a photosensitizing prodrug, 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) or its methylated ester, methyl aminolevulinate (MAL), is conv...

Efficacy of Methyl Aminolevulinate + Daylight in Patients With Facial Photodamage

Treatment of actinic damage has included multiple procedures but to date there is limited scientific evidence to support the preferential use of one of these therapies according to their e...

Metvix Daylight PDT in Actinic Keratosis

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The time period of daily exposure that an organism receives from daylight or artificial light. It is believed that photoperiodic responses may affect the control of energy balance and thermoregulation.

Continuous frequency distribution of infinite range. Its properties are as follows: 1, continuous, symmetrical distribution with both tails extending to infinity; 2, arithmetic mean, mode, and median identical; and 3, shape completely determined by the mean and standard deviation.

A macrolide compound obtained from Streptomyces hygroscopicus that acts by selectively blocking the transcriptional activation of cytokines thereby inhibiting cytokine production. It is bioactive only when bound to IMMUNOPHILINS. Sirolimus is a potent immunosuppressant and possesses both antifungal and antineoplastic properties.

The sequential activation of serum COMPLEMENT PROTEINS to create the COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX. Factors initiating complement activation include ANTIGEN-ANTIBODY COMPLEXES, microbial ANTIGENS, or cell surface POLYSACCHARIDES.

Conversion of an inactive form of an enzyme to one possessing metabolic activity. It includes 1, activation by ions (activators); 2, activation by cofactors (coenzymes); and 3, conversion of an enzyme precursor (proenzyme or zymogen) to an active enzyme.
