Summary of "Reasonably retard O consumption through a photoactivity conversion nanocomposite for oxygenated photodynamic therapy."

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) brings excellent treatment outcome while also causing poor tumor microenvironment and prognosis due to the uncontrolled oxygen consumption. To solve this issue, a novel PDT strategy, oxygenated PDT (maintain the tumor oxygenation before and after PDT) was carried out by a tumor and apoptosis responsive photoactivity conversion nanocomposite (MPPa-DP). Under physiological conditions, this nanocomposite has a low photoactivity. While at HO-rich tumor microenvironment, the nanocomposite could react with overexpressed HO to produce O and release high photoactivity chimeric peptide PPa-DP for oxygenated tumor and PDT. Importantly, when the PDT mediates cell apoptosis, the photoactivity of PPa-DP be effectively quenched and the O consumption appeared retard, which avoided further consumption of residual O on apoptotic cells. In vitro and vivo studies revealed that this nanocomposite could efficiently change photoactivity, reasonable control O consumption and increase residual O content of tumor after PDT.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A highly anionic organic phosphate which is present in human red blood cells at about the same molar ratio as hemoglobin. It binds to deoxyhemoglobin but not the oxygenated form, therefore diminishing the oxygen affinity of hemoglobin. This is essential in enabling hemoglobin to unload oxygen in tissue capillaries. It is also an intermediate in the conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate to 2-phosphoglycerate by phosphoglycerate mutase (EC (From Stryer Biochemistry, 4th ed, p160; Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992, p508)

Naturally occurring or synthetic substances that inhibit or retard the oxidation of a substance to which it is added. They counteract the harmful and damaging effects of oxidation in animal tissues.

The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)
