2014-07-23 21:12:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT)in treatment of Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and recurrence rate after 6 months.

Description

Background and Aim:

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer .Photodynamic therapy _as a novel , non-invasive therapeutic approach _may be considered a valuable strategy. This study was designed with the aim of the evaluation of efficacy of PDT in treatment of BCC and recurrence rate after 6 months .

Materials and Methods:

This was a clinical trial which was done on 28 BCCs. Patients were treated with ALA-PDT monthly for 1-6 sessions and evaluated for clinical response,cosmetic results,recurrence rate and probable side effects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)

A patched receptor that may function redundantly with the PATCHED-1 RECEPTOR to modulate hedgehog signaling. It may also play a role in epidermal development and as a TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN. Mutations in the patched-2 gene are associated with BASAL CELL NEVUS SYNDROME; CARCINOMA, BASAL CELL; and MEDULLOBLASTOMA.

A skin carcinoma that histologically exhibits both basal and squamous elements. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
