Background: Aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) has been widely used in the treatment of condyloma acuminatum (CA), but there is a lack of reports on clinical factors related to CA relapse after photodynamic therapy.Methods: The clinical data of patients with CA treated with ALA-PDT from April 2018 to December 2019 were retrospectively analyzed, including HPV type, follow-up time and recurrence within 6 months after treatment. The patients were classified into single-type HPV infection and multiple-type HPV infection groups. Read More

Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is a common benign lesion in which malignancies like cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) can arise rarely. We report a case of an 81-year-old man who presented a well-demarcated reddish-brown plaque with central raised coarse nodules on the top of his head. Dermoscopy and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) showed the possibility of malignant transformation. Read More

This paper reports on the setting up and calibration of a portable NIR fluorimeter specifically developed for quantitative direct detection of the highly reactive singlet oxygen (O) chemical specie, of great importance in Photodynamic therapies. This quantification relies on the measurement of fluorescence emission of O, which is peaked in the near-infrared (NIR) at λ=1270nm. In recent years, several nanostructures capable of generating reactive oxygen species (ROS) when activated by penetrating radiation (X-rays, NIR light) have been developed to apply Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) to tumours in deep tissue, where visible light cannot penetrate.

Background: We sought to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized and non-randomized clinical trials to assess the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in cervical epithelial neoplasia (CIN) and early-stage cervical cancer. Additionally, according to the results, we tried to consider which stage of CIN is more sensitive/susceptible to PDT.Methods: A systematic search was conducted using electronic databases including PubMed, ClinicalTrials.
