Potentiation of photodynamic therapy of cancer by complement: the effect of gamma-inulin

Korbelik, M; Cooper, Peter

Description

Host response elicited by photodynamic therapy (PDT) of cancerous lesions is a critical contributor to the clinical outcome, and complement system has emerged as its important element. Amplification of complement action was shown to improve tumour PDT response. In search of a clinically relevant complement activator for use as a PDT adjuvant, this study focused on γ-inulin and examined its effects on PDT response of mouse tumours. Intralesional γ-inulin (0.1 mg mouse-1) delivered immediately...[Show more]
