Abstract

The ability of a magnetically responsive material to function as a carrier for photosensitizing agents for use in photoradiation therapy (PRT) has been examined in vitro. The photosensitizer has been attached to the magnetically responsive matrix (Dynabeads) by non-specific adsorption, Intralipid-mediated adsorption and poly-L-lysine mediated adsorption. In these studies, it has been demonstrated that conditions of attachment of photosensitizer to the matrix may be adapted in order to facilitate a diffuse or highly localized photo-toxic effect on target cells in vitro. The authors believe that this system may represent a novel approach to targeting photosensitizing agents to specific areas, thereby circumventing some of the problems associated with conventional photoradiation therapy (PRT), particularly in hollow organs.
