Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

PDT is a zero to low invasive technology developed by Thomas Doughtary at Roswell Park. It is an extremely effective treatment for cancers, other diseased tissue and imaging. How PDT works is a molecule such as HPPH derived from a form of Algae with applied to the area being treated via a topical, transdermal, subcutaneous or targeted TV route.

 

Applications

 

How PDT works is these compounds rect to specific frequencies of EM radiation ranging from IR to low level Microwaves. Upon excitation the compounds undergo a reaction and release a singlet Oxygen which in turn is toxic to the cell which has absorbed it.

 

Strangely, Normal Cells and Defective (Cancerous or Diseased Cells) retain these compounds on different timelines. So treating a patient we wait for the healthy cells to release the PDT compound then expose Defective Cells to the specific photo activation radiation. Normal tissue is unaffected while the defective tissue is killed with no or minimal invasion to the individual.
