Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – October 2021

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – October 2021 This time we wanted to highlight Professor Tebello Nyokong’s team at Rhodes University, since their latest research tackles two big unmet needs in cancer therapy: tumor hypoxia and side effects of the drugs. The team designed multifunctional liposomes that can locally generate oxygen within tumors to alleviate hypoxia, which is a significant contributor to resistance to radio- and chemotherapies. These nanodrugs also hold the potential to reduce problematic side effects of standard cancer therapies as a result of Continue reading →

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – September 2021

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – September 2021 Laser-Sharp Research nomination goes to this month for Professor Kobayashi’s team and Dr. Noriko Sato’s team at National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Health, USA. Their research published in a prestigious Cancer Research journal showed that photoimmunotherapy can not only target tumor cells, but can also be harnessed to target body’s own tumor-promoting immune cells within the tumor. These special cells called intratumoral Tregs were selectively killed by photoimmunotherapy upon illumination with ML7710 laser, which led to activation Continue reading →

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – August 2021

Modulight Spotlights: LASER-SHARP RESEARCH – August 2021 Modulight would like to congratulate Dr. Sabrina Oliveira and members of the Molecular Targeted Therapies research group at Utrecht University on their recent work published in Nanophotonics journal. They have developed nanobody-targeted phototherapy for feline oral carcinoma with high potency and specificity towards oral cancer cells. This is an important step towards treating cats with oral cancers for which there are currently no effective therapeutic options available in the veterinary clinics. This type of research overall is critical Continue reading →

Light delivery optimization for H&N cancer treatment

Customer case Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center was founded in 1898 as the first institute in the US devoted exclusively to cancer treatment and research. It is also the place where photodynamic therapy (PDT) was developed in the late 1970s by Thomas Dougherty. The PDT center at Roswell Park is a leader in the use of photodynamic therapy for treating different cancers. Research work includes treatment planning and light dosimetry for interstitial and intraoperative PDT to improve the quality of life and survival of cancer patients Continue reading →

Antimicrobial PDT for prosthetic joint infections

Customer case Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at UCL, Stanmore in London, UK is an internationally leading Centre of Excellence and tertiary referral centre for complex orthopedic conditions. Close collaboration between clinicians and engineers facilitates high-quality research into orthopedic implant fixation and bone regeneration. Focus is on translational themes that include biomaterials, stem cells, the design and follow-up of implants, bone graft substitute materials and implant infections. PDT has been studied as an alternative to antibiotics to more effectively tackle infections following hip & knee replacement Continue reading →
