Light delivery optimization for H&N cancer treatment

Results Illumination with one fiber Some level of tissue heating was observed at all used light intensities. At lower intensities (60-100 mW/cm), less than 5% of the tumor was subjected to >60 ⁰C temperature, a point where irreversible thermal damage will immediately occur (photothermal ablation). At intensities of 150-200 mW/cm, 15-20% of the tumor was at >60 ⁰C temperature. At 400 mW/cm, which is FDA-recommended light irradiance for iPDT, a… READ MORE

Combining photoimmunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibition

Motivation for the study The motivation was to study if photoimmunotherapy could enhance anti-tumor immunity when combined with immune checkpoint inhibition. CD44-targeted photoimmunotherapy was applied against poorly immunogenic, “cold” tumor and antitumor effect was studied alone and in combination with anti-PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibition. Sensitization of this “cold” tumor to immune checkpoint inhibition after photoimmunotherapy would mean that the tumor has been converted into highly immunogenic, “hot” tumor infiltrated with… READ MORE

ML7710 for photoimmunotherapy against regulatory T cells in tumors

    Results Tumor growth was significantly suppressed by photoimmunotherapy, compared to control or IgG without light activation. Tumor growth suppression, as well as overall survival after photoimmunotherapy, were significantly better with F(ab´)2 fragments than with full IgG. This efficacy improvement might be related to killer T cells, which were detected in much higher numbers after photoimmunotherapy with F(ab´)2 fragments and are key cells for the generation of efficient systemic… READ MORE

ML7710 for fluorescence imaging: Detection of colorectal polyps in humans using c-Met targeted fluorescent peptide

Motivation for the study Polyps are small growths on the inner lining of the colon or rectum, affecting around 1 in 4 people over the age of 50. Certain types of polyps may eventually become cancerous, and colon cancer prevention relies on colonoscopy using white light to detect and remove the polyps. However, small and flat polyps are difficult to detect and frequently missed with this technique. More precise methods… READ MORE
