Recent advances in near infrared upconverting nanomaterials for targeted photodynamic therapy of cancer

del Valle, Carla Arnau ; Hirsch, Thomas ; Marín, María J


Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a well-established treatment of cancer that uses the toxic reactive oxygen species, including singlet oxygen (O-1(2)), generated by photosensitiser (PS) drugs following irradiation of a specific wavelength to destroy the cancerous cells and tumours. Visible light is commonly used as the excitation source in PDT, which is not ideal for cancer treatment due to its ...
