Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new technology, which consists in utilizing laser drug delivery methods for the purposes of photodrug therapy. According to this technology, photosensitizer is applied onto the treated surface and then the solution is either impregnated or injected into the medium, with it being suggested to employ laser drug delivery techniques for the impregnation and injection of the photosensitizer. After introducing the photosensitizer, the area is illuminated by a matrix of light-emission diodes.
