ENTITY POTENCY SAFETY_INFORMATION EVIDENCE PMID
Indocyanine green (ICG) and ethylenediamine tetraacetate (EDTA)PACT mediated by ICG and EDTA led to a more pronounced antibacterial effect in S. aureus and P. aeruginosa compared with ICG alone-mediated PACT. P. aeruginosa was more sensitive to ICG and EDTA-mediated PACT than S. aureus.Antimicrobial Photodynamic therapy(A-PDT) or Photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) has been proposed as an alternative approach for inactivating bacteria, especially resistant bacterial biofilms.30633998
Methylene blue (MB)-PDTMB-PDT led to complete inhibition of all isolates at geometric mean concentrations of 1-16 mg/L. Efficacy was independent of incubation time prior to illumination, terbinafine susceptibility (MICs ?0.004-4 mg/L) and presence of SQLE mutationsTerbinafine resistant and susceptible strains are equally susceptible to MB-PDT.33497815
