What is Photodynamic Therapy? 

PDT is a treatment that combines a medication (photosensitizer) with light radiation to eliminate malignant and precancerous cells. When photosensitizers are triggered by light, they release a kind of oxygen that kills adjacent cells. Light of a specified wavelength activates each photosensitizer. A laser often provides the light energy required to activate a photosensitizer. Several photosensitizer drugs treat various diseases, including cancer, acne, psoriasis, and age-related muscular degeneration. Photodynamic therapy is also useful in treating bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.
