Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising technique for several types of anti-cancer therapy, exploiting a photosensitizer, a light source and oxygen. The present work computationally investigates the properties of poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) and poly(propyleneimine) (PPI) dendrimers of generation 3 and 4 as potential nanoscale drug delivery systems for Rose Bengal (RB), a candidate photosensitizer for PDT.

Abstract

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising technique for several types of anti-cancer therapy, exploiting a photosensitizer, a light source and oxygen. The present work computationally investigates the properties of poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) and poly(propyleneimine) (PPI) dendrimers of generation 3 and 4 as potential nanoscale drug delivery systems for Rose Bengal (RB), a candidate photosensitizer for PDT.
