Discovery of a pyridophenoselenazinium-based photosensitizer with high photodynamic efficacy against breast cancer cells

Announcing a new publication for Acta Materia Medica journal.  Development of efficient photosensitizers with minimal side effects is highly desirable for photodynamic therapy. This article reports the discovery of a novel pyridophenoselenazinium-based NIR-I photosensitizer, termed PPSe, that efficiently generated both type I and II reactive oxygen species (ROS) upon appropriate light irradiation. PPSe exhibited potent phototoxicity as well […]
