Access from EThOS:
Topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) elicits a therapeutic response in both non melanoma skin cancer and immune-mediated skin disorders. Production of reactive oxygen species may result in direct cell death; however PDT-induced inflammatory and immune responses may also contribute to the therapeutic effects. The aims of my thesis were to examine for evidence of topical PDT-induced apoptosis and leucocyte trafficking, and the mechanisms underlying their mediation, in human skin.
