Susceptibility of Candida albicans to photodynamic therapy in a murine model of oral candidosis



Susceptibility of Candida albicans to photodynamic therapy in a murine model of oral candidosis



Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontology 109(3): 0-401



In vivo studies of antimicrobial PDT in animal models of oral candidosis are scarce and the association of porphyrin and LED light has not been evaluated for in vivo photoinactivation of Candida. In this study the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy (PDT) on the inactivation of Candida albicans in vivo was evaluated. Study design. Seventy-one 6-week-old female Swiss mice were immunosuppressed, provided tetracycline to their drinking water, then orally swabbed with a suspension of C. albicans (17 CFU/mL). Four days after oral inoculation, PDT was performed on the dorsum of the tongue after topical administration of Photogem at 4, 5, or.
