Nanoparticles in Photodynamic Therapy

The therapeutic properties of light have been known for thousands of years, but it was only in the last century that Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) was developed. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses the combination of dyes with visible light to produce reactive oxygen species and kill bacteria and destroy unwanted tissue. Nanotechnology plays a great role in solubilizing the photosensitizers, metal Nanoparticles can carry out Plasmon resonance enhancement, and fullerenes can act as photosensitizers, themselves.
