Dendritic cell activation by aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic treatment of human glioblastoma spheroids

N. Etminan, C. Peters, H.J. Steiger & R.V. Sorg
Objective: Aminolevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy (ALA/PDT) in glioblastoma patients allows for induction of long-sustaining clinical responses and can improve survival of patients, suggesting an immunological component to PDT even for cranial tumors. For such immunological responses[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
