" Preactivation is a process by which photoactive compounds are first exposed to light and thereby converted into new potential drugs that function independent of light. Basic and preclinical studies have revealed the dramatic therapeutic potential of some of these compounds. Thus, preactivation can be used to convert thousands of existing photoactive compounds into new poten tial anticancer and antiviral agents. Although the process of preactivation uses a principle of photodynamic therapy, the resulting products are strictly chemotherapeutic in nature, in that they function independent of light. Once identified, the photoproducts gener ated via the process of preactivation can be chemically synthesized. Therapeutic use of light energy by itself or as an activating agent for light reactive chemicals dates back to ancient Egypt. Since those times, one funda mental principle of photodynamic therapy has remained constant: light energy is always applied after the light-reactive chemical or photoactive agent has arrived at the target.

Klappentext

This book is about a discovery termed "preactivation" that is considered a major breakthrough in photodynamic therapy and in drug development. The process of preactivation generates previously unknown chemotherapeutic agents that are not only effective against malignancies and viral infections, but are also easily tolerated.
