Improvement of systemic 5-aminolevulinic acid-based photodynamic therapy in vivo using light fractionation with a 75-minute interval. (1/636)

We have studied different single and fractionated illumination schemes after systemic administration of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) to Improve the response of nodular tumors to ALA-mediated photodynamic therapy. Tumors transplanted on the thigh of female WAG/Rij rats were transdermally illuminated with red light (633 nm) after systemic ALA administration (200 mg/kg). The effectiveness of each treatment scheme was determined from the tumor volume doubling time. A single illumination (100 J/cm2 at 100 mW/cm2, 2.5 h after ALA administration) yielded a doubling time of 6.6+/-1.2 days. This was significantly different from the untreated control (doubling time, 1.7+/-0.1 days). The only treatment scheme that yielded a significant improvement compared to all other schemes studied was illumination at both 1 and 2.5 h after ALA administration (both 100 J/cm2 at 100 mW/cm2) and resulted in a tumor volume doubling time of 18.9+/-2.9 days. A possible mechanism to explain this phenomenon is that the protoporphyrin IX formed after administration of ALA is photodegraded by the first illumination. In the 75-min interval, new porphyrin is formed enhancing the effect of the second illumination.  (+info)

Timing of illumination is essential for effective and safe photodynamic therapy: a study in the normal rat oesophagus. (2/636)

5-Aminolaevulinic acid (ALA)-induced, protoporphyrin IX (PpIX)-mediated photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an experimental treatment modality for (pre)malignant oesophageal lesions. This study aimed to optimize the time of illumination after ALA administration. Six groups of eight rats received 200 mg kg(-1) ALA orally, eight rats served as controls. Illumination was performed at 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 12 h after ALA administration with a 1-cm cylindrical diffuser placed in a balloon catheter (laser parameters: 633 nm, 25 J radiant energy, power output 100 mW). During illumination, fluorescence measurements and light dosimetry were performed. Animals were sacrificed at 48 h (n = 4) or 28 days (n = 4) after PDT. At day 28, an oesophagogram was performed. Largest PpIX fluorescence was found at 3 h after ALA administration. In vivo fluence rate was three times higher than the calculated incident fluence rate. At 48 h after PDT, major epithelial damage was found in all animals illuminated at 2 h, whereas less epithelial damage was found at 3-6 h and none at 1 and 12 h. In animals illuminated at 4, 6 and 12 h, but not at 2 h, oesophagograms showed severe dilatations and histology showed loss of Schwann cells. These results demonstrate that the choice of time interval between ALA administration and illumination is critical for achieving epithelial damage without oesophageal functional impairment. A short interval of 2-3 h seems to be most appropriate.  (+info)

Clinical spectral characterisation of colonic mucosal lesions using autofluorescence and delta aminolevulinic acid sensitisation. (3/636)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Laser induced fluorescence (LIF) from colonic mucosa was measured in vivo with and without delta aminolevulinic acid (ALA) in an attempt to differentiate between neoplasia and non-neoplasia in real time during colonoscopy. METHODS: Spectra from 32 adenomas, 68 normal sites, and 14 hyperplastic polyps in 41 patients were obtained with a point monitoring system. Twenty one of the patients had been given a low dose of ALA as a photosensitiser before the examination. Light of 337, 405, or 436 nm wavelength was used as excitation. Stepwise multivariate linear regression analysis was performed. RESULTS: With 337 nm excitation, 100% sensitivity and 96% specificity was obtained between normal mucosa and adenomas. Seventy seven per cent of the hyperplastic polyps were classified as non-neoplastic. When exciting with 405 and 436 nm, the possibility of distinguishing different types of tissue was considerably better in the ALA patients than in the non-ALA patients. CONCLUSIONS: The in vivo point measurements imply that a good discrimination between normal tissue and adenomatous polyps can be obtained using the LIF technique. Excitation at 337 nm and at 405 nm or 436 nm using ALA gives good results. LIF also shows potential for distinguishing adenomatous from hyperplastic polyps. The number of detection wavelengths could be reduced if chosen properly.  (+info)

Ultrastructural changes in PAM cells after photodynamic treatment with delta-aminolevulinic acid-induced porphyrins or photosan. (4/636)

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is the combination of a photosensitizing drug (Ps) with light in the presence of oxygen leading to the generation of reactive molecular species and destruction of cancer cells. In this study we compared PDT with two Ps, the hematoporphyrin derivative Photosan (Ph) and delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-induced endogenous protoporphyrin IX, with respect to mitochondrial function and ultrastructural alterations. The effects of PDT were investigated in PAM 212 cells after different Ps incubation times, light doses, and post-treatment periods. Both Ps induced a light dose-dependent impairment of the mitochondrial function with the dose-response curve being steep for ALA and flat for Ph. The prolongation of the incubation time from 4 to 20 h resulted in an increased reduction of mitochondrial activity after ALA PDT but not after Ph PDT. Treatment with an irradiation dose that decreased mitochondrial activity by 50% (IC50) led to early and profound changes of mitochondrial morphology in ALA photosensitized cells, whereas photosensitization with Ph resulted in more pronounced alterations of lysosomes. We conclude that at bioequivalent sublethal PDT exposures of PAM 212 cells, ALA-induced damage is primarily restricted to mitochondria, whereas Ph-induced cytotoxicity is mediated by damage of the lysosomal system.  (+info)

Role of heme in intracellular trafficking of thyroperoxidase and involvement of H2O2 generated at the apical surface of thyroid cells in autocatalytic covalent heme binding. (5/636)

Thyroperoxidase (TPO) is a glycosylated hemoprotein that plays a key role in thyroid hormone synthesis. We previously showed that in CHO cells expressing human TPO (hTPO) only 2% of synthesized hTPO reaches the cell surface. Herein, we investigated the role of heme moiety insertion in the exit of hTPO from the endoplasmic reticulum. Peroxidase activity at the cell surface and cell surface expression of hTPO were decreased by approximately 30 and approximately 80%, respectively, with succinyl acetone, an inhibitor of heme biosynthesis, and were increased by 20% with holotransferrin and aminolevulinic acid, precursors of heme biosynthesis. Results were similar with holotransferrin plus aminolevulinic acid or hemin, but hemin increased cell surface activity more efficiently (+120%) relative to the control. It had been suggested (DePillis, G., Ozaki, S., Kuo, J. M., Maltby, D. A., and Ortiz de Montellano, P. R. (1997) J. Biol. Chem. 272, 8857-8960) that covalent attachment of heme to mammalian peroxidases could be an H2O2-dependent autocatalytic processing. In our study, heme associated intracellularly with hTPO, and we hypothesized that there was insufficient exposure to H2O2 in Chinese hamster ovary cells before hTPO reached the cell surface. After a 10-min incubation, 10 microM H2O2 led to a 65% increase in cell surface activity. In contrast, in thyroid cells, H2O2 was synthesized at the apical cell surface and allowed covalent attachment of heme. Two-day incubation of primocultures of thyroid cells with catalase led to a 30% decrease in TPO activity at the cell surface. In conclusion, we provide compelling evidence for an essential role of 1) heme incorporation in the intracellular trafficking of hTPO and of 2) H2O2 generated at the apical pole of thyroid cells in the autocatalytic covalent heme binding to the TPO molecule.  (+info)

Hypoxia significantly reduces aminolaevulinic acid-induced protoporphyrin IX synthesis in EMT6 cells. (6/636)

We have studied the effects of hypoxia on aminolaevulinic acid (ALA)-induced protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) synthesis in EMT6 monolayer cultures characterized by different cell densities and proliferation rates. Specifically, after ALA incubation under hypoxic or normoxic conditions, we detected spectrofluorometrically the PpIX content of the following populations: (a) low-density exponentially growing cells; (b) high-density fed-plateau cells; and (c) high-density unfed-plateau cells. These populations were selected either for the purpose of comparison with other in vitro studies (low-density exponentially growing cells) or as representatives of tumour regions adjacent to (high-density fed-plateau cells) and further away from (high-density unfed-plateau cells) capillaries. The amount of PpIX per cell produced by each one of these populations was higher after normoxic ALA incubation. The magnitude of the effect of hypoxia on PpIX synthesis was dependent on cell density and proliferation rate. A 42-fold decrease in PpIX fluorescence was observed for the high-density unfed-plateau cells. PpIX production by the low-density exponential cells was affected the least by ALA incubation under hypoxic conditions (1.4-fold decrease), whereas the effect on the high-density fed-plateau population was intermediate (20-fold decrease).  (+info)

Optimum porphyrin accumulation in epithelial skin tumours and psoriatic lesions after topical application of delta-aminolaevulinic acid. (7/636)

Photodynamic therapy with topically applied delta-aminolaevulinic acid is used to treat skin tumours by employing endogenously formed porphyrins as photosensitizers. This study examines the time course of porphyrin metabolite formation after topical application of delta-aminolaevulinic acid. Porphyrin biosynthesis in human skin tumours (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma), in psoriatic lesions, and in normal skin was investigated. Skin areas were treated with delta-aminolaevulinic acid, and levels of total porphyrins, porphyrin metabolites and proteins were measured in samples excised after 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12 and 24 h. There was an increase in porphyrin biosynthesis in all tissues with maximum porphyrin levels in tumours between 2 and 6 h and in psoriatic lesions 6 h after treatment. The pattern of porphyrins showed no significant difference between normal and neoplastic skin, protoporphyrin being the predominant metabolite. The results suggest that optimum irradiation time for superficial epithelial skin tumours may be as soon as 2 h after application of delta-aminolaevulinic acid, whereas for treatment of psoriatic lesions an application time of 6 h is more suitable.  (+info)

The iron regulatory protein can determine the effectiveness of 5-aminolevulinic acid in inducing protoporphyrin IX in human primary skin fibroblasts. (8/636)

The level of endogenous photosensitiser, protoporphyrin IX (PPIX), can be enhanced in the cells by 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA). We investigated the effect of critical parameters such as growth state of the cells and availability of intracellular iron in modulating the level of PPIX, in human primary cultured skin fibroblasts (FEK4) maintained either in exponentially growing or growth-arrested phase, following treatment with ALA. The addition of ALA to exponentially growing cells increased the level of PPIX 6-fold relative to control cells; however, in growth-arrested cells the same treatment increased the level of PPIX up to 34-fold. The simultaneous addition of the hydrophilic iron-chelator Desferal with ALA, boosted the level of PPIX up to 47-fold in growing cells and up to 42-fold in growth-arrested cells, suggesting that iron is limiting under the latter conditions. The strict dependence of PPIX enhancement on free available iron levels was examined by the level of activation of iron regulatory protein in band shift assays. This analysis revealed that the basal level of iron regulatory protein in growth-arrested cells was 6-fold higher than in growing cells, reflecting the influence of the free available iron pool in exponentially growing cells. Interestingly, the same ratio was found between the basal level concentration of PPIX in growing and growth-arrested cells. We propose that iron regulatory protein activation could serve as a marker for developing photodynamic therapy protocols because it identifies cells and tissues with a propensity to accumulate PPIX and it is therefore likely to predict the effectiveness of such therapies.  (+info)

Aminolevulinic acid synthase (ALA synthase, ALAS, or delta-aminolevulinic acid synthase) is an enzyme (EC 2.3.1.37) that catalyzes the synthesis of D-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) the first common precursor in the biosynthesis of all tetrapyrroles such as hemes, cobalamins and chlorophylls. The reaction is as follows: succinyl-CoA + glycine ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } δ-aminolevulinic acid + CoA + CO2 This enzyme is expressed in all non-plant eukaryotes and the α-class of proteobacteria. Other organisms produce ALA through a three enzyme pathway known as the Shemin pathway. ALA is synthesized through the condensation of glycine and succinyl-CoA. In humans, transcription of ALA synthase is tightly controlled by the presence of Fe2+-binding elements, to prevent accumulation of porphyrin intermediates in the absence of iron. There are two forms of ALA synthase in the body. One form is expressed in red blood cell precursor cells (ALAS2), whereas the other (ALAS1) is ubiquitously expressed ...
δ-Aminolevulinic acid (also dALA, δ-ALA, 5ALA or 5-aminolevulinic acid), an endogenous non-protein amino acid, is the first compound in the porphyrin synthesis pathway, the pathway that leads to heme in mammals and chlorophyll in plants. 5ALA is used in photo dynamic detection and photo dynamic surgery of cancer. Being a precursor of photosensitizer, 5ALA is also used as an agent for photodynamic therapy. Photodynamic detection is the use of photosensitive drugs with a light source of the right wavelength for the detection of cancer, using fluorescence of the drug. 5ALA, or derivatives thereof, can be used to visualize bladder cancer by fluorescence imaging. It elicits synthesis and accumulation of fluorescent porphyrins (protoporphyrin IX) in epithelia and neoplastic tissues, among them malignant gliomas.

The highly malignant brain tumor, glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is difficult to fully delineate during surgical resection due to its infiltrative ingrowth and morphological similarities to surrounding functioning brain tissue. Selectiveness of GBM to 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) induced protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) is reported by other researchers to visualize tumor margins under blue light microscopy. To allow objective detection of GBM, a compact and portable fiber optic based fluorescence spectroscopy system is developed. This system is able to deliver excitation laser light (405 nm) in both the continuous and pulsed mode. PpIX fluorescence peaks are detected at 635 and 704 nm, using a fiber-coupled spectrometer. It is necessary to optimize the detection efficiency of the system as the PpIX quickly photobleaches during the laser illumination. A light dose of 2.5 mJ (fluence rate = 9 mJ/mm2) is experimentally approved to excite an acceptable level of fluourescence signal arising from ...

PDT with ALA and MAL is established as a relatively effective treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer and premalignancies. PDT is often repeated, because a single treatment gives poor long term results. Preclinical studies showed that ALA-PDT applying a fractionated illumination scheme with a small first light fraction and a second larger light fraction separated by a dark interval of two hours resulted in a significant increase in efficacy. Whereas the efficacy was not enhanced by fractionating MAL-PDT, indicating that ALA-PDT mechanism is not the same as MAL-PDT mechanism. The increase in efficacy using fractionated PDT was confirmed clinically. A randomized comparative clinical study comparing fractionated ALA-PDT versus non-fractionated ALA-PDT in the treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma showed a significant higher response rate in the lesions treated with fractionated ALA-PDT after a follow-up of one year ( p,0.002, log-rank test). The five year follow-up is studied at moment. So ...
This study aims to determine the safety and utility of using 5-Aminolevulinic Acid (ALA) in removing brain tumors during surgery. When ALA is provided at an increased concentration, protoporphorin concentration in the malignant cell increases and renders the cell fluorescent under long ultraviolet light. This study looks at using oral ALA to help identify the tumor cells intraoperatively and facilitate complete resection.. Oral ALA will be given prior to image-guided microsurgical resection of the tumor. Following tumor resection under light microscopy, the tumor bed will be illuminated and any residual fluorescent tissue in cavity will be surgically removed leading to a more complete resection of tumor. Pathologic confirmation of tumor type will be made by neuropathology. Photosensitizer concentration in malignant and normal tissue will be estimated by fluorescence microscopy. ...

University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Department of Neurosurgery, Kitakyushu, Japan DOI : 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.10594-14.1 5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-induced fluorescence-guided resection is a widely used procedure for patients with malignant gliomas. However, the clinical application of 5-ALA for surgery in primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is uncommon. Here, we present a case of PCNSL treated using 5-ALA-induced fluorescence-guided resective surgery. A 70-year-old woman presented with cerebellar ataxia, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an irregularly shaped and homogenously enhanced mass with surrounding brain edema in the vermis that extended to the right hemisphere of the cerebellum. Under the preoperative diagnosis of a malignant glioma in the cerebellum, the patient underwent 5-ALA-induced fluorescence-guided surgery. Under blue light illumination, the tumor revealed strong 5-ALA-induced fluorescence. The tumor was identified as a diffuse large B-cell ...

However, the cellular behaviors of cancer cells survived from PDT are still not clear. This study attempted to investigate the influence of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-based PDT on the invasion ability as well as molecular changes in surviving cancer cells and their progeny. Materials and Methods: The systematic effects of ALA-PDT were evaluated using human invasive carcinoma cells (lung adenocarcinoma CL1-5 cells, melanoma A375 cells and breast carcinoma MDA-MB-231 cells). To study the cellular behaviors of surviving cancer cells, PDT-derived variants were established as stable cell lines after ...
The porphyrin precursor delta-aminolaevulinic acid can significantly decrease the resting membrane potential in a single fibre from the sartorius muscle of the frog Rana angolensis.
Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) synthetase appears to be the rate-limiting step in heme biosynthesis and enzymatically forms δ-aminolevulinic acid from succinyl coenzyme A and glycine. The end-product heme then exerts negative-feedback regulation on ALA synthetase, resulting in a very efficient biosynthetic pathway. ALA synthetase is also rapidly inducible as it relates to the drugs causing an increased demand on heme products, namely cytochromes. The manifestations of the disease are thought to be due to an increase in the activity of this enzyme, a decrease in heme production, or an increased porphyrin accumulation in tissues. The increased levels of precursors, as a result of specific enzyme deficiency, are irreversibly oxidized to the porphyrins, which have no other known physiologic function, and lead to tissue accumulation and neuronal damage. ...
Total resection of glioblastoma, the highly malignant brain tumor, is difficult to accomplish due to its diffuse growth and similarity to the surrounding brain tissue. A total resection is proven to increase patient survival. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate fiber-optical based fluorescence spectroscopy for quantitative demarcation of malignant brain tumors during the surgery. Five-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) was used as a fluorescence contrast agent that accumulated as protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in the tumor.. The method was evaluated at the Department of Neurosurgery, Linköping University Hospital. The patients (n = 22) received an oral dose of 5 mg/kg body weight 5-ALA two hours prior to craniotomy. Measurements with a developed fluorescence spectroscopy system were performed under the general procedure of surgery. The collected fluorescence spectra were quantified by defining a fluorescence ratio and the main challenges of measuring and quantifying spectra were investigated. The ...

Laser therapy in dermatology: what have we learnt in the last decade? L Y Chong The Hong Kong Practitioner VOLUME 23 August 2001 pages 323-330.. Green light is effective and less painful than red light in photodynamic therapy of facial solar keratoses.. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with topically applied delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is increasingly employed to treat patients with multiple solar keratoses and superficial skin tumors. For these indications, ALA-PDT has been shown to be highly efficient. Treatment of multiple or extended lesions, however, is substantially hampered by the fact that ALA-PDT is associated with burning pain during the irradiation procedure. The standard irradiation devices commonly used for ALA-PDT emit red light around 630 nm. In the present half-side comparison study we have observed that ALA-PDT employing a green light irradiation device (543-548 nm) is equally effective, as compared with standard red light ALA-PDT. In contrast to red light ALA-PDT, however, green ...
Photodynamic medicine is a novel approach for cancer therapy and diagonosis via different photosensitizers and suitable light source. The 5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) can be converted into protoporphyrin IX (Pp IX ) that can be utilized as a fluorescent probe for tumor detection, however, this biosynthetic pathway also can be occurred in normal flora, including E. coli, in the colon and rectum that influence the efficacy of tumor detection. In this study, 5-ALA was encapsulated in chitosan nanoparticles to prevent uptake of E. coli. This result implied that chitosan can exclude the influence of normal flora inside the gut and serves as an ideal vector of colon-specific drug delivery system. According to this concept, we designed a novel photodynamic detection system to enhance the accuracy of endoscopic diagnosis for early colorectal cancer.

Anesthesiologist Dr. Egbert Mik, building on his invention made together with Dr. Michiel Sinaasappel, developed the protoporphyrin IX triplet state lifetime technique (PpIX-TSLT). It is the first practical way to clinically measure oxygen availability and consumption where oxygen is needed: in the tissue cells rather than in the blood. It uses the oxygen dependent duration of the glow-in-the-dark of the precursor to heme. This protoporphyrin IX is metabolized in epidermal mitochondria after local priming with aminolevulinic acid used in photodynamic therapy or diagnosis. The signal therefore originates only in active mitochondria and reflects the balance between oxygen supply and demand. The COMETs skin sensor collects a signal from several square millimeters of epidermis, providing an average value for the different cells. In a preclinical trial the oxygenation of cells in the gut has been measured with an endoscopic sensor. Ultimately, interstitial probes, even imaging, should be feasible ...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) represents a noninvasive option for the treatment of numerous, thin, nonhyperkeratotic AKs.[204,205] Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) or methyl-aminolevulinate (MAL) is first applied to the skin at the target area, where it is absorbed and accumulates inside dysplastic and neoplastic cells up to 10 times faster than in normal cells.[206-209] It is converted to a potent photosensitizer, protoporphyrin IX, which, when exposed to a light source, activates and leads to the formation of reactive oxygen species and destruction of dysplastic cells.[11] When undergoing PDT, patients often complain of stinging, burning, and itching at the site of treatment. Erythema, scaling, and crusting may be evident after treatment, but usually the area heals with no evidence of scarring.[5]. Field-directed therapy for the prevention of new cancer formation may be beneficial to individuals with multiple precancerous lesions. In a study by Apalla et al,[210] 45 patients previously diagnosed with ...
δ-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) and its methyl ester (m-ALA) are both used in photodynamic therapy (PDT) of certain non melanoma skin cancers as the basal cell carcinoma (BCC). In PDT the cancer cells are destroyed by a photochemical reaction that occurs when a photosensitive molecule is irradiated with light of a certain wavelength. The topically delivered ALA or m-ALA is, through the heme biosynthesis, transformed into the photosensitizer and accumulated in the chosen area. In this thesis ALA and m-ALA (as hydrochloride salts) were incorporated in the monoolein/propylene glycol/water (MO/PG/water) sponge phase. The addition of up to 16% of the methyl ester made the samples more or less anisotropic dependent on the amount added. Isotropic liquids were reformed when water was added and the samples were characterized with nuclear magnetic resonance diffusometry (NMRD) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) in order to confirm the reformation of the bicontinuous sponge phase.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer affecting Caucasians and, due to its large size or to the poor condition of the patient, it can be difficult to treat it with conventional therapies: in these cases photodynamic therapy with methyl aminolevulinate (MAL-PDT) may represent a good option. A retrospective non-comparative follow-up study was performed to test the response of giant and large BCC to MAL-PDT. Twelve patients with 14 giant BCC (≥ 5 cm) and 5 patients with 5 large BCC (4-5 cm) were treated with MAL-PDT; they were evaluated 6 months after the end of the treatment to define the initial cure rate, and then at 12 and 36 months for the follow-up. At 6 months the initial cure rate for the 19 BCCs was 95% and at 36 months the overall long-term cure rate was 66%. The follow-up will last up to 5 years. MAL-PDT is a valid option for the treatment of giant and large BCC ...

Experiments are described in which the individual properties of the two 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) binding sites, the A-site and the P-site, of 5-aminolaevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD) have been investigated. The ALA binding affinity at the A-site is greatly enhanced (at least 10-fold) on the binding of the catalytic metal ion (bound at the alpha-site). The nature of the catalytic metal ion, Mg2+ or Zn2+, also gave major variations in the substrate Km, P-site affinity for ALA, the effect of potassium and phosphate ions and the pH-dependence of substrate binding. Modification of the P-site by reaction of the enzyme-substrate Schiff base with NaBH4 and analysis of the reduced adduct by electro-spray mass spectrometry indicated a maximum of 1 mol of substrate incorporated/mol of subunit, correlating with a linear loss of enzyme activity. The reduced Schiff-base adduct was used to investigate substrate binding at the A-site by using rate-of-dialysis analysis. The affinity for ALA at the A-site of ...

Fluorescence-guided resection with 5-aminolevulinic acid has been shown to be useful in the resection of certain brain tumors other than high grade gliomas, facilitating the intraoperative differentiation of neoplastic tissue. The technique enables the surgeon to ensure that no tumor fragments remain, thereby achieving higher rates of complete resection.. Tihan first described pilomyxoid astrocytomas in 1999. They are currently classified as grade II astrocytoma according to the WHO classification system and, because of their tendency to recur and their dissemination through the cerebrospinal fluid pathways, they are considered to be more aggressive than pilocytic astrocytoma. As a result, management of these tumors must be more aggressive, always aiming for complete macroscopic resection whenever possible.. In this article, we present a case of pilomyxoid astrocytoma of the third ventricle in which the use of fluorescence-guided resection with 5-ALA facilitated complete resection. Imaging tests ...
Peritumoral hemangioblastoma cysts are usually composed of fibrous tissue without tumor cells. The authors describe the first case in which fluorescence with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) was used to diagnose a hemangioblastoma tumor in a peritumoral cyst wall. A 27-year-old woman with a homogeneous, enhanced nodular lesion in the right hemisphere of the cerebellum underwent surgical treatment. After the nodular lesion was removed, the cyst region was observed with the aid of a semiconductor laser with a peak wavelength of 405 ± 1 nm, which was powered using a fiberoptic cable. The cyst region was visualized with strong fluorescence, which disappeared after tissue removal. The fluorescent cyst consisted of tumor cells. The authors conclude that fluorescence diagnosis performed using 5-ALA can inform the choice of removing hemangioblastoma cysts. ...
Effects of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-containing supernatants from selected Rhodopseudomonas palustris strains on rice growth under NaCl stress, with mediating effects on chlorophyll, photosynthetic electron transport and antioxidative enzymes
2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, a toxic contaminant frequently formed during the synthesis of the herbicide 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid, was shown to be a potent inducer of hepatic δ-aminolevulinic acid synthetase in the chick embryo. As little as 4.66 x 10-12 mole of the contaminant per egg produces a significant increase in the activity of the enzyme. Induction of the enzyme is related to the dose of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and, in contrast to that produced with other drugs, is prolonged in time, with 70 percent of the maximum induced activity present 5 days after a single dose. This contaminant is implicated as the likely causative agent in an outbreak of porphyria cutanea tarda in workers in a factory where 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid was being synthesized. ...
Aquaporins play a direct role in plant water relation under salt stress, but the effects of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) on aquaporin gene expression in salt-treated plants remain unknown. This study investigated the potential effects of exogenous ALA (50 mg/dm3) on aquaporin expression levels under salt stress (75 mM NaCl) in the salt-sensitive (Jinchun No.4) and the relatively salt-tolerant cucumber (Jinyou No.1) seedlings.
Topical 5-aminolevulinic acid-based photodynamic therapy (PDT) has produced complete response rates of ,90% for nonmelanoma skin carcinomas, which are mostly human papillomavirus (HPV) negative. Using a similar treatment protocol, we observed a short-term response in only one third (10 of 32) of high-grade vulval intraepithelial neoplasia (VIN 2-3) lesions. Unifocal lesions were found more responsive than multifocal and pigmented lesions. Animal model studies have suggested that long-term PDT response involves an immune reaction in which CTLs play a crucial role. In this study, we have assessed: (a) HPV infection; (b) HLA expression; and (c) immune infiltrating cells in VIN biopsies from responders and nonresponders to determine whether these factors may limit response to topical 5-aminolevulinic acid-based PDT. Tissues from normal vulva (n = 9), vulval carcinoma (n = 11), and VIN (32 patients from which 19 pre- and 43 post-PDT biopsies were taken) were investigated for immune cell infiltration ...
The hexylester of 5-aminolevulinic acid (HAL) is a very efficient precursor of the photosensitizer protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) for photodynamic therapy (PDT). Our previous study, performed in rat orthotopic bladder tumors, indicated an opposite effect of HAL/PpIX-PDT according to HAL concentration. The present study investigated possible reasons for this differential effect considering the impact of extracted amounts of PpIX in normal and tumor bearing bladders along with PpIX distribution in distinctive histopathological layers. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis of tumor and normal bladder tissues after 8 mM and 16 mM HAL instillation showed that PpIX was the main porphyrin species. The PpIX production in tumor bladders instilled with 8 mM HAL was significantly higher than after 16 mM HAL. Fluorescence confocal microscopy demonstrated a punctuate bright fluorescence pattern in tumor zones of bladders instilled with 8 mM HAL, whereas a more diffuse cytoplasmatic fluorescence
In order to understand the origin of bladder cancer, very early urothelial lesions must be investigated in addition to more advanced tumors. Tissue from 31 biopsies of 12 patients with urothelial hyperplasias and simultaneous or consecutive superficial papillary tumors were used to microdissect urothelium from 15- microm sections of biopsies. The biopsies were obtained with the recently developed highly sensitive diagnostic method of 5-aminolevulinic acid-induced fluorescence endoscopy (AFE). Besides flat and papillary urothelial neoplasms, the method of photodynamic diagnostics also detects simple urothelial hyperplasias as fluorescent positive lesions. In addition, 12 fluorescence-positive biopsies showing histologically normal urothelium were investigated. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was done using a dual color staining technique of biotinylated centromeric probes of chromosomes 9 and 17 and digoxigenin-labeled gene-specific P1 probes for chromosomes 9q22 (FACC), 9p21(p16/CDKI2), and ...
Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) is a technique that enhances the detection of tumors during cystoscopy using a photosensitizer which accumulates primarily in cancerous cells and will fluoresce when illuminated by violetblue light. A disadvantage of PDD is the relatively low specificity. In this retrospective study we aimed to identify predictors for false positive findings in PDD. Factors such as gender, age, recent transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT), previous intravesical therapy (IVT) and urinary tract infections (UTIs) were examined for association with the false positive rates in a multivariate analysis. Data of 366 procedures and 200 patients were collected. Patients were instilled with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) intravesically and 1253 biopsies were taken from tumors and suspicious lesions. Female gender and TURBT are independent predictors of false positives in PDD. However, previous intravesical therapy with Bacille Calmette-Guérin is also an important predictor of false ...
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the test performance and clinical effectiveness of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) compared with white light cystoscopy (WLC) in people suspected of new or recurrent bladder cancer. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), nonrandomized comparative studies, or diagnostic cross-sectional studies comparing PDD with WLC. Fifteen electronic databases and Web sites were searched (last searches April 2008). For clinical effectiveness, only RCTs were considered. RESULTS: Twenty-seven studies (2,949 participants) assessed test performance. PDD had higher sensitivity than WLC (92 percent, 95 percent confidence interval [CI], 80-100 percent versus 71 percent, 95 percent CI, 49-93 percent) but lower specificity (57 percent, 95 percent CI, 36-79 percent versus 72 percent, 95 percent CI, 47-96 percent). For detecting higher risk tumors, median range sensitivity of PDD (89 percent [6-100 percent]) was higher than WLC (56 percent [0

The role of heme in the regulation of δ-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) synthetase was studied in fetal rat liver. The activity of ALA synthetase, the first and rate-limiting enzyme in the heme-biosynthetic pathway, is 10 times higher in fetal rat liver mitochondria than in adults. Hemin injection depresses mitochondrial ALA synthetase activity in the adult but not in the fetus. Cycloheximide, a selective inhibitor of protein synthesis in cytoplasmic ribosomes, but not in mitochondria, causes a rapid decrease in fetal mitochondrial ALA synthetase activity. When hemin is given prior to cycloheximide, a slower rate of turnover of mitochondrial ALA synthetase activity occurs than after cycloheximide alone. Treatment with 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole, an inhibitor of δ-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase, the second enzyme in heme biosynthesis, causes a decrease in fetal mitochondrial ALA synthetase activity but no decrease in the extramitochondrial enzyme levels. These studies indicate that heme may facilitate ...

The benefit of cytoreductive surgery for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is unclear, and selection bias in past series has been observed. The 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) study investigated the influence of fluorescence-guided resections on outcome and generated an extensive database of GBM patients with optimized resections. We evaluated whether the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group recursive partitioning analysis (RTOG-RPA) would predict survival of these patients and whether there was any benefit from extensive resections depending on RPA class. A total of 243 per-protocol patients with newly diagnosed GBM were operated on with or without ALA and treated by radiotherapy. Postoperative MRI was obtained in all patients. Patients were allocated into RTOG-RPA classes III-V based on age, KPS, neurological condition, and mental status (as derived from the NIH Stroke Scale). Median overall survival among RPA classes III, IV, and V was 17.8, 14.7, and 10.7 months, respectively, with 2-year survival rates ...

To evaluate fluorescence cystoscopy with hexaminolevulinate (HAL) in the early detection of dysplasia (DYS) and carcinoma in situ (CIS) in select high risk patients. We selected 30 consecutive bladder cancer patients at high risk for progression. After endoscopic resection, all patients received (a) induction BCG schedule when needed, and (b) white light and fluorescence cystoscopy after 3 months. HAL at doses of 85 mg (GE Healthcare, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom) dissolved in 50 ml of solvent to obtain an 8 mmol/L solution was instilled intravesically with a 12 Fr catheter into an empty bladder and left for 90 minutes. The solution was freshly prepared immediately before instillation. Cystoscopy was performed within 120 minutes of bladder emptying. Standard and fluorescence cystoscopy was performed using a double light system (Combilight PDD light source 5133, Wolf, Germany) which allowed an inspection under both white and blue light. The overall incidence was 43.3% dysplasia, 23.3% CIS, and 13.3%
Lumicures treatment is a new twist on an existing treatment called photodynamic therapy. It starts with a cream containing aminolevulinic acid, which becomes photosensitive when it comes in contact with a cancer lesion. When exposed to light, the cream interacts with only the cancerous cells, making it a very selective skin treatment.. Lumicures light source is a low-powered organic light-emitting diode embedded in a small adhesive device. Its battery module - roughly the size of an MP3 player - fits easily in a pocket.. The device is estimated to cost about $200 to $300, compared with roughly $15,000 to $20,000 for the standard therapy. Human trials are ongoing and the company hopes to launch the device in about two years.. ...

Toenail infection (or onychomycosis) is one of the most common fungal diseases that affects a significant percentage of the general population. Curing it with the use of oral drugs and topical anti-fungal lotions often turns out to be laborious and tricky with questionable results, while the infection frequently relapses after a period of time. As a consequence, a number of alternative physical treatments have emerged, slowly gaining popularity thanks to several in vitro studies already showing encouraging results. Three of these alternative solutions are photodynamic therapy, laser therapy and plasma therapy.. Photodynamic therapy works by employing photosensitive agents (such as methylene blue dye, methyl-aminolevulinate, aminolevulinic acid or rose bengal) applied directly to the targeted area and irradiated with a light of specific wavelength and oxygen to generate reactive oxygen species which ultimately eliminate the infected tissue.

[2-14C]-glycine (57 mCi/mmol) was purchased from ICN Biomedicals (Cleveland, OH), and δ-[3,5-3H]aminolevulinic acid (1.87 Ci/mmol) was obtained from DuPont NEN Radiochemicals (Wilmington, DE). Zn protoporphyrin 9 (ZnPP9) was obtained from Porphyrin Products.. Assay of heme oxygenase activity. Microsomes were prepared from each tissue as previously described (Schacter, 1978). Heme oxygenase activity was measured by the method of Tenhunen et al. (1970a). Briefly, the 1.0 ml reaction mixture contained 0.1 m potassium phosphate buffer (pH 7.4), microsomes (1 mg of protein), 17 μm hemin, 180 μm NADPH, and purified biliverdin reductase (step 3, 1 mg of protein) (Tenhunen et al., 1970b). The reaction was performed for 10 min at 37°C. Blank assays were conducted in the absence of NADPH. The rate of bilirubin formation was calculated from the rate of increase in absorbance (468 nm). The extinction coefficient, obtained with standards in the reaction mixture, was 13.9 mm−1cm−1.. Cell ...
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a special treatment performed with a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan (5-aminolevulinic acid or ALA) activated with the correct wavelength of light.
Modified tetrapyrroles are versatile compounds that are universally utilized by enzymes as co-factors in a myriad of enzyme cata lyzed reaction s. Examples include heme, the cofactor of hemoglobin and myoglobin, that carries and stores molecular oxygen in the blood and muscle respectively, and cobalamin a cofactor that is synthesized by prokaryotes and which is an important nutrient for humans. This work focuses on the enzymatic mechanism of metal chelation and in particular on the structural characterization of the cobalt-chelatases CbiK from Salmonella enterica and CbiX from Archaeoglobus /u/gidus that take part in the biosynthesis of cobalamin. Crystal structures of the enzyme-tetrapyrrole complex were obtained that reveal radically different modes of binding compared to the well characterized ferrochelatases. Furthermore protein structures reveal the evolutionary re lationships between cobaltochelatases from different organisms. The second part of this thesis is focusing on 5-aminolevulinic ...

Pyridoxine is the 4-methanol form of vitamin B6, an important water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in many foods. As its classification as a vitamin implies, Vitamin B6 (and pyridoxine) are essential nutrients required for normal functioning of many biological systems within the body. While many plants and microorganisms are able to synthesize pyridoxine through endogenous biological processes, animals must obtain it through their diet. More specifically, pyridoxine is converted to pyridoxal 5-phosphate in the body, which is an important coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. Its important to note that Vitamin B6 is the collective term for a group of three related compounds, pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine, and their phosphorylated derivatives, pyridoxine 5-phosphate, pyridoxal 5-phosphate and pyridoxamine 5-phosphate. Although all six of these compounds should technically be referred to as
