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)

Background: 5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-induced protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) fluorescence improves the differentiation of tumor and normal tissue in the bladder, skin and brain. Objective: The kinetics of 5-ALA-induced protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) fluorescence in organ cultures of normal human bronchial epithelium and cocultures of bronchial epithelium and tumor have been studied. Methods: Cultured biopsies of bronchial epithelium were exposed for 5 or 15 min, or continuously to 5-ALA. PPIX fluorescence was quantified for up to 300 min by spectroscopy. Cocultures of normal bronchial epithelium and a non-small-cell lung cancer cell line (EPLC-32M1) were incubated with 5-ALA. Space-resolved fluorescence microscopy was used to quantify PPIX fluorescence kinetics in the tumor and normal epithelium. Results: In cultures of normal epithelium, PPIX fluorescence kinetics were shown to depend on the duration of exposure to 5-ALA. There was a trend to higher fluorescence intensities with longer exposure times. ...

The ALA concentration required for half-inhibition after 24-h growth was estimated to be about 3.0 mm. Porphyrin and Bchl precursors were not found in either the cells or the growth medium. The same inhibition was also observed with cytochrome c formation. When ALA was incubated with intact cells, a large amount of ALA was converted to an unknown metabolite. The pH optimum of the conversion was 7.8. The metabolite did not react with Ehrlichs reagent, but did so with ninhydrin, giving a ...
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. It is used to visualise tumorous tissue in neurosurgical procedures. Studies since 2006 have shown that the intraoperative use of this guiding method may reduce the tumour residual volume ...
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a novel approach to cancer treatment that applies light and molecular oxygen in combination with a photosensitizing agent to selectively damage tumor tissue. The present study evaluated the effectiveness of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) mediated PDT for inducing in vitro death in MG-63 osteosarcoma cells. To determine the accumulation of the photosensitizer (protoporphyrin IX, PpIX) in response to increasing ALA concentrations in the osteosarcoma cells, cells were treated with varying concentrations of ALA (0, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10 mM) for 4 and 24 h and the intracellular conversion of ALA to PpIX was measured using spectrofluorometry. To identify the optimal ALA concentration and light exposure to induce maximum cell death, cells were treated with varying concentrations of ALA for 4 and 24 h and then exposed to different light dosages (0, 0.5, 1, 5, 10 J/cm2) using an LED array (λ= 636 nm). Cell viability was assessed using an MTT assay. It was found that the highest

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 ...
The presence of phased protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) bleach kinetics has been shown to correlate with esophageal response to 5-aminolevulinic acid-based photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT) in animal models. Here we confirm the existence of phased PpIX photobleaching by increasing the temporal resolution of the fluorescence measurements using the therapeutic illumination and long wavelength fluorescence detection. Furthermore fluorescence differential pathlength spectroscopy (FDPS) was incorporated to provide information on the effects of PpIX and tissue oxygenation distribution on the PpIX bleach kinetics during illumination. ALA at a dose of 200 mg kg−1 was orally administered to 15 rats, five rats served as control animals. PDT was performed at an in situ measured fluence rate of 75 mW cm−2 using a total fluence of 54 J cm−2. Forty-eight hours after PDT the esophagus was excised and histologically examined for PDT-induced damage. Fluence rate and PpIX photobleaching at 705 nm were monitored during ...

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. ...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is one of a novel modalities which has recently been exploited to eradicate various microorganisms. In our study we have evaluated bactericidal efficacy of PDT in the presence of 5-δ aminolaevulinic acid (ALA). Porphyromonas gingivalis were incubated with increasing concentration of ALA and subsequently irradiated by progressive light doses. Complete killing effect was obtained for bacteria irradiated with 25J/cm2 in ALA solution final concentration of 1mM, 5mM, 10mM. Statistical analysis has revealed ALA concentration to be a major factor responsible for eradication of bacteria. The latter may be attributable to the known ALA dark toxicity ...
In this study the main interest was focused on the to investigation the photodynamic efficacy of hypericin, three other photosensitizers and 5 aminolevulinic acid-induced protopofirin IX in their ability to block the growth of rather aggressive tumor - Ehrlich ascite carcinoma in mice as well as Reh cells in humans (B-leukemia). Hypericin was found to exhibit the highest phototoxicity and antitumor activity in treating Ehrlich ascite carcinoma. The different photosensitizers were ranked as follows: Hypericin > hematoporphyrin dimethyl ether > Photofrin II > meso-tetra (para-sulfophenyl)porphin > 5-aminolevulinic acid. The most important is that just after Hyp-based photodynamic therapy 75% of mice survived a 4 month-period, and no recurrence of tumor within this period was detected in 25% of the treated mice. The clear cut correlation observed between intracellular dye concentration in the tumor cells and efficiency of photodynamic therapy, supports the idea that the intracellular accumulation ...

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.

Objective: Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) are used for patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). There have been many studies on glioma stem (GS) cells, but PDD and PDT for GS cells have not been reported. Therefore, the goal of the study was to investigate the effects of PDD and PDT on GS cells in vitro.. Methods: Three cell lines were used from a primary culture of GBM with a GS cell culture. Four hours after supplementation with 5-ALA, the appearance of PpIX was determined by flow cytometry as a measure of PDD. Similarly treated cells were irradiated at 20 J/cm2 using an argon-pumped dye laser to mimic PDT.. Results: PpIX was detected in ,70% of GS cells and the death rate of GS cells was ,89% after PDT.. Conclusions: PDD and PDT with 5-ALA were very effective in GS cells. These photosynthetic techniques might be useful in therapy involving GS cells. ...
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 ...

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. ...

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. ...
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 ...
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 ...

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.. ...

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 and is converted to pyridoxal 5-phosphate in the body. Pyridoxal 5-phosphate is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, aminolevulinic acid. Although pyridoxine and vitamin B6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading. [PubChem]

Porphyrias are a group of inherited disorders resulting from enzyme defects in the heme biosynthetic pathway. A defect in the second enzyme of this pathway causes 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) dehydratase (ALAD) deficiency porphyria (ADP). A marked deficiency of ALAD causes the accumulation and subsequent urinary excretion of large amounts of ALA. Urinary porphobilinogen (PBG) remains essentially normal, which rules out other forms of acute porphyria.. ADP is an autosomal recessive acute hepatic porphyria that produces neurologic symptoms similar to those seen in acute intermittent porphyria. Symptoms include acute abdominal pain, peripheral neuropathy, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and diarrhea. Respiratory impairment, seizures, and psychosis are possible during an acute period. ADP is extremely rare with only 7 cases described in the literature since 1979.. The workup of patients with a suspected porphyria is most effective when following a stepwise approach. See Porphyria (Acute) Testing ...
0004] The present inventors have developed new nitrogen-free solvent compositions derived from levulinic acid. Levulinic acid can be obtained from a wide range of feedstocks including sucrose, starch, and lignocellulose. The preparation of levulinic acid from carbohydrates by the action of mineral acids is known from G. J. Mulder, J. Prakt. Chem. 21, 219 (1840), cited in U.S. Pat. No. 5,189,215. However, poor yields of levulinic acid are obtained (,25%) due to the formation of formic acid and other by-products, which reduce significantly the selectivity of the reaction. Recent technological advancements have circumvented the yield and selectivity problem and provide cost-effective technologies to manufacture cheap levulinic acid at large scale. For example, Fitzpatrick et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 4,897,947) disclose a method of degrading lignocellulose to furfural and levulinic acid. Ghorpade, et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 5,859,263 ...

A method and kit for simplifying and improving the sensitivity and accuracy of a lead assay for a sample solution suspected of containing lead determines the extent of a reaction between a substrate and a disulfide enzyme in the presence of an activating reagent which contains a water-soluble tertiary phosphine reagent so as to increase the activity of the disulfide enzyme for reaction with the substrate. For a colorimetric determination of the enzyme activity a chromophore is formed upon reaction with a selected component of the sample solution in the presence of a colorimetric enhancing reagent. The colorimetric enhancing reagent contains a metal ion such as cupric ion or ferric ion which is soluble in the sample solution. The extent of the chromophore formation is then photometrically determined.

Objective: To assess the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) compared with white light cystoscopy (WLC), and urine biomarkers [fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH), ImmunoCyt, NMP22] and cytology for the detection and follow-up of bladder cancer. Data sources: Major electronic databases including MEDLINE, MEDLINE In-Process, EMBASE, BIOSIS, Science Citation Index, Health Management Information Consortium and the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register were searched until April 2008. Review methods: A systematic review of the literature was carried out according to standard methods. An economic model was constructed to assess the cost-effectiveness of alternative diagnostic and follow-up strategies for the diagnosis and management of patients with bladder cancer. Results: In total, 27 studies reported PDD test performance. In pooled estimates [95% confidence interval (CI)] for patient-level analysis, PDD had higher sensitivity than WLC [92% (80% to 100%) ...

Objectives: To evaluate the safety of two applications of PEP005 (ingenol mebutate) gel in superficial basal cell carcinoma. Efficacy was a secondary end-point. Methods: Randomized, vehicle-controlled, phase IIa study conducted at eight private dermatology clinics in Australia. A total of 60 patients with histologically confirmed superficial basal cell carcinoma (lesion size, 4-15 mm) were randomized to treatment on days 1 and 2 (Arm A) or days 1 and 8 (Arm B) and, within each arm, to ingenol mebutate gel, 0.0025%, 0.01% or 0.05%, or vehicle gel. The main outcome measures were the incidence and severity of adverse events and local skin responses in Arms A and B; lesion clearance at day 85 was a secondary measure. Results: The incidence of adverse events was low. One patient treated with ingenol mebutate gel, 0.05% in Arm A experienced severe flaking/scaling/dryness extending beyond the application site. Non-severe, potentially treatment-related events included erythema extending beyond the application
Acute intermittent porphyria is an inborn error of metabolism characterized by the excretion of excess porphyrin precursors (porphobilinogen and usually δ-aminolevulinic acid) in the urine, and by sporadic attacks of neurologic dysfunction. The disease is complex, involving variable patterns of autonomic and peripheral neuropathy as well as central nervous system manifestations. There may be alterations in carbohydrate, lipid, water, and electrolyte metabolism in addition to clinically inapparent endocrine abnormalities. The fundamental defect is thought to be a 50% decrease of uroporphyrinogen I synthetase, the third enzyme of the heme biosynthetic pathway. This is associated with a marked increase of hepatic δ-aminolevulinic acid synthetase, the first and rate controlling enzyme of the pathway. The measurement of uroporphyrinogen I synthetase in erythrocytes now provides an enzyme diagnostic test for the disease. Two therapeutic approaches that may prove to reverse the fundamental disease ...

PDT combines the use of a topical solution, ALA (aminolevulinic acid) and blue light exposure to treat common skin lesions and acne. The blue light "turns on" the ALA solution that is applied to the skin for a specified amount of time. It was originally developed (here in Kingston in the 1970s) to treat skin cancer and pre-cancerous lesions and we still use it today for this. PDT is also an excellent alternative for moderate to severe acne or acne scarring in those who dont want to take medications such as antibiotics or Accutane. We can also use it for improving lines and wrinkles, large pores and benign skin lesions that develop as we age. ALA is applied to the skin, usually on the face, for an average of one to two hours. The sun-damaged skin, pre-cancerous and acne lesions preferentially absorb the ALA. Then blue or red light exposure for several minutes is used to activate the ALA in the top layers of the skin. Depending on the exposure times of the ALA and the light, downtime can be ...
The present study was carried out in five cases of hepatic porphyria, including three of acute intermittent porphyria, one of variegate porphyria, and one of porphyria cutanea tarda in clinical remission. In two cases of acute intermittent porphyria (in relapse), a marked lowering effect on serum and urine porphobilinogen and δ-aminolevulinic acid was observed, together with prompt and gratifying clinical improvement. In a third case, in chemical remission but with longstanding psychoneurosis, no significant effects were noted, nor were any observed in the case of porphyria cutanea tarda. Although clinical improvements occurred in the case of variegate porphyria, the results were inconclusive for reasons given. Hematin was generally well tolerated. Preliminary reference is made to a transitory renal injury, without sequelae, where an excess of hematin was given in relation to time. Limits of tolerance are proposed. In the light of these observations the basic mechanism of the acute attack is ...
Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a condition that can cause sudden, severe attacks of stomach pain that may last for a days to weeks. It is called a porphyria because substances called porphyrins build up in the body and can cause the symptoms. Porphyrins are normally used by the body to help cells use oxygen. In AIP, people may also experience mental changes in attacks of acute intermittent porphyria that can include insomnia or difficulty sleeping, anxiety, depression, hallucinations, confusion, paranoia, and amnesia or memory loss.. To understand more about AIP from someone who has the condition, watch this video from the American Porphyria Foundation.. ...
The antioxidant properties of protoporphyrin IX and related tetrapyrroles are poorly characterized. Therefore, eight tetrapyrroles, five of which are produced in vivo, were tested to assess their antioxidant capacities in the Salmonella reverse mutation, TEAC, FRAP and ORAC assays. Tertiary-butyl hydroperoxide (tert-BOOH) in the presence or absence of metabolic activation (ᓹ) was added to Salmonella strain TA102 together with the test compounds. In the absence of metabolic activation, the order of effectiveness was protoporphyrin , biliverdin , bilirubin ditaurate , bilirubin , biliverdin dimethyl ester , stercobilin , bilirubin dimethyl ester , urobilin. In the presence of S9, the effectiveness was reversed, with urobilin , biliverdin dimethyl ester , bilirubin dimethyl ester , stercobilin , biliverdin , bilirubin , bilirubin ditaurate , protoporphyrin. In the antioxidant capacity assays FRAP, TEAC and ORAC, mainly bilirubin, bilirubin ditaurate, biliverdin and protoporphyrin showed ...
