2017 OCT 7 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Obesity, Fitness & Wellness Week -- Data detailed on Nanotechnology - Nanocarriers have been presented. According to news originating from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a non-invasive technique used in the treatment of malignant and non-malignant skin diseases. It offers great promise because of its simplicity, enhanced patient compliance, localisation of the photosensitizer, as well as the use of light and oxygen to achieve photocytotoxicity."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Medical University, "Despite progress in photosensitizer-mediated topical PDT, its clinical application is limited by poor penetration of photosensitizers through the skin. Therefore, much effort has been made to develop nanocarriers that can tackle the challenges of conventional photos ensitizer-mediated PDT for topical delivery."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This review discusses recent data on the use of different types of lipid-based nanocarriers in delivering photosensitizer for topical PDT."
