We previously developed a new zinc(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPc) derivative (Pc 1) conjugated to poly-L-glutamic acid (PGA) (1-PG) to address the limitations of ZnPc as part of an antitumor photodynamic therapy approach, which include hydrophobicity, phototoxicity, and nonselectivity in biodistribution and tumor targeting. During this study, we discovered that 1-PG possessed high near-infrared (NIR) light absorptivity (λmax = 675 nm), good singlet oxygen generation efficiency in an aqueous environment, and enhanced photocytotoxic efficacy and cancer cell uptake in vitro. In the current study, we discovered that 1-PG accumulated in 4T1 mouse mammary tumors, with a retention time of up to 48 h. Furthermore, as part of an antitumor PDT, low dose 1-PG (2 mg of Pc 1 equivalent/kg) induced a greater tumor volume reduction (−74 ± 5%) when compared to high dose ZnPc (8 mg/kg, −50 ± 12%). At higher treatment doses (8 mg of Pc 1 equivalent/kg), 1-PG reduced tumor volume maximally (−91 ± 6%) and suppressed tumor size to...

Abstract Active targeting compound, a non-iodinated derivative of IK-IK-I2-azaBODIPY (1a) was previously reported to preferentially bind melanoma over healthy cells. In this study, we evaluate the photodynamic therapy (PDT) efficiency on melanoma cells of 1a, together with its reversed sequence compound KI-KI-I2-azaBODIPY (1b) and a non-targeted control I2-azaBODIPY-NH2 (2). All three test compounds possess absorption wavelengths in the near-infrared (NIR) region (λmax between 678 and 687 nm) wh...

Phthalocyanines exhibit superior photoproperties that make them a surely attractive class of photosensitisers for photodynamic therapy of cancer. Several derivatives are at various phases of clinical trials, and efforts have been put continuously to improve their photodynamic efficacy. To this end, various strategies have been applied to develop advanced phthalocyanines with optimised photoproperties, dual therapeutic actions, tumour-targeting properties and/or specific activation at tumour site...

Abstract Octa-(4-tyrosylamido) phenyl substituted Zn(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPcTyr8) was synthesized and characterized as potential photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy (PDT). The new ZnPcTyr8 was evaluated in comparison to recently synthesized tetra-(4-tyrosylamido) phenyl substituted Zn(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPcTyr) and used as a standard unsubstituted Zn(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPc). The photophysical properties of absorption and fluorescence, and photochemical properties of singlet oxygen gene...

Abstract Using comprehensive analysis of heart rate (HRV) and blood pressure (BPV) short-term variability we estimated the time course of changes of autonomic nervous system remodeling in two stages of doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy (DCM). We also investigated the level of gene expression of cardiac β-1 (β-1AR) and β-2 (β-2AR) adrenoceptors. Experiments were performed in adult male Wistar rats equipped with indwelling catheters for BP recording and blood withdrawal. A 15 mg/kg total cumulati...
