5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is a precursor of heme. ALA is used as a photosensitive substance in photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) because heme metabolism is abnormal in tumor cells and a photosensitive metabolite of heme synthesis from ALA

Preoperative noninvasive imaging to estimate the quantity and spatial distribution of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) accumulation in tumors induced by 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) administration is expected to improve the efficacy of ALA-based fluorescence-guided resection and photo- and sonodynamic therapies. PpIX synthesis

Photodynamic therapy and photodiagnosis of cancer requires preferential accumulation of fluorescent photosensitizers in tumors. Clinical evidence documents feasibility of ALA-based photodiagnosis for tumor detection. However, false positive results and large variations in fluorescence intensities are also reported. Furthermore, selective accumulation

Gliomas contain aggressive malignant cancer, and resection rate remains an important factor in treatment. Currently, fluorescence-guided resection using orally administered 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) has proved to be beneficial in improving the prognosis of patients with gliomas. 5-ALA is metabolized to

Cancer cells synthesize substantial amounts of protoporphyrin IX( PPIX) from aminolevulinic acid( ALA). PPIX emits red fluorescence when illuminated under blue light. Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD), based on this phenomenon, is currently used; however, various microorganisms also show the same fluorescence

Treatments of infections are not always successful because of multi-antibiotic-resistant organisms. It is therefore particularly urgent to provide more effective anti-infective strategy against these organisms. 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA), with the chemical structure C5H9NO3, is the only photodynamic therapy agent that

Targeted inhibition of multidrug ABCG2 transporter is believed to improve cancer therapeutics. However, the consequences of ABCG2 inhibition have not been systematically evaluated since ABCG2 is expressed in several organs including the liver. Here, we demonstrate that ABCG2-deficient hepatocytes have
