Published: Thu Aug 08 2019

Being the disease with the highest impact on global health, cancer looms as a worldwide health problem. In spite of all the technological enhancements, metastasis and recurrence still remain a bottleneck in patients for an apt treatment in clinic. With photodynamic therapy (PDT) reducing long-term morbidity and not compromising on other treatment options, PDT has appeared as a promising alternative treatment for controlling malignant disease.

These insights are according to the intelligence report, titled, "Global Market Study on Photodynamic Therapy: Introduction of Drug Devices Combination to Renew Interest," which has been of late added to Market Research Reports Search Engine’s (MRRSE) exhaustive armamentarium.

Of late, due to the invention of second-generation PDT using talaporfin sodium and diode laser, photodynamic therapy is being performed with less phototoxicity and has gained momentum in the treatment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Nevertheless, photodynamic therapy has been approved as a palliative treatment for patients with symptomatic obstructive esophageal cancer in the U.S. Meanwhile, the complicated procedure and adverse events and the development of alternative endoscopic procedures such as cryotherapy, radiofrequency and endoscopic submucosal dissection have confined the practice of photodynamic therapy in esophageal cancer.

As opposed to other common cancer therapies such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy not only decimates cancer cells directly, but also leads to acute inflammation, thereby resulting in immune stimulation and increased presentation of tumor derived antigens to T cells. Moreover, photodynamic therapy has been approved as an effective method for the treatment of scores of cancer, including gastrointestinal (GI) cancer.
