Journal Article
Spagnul, C., Turner, L. C., & Boyle, R. W. (2015). Immobilized photosensitizers for antimicrobial applications. Journal of photochemistry and photobiology. B, Biology, 150(September), (11-30). doi:10.1016/j.jphotobiol.2015.04.021. ISSN 1011-1344

Photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) is a very promising alternative to conventional antibiotics for the efficient inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms; this is due to the fact that it is virtually impossible for resistant strains to d... Read More
