Effect of taurine-modified Ru-complex as a photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy on brain cancer cells

23 Jun 2017

F98 represents brain cancer cells. A375, HeLa, and A549 represent skin, cervical, and lung cancer cells. The graph shows that after 10 minutes of light irradiation, all cancer cells that were treated with taurine-modified Ru-complex, the solid color lines, were mostly destroyed, with the highest efficiency apparent in brain cancer cells. The cancer cells that were not treated with the complex, the dotted lines at the top of the figure, remained in healthy conditions.
