Stefflova K, Chen J & Zheng G Frontiers in Bioscience, 2007 Molecular beacons are essentially all probes that illuminate particular cellular target or cells with similar characteristics. In this review we focus on those molecular beacons that use near-infrared fluorescence imaging (NIRF-I) to identify the unique cellular and metabolic markersContinue Reading

Stefflova K, Chen J & Zheng G Current Medicinal Chemistry, 2007 Precisely localizing therapeutic agents in neoplastic areas would greatly improve their efficacy for killing tumor cells and reduce their toxicity to normal cells. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising cancer treatment modality, and near-infrared fluorescence imaging (NIRF-I) is aContinue Reading
