Article
Antimicrobial photodynamic treatment (APDT) is a promising light based approach to control diseases caused by plant-pathogenic fungi. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of APDT with the phenothiazinium photosensitizer methylene blue (MB) under solar radiation on the germination and viability of conidia of the pathogenic fungus Colletotr...
Article
Candida albicans is a human pathogenic fungus mainly affecting immunocompromised patients. Resistance to the commonly used fungicides can lead to poor treatment of mucosal infections which, in turn, can result in life-threatening systemic candidiasis. In this scenario, antimicrobial photodynamic treatment (PDT) has emerged as an effective alternati...
Article
On November 5th, 2015, Samarco's iron mine dam – called Fundão – spilled 50–60 million m3 of mud into Gualaxo do Norte, a river that belongs to Rio Doce Basin. Approximately 15 km2 were flooded along the rivers Gualaxo do Norte, Carmo and Doce, reaching the Atlantic Ocean on November 22nd, 2015. Six days after, our group collected mud, soil and wat...
Article
The increasing tolerance to currently used fungicides and the need for environmentally friendly antimicrobial approaches have stimulated the development of novel strategies to control plant-pathogenic fungi such as antimicrobial phototreatment (APT). We investigated the in vitro APT of the plant-pathogenic fungus Colletotrichum acutatum with furoco...

The increasing tolerance to currently used fungicides in both clinical and agricultural areas is of great concern. The nonconventional light-based approach of antimicrobial photodynamic treatment (APDT) is a promising alternative to conventional fungicides. We evaluated the effects of APDT with four phenothiazinium derivatives (methylene blue [MB],...
Article
In the present study, the in vitro susceptibilities of five Candida spp. to photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) with four phenothiazinium derivatives, methylene blue (MB), new methylene blue N (NMBN), toluidine blue O (TBO) and the novel pentacyclic phenothiazinium photosensitiser S137, in combination with red light were investigated. Th...
Article
Photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) is a promising alternative to conventional chemotherapy that can be used to treat localized mycosis. The development of PACT depends on identifying effective and selective PS for the different pathogenic species. The in vitro susceptibilities of Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Trichophyton rubrum micro...
Article
Full-text available
The selection of fungi resistant to currently used fungicides and the emergence of new pathogenic species make the development of alternative fungus-control techniques highly desirable. Photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy (PACT) is a promising method which combines a nontoxic photosensitizer (PS) with visible light to cause selective killing of...
