AG/SIO2 CO - DOPED FULLERENE AS A NOVEL NANOSYSTEM FOR EFFICIENT PHOTODYNAMIC INACTIVATION OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA BIOFILM
23 till 25 August 2016، Tehran - Iran
Presentation Type: Speech
Backgroun d and Aim: Nanotechnology has made a significant contribution to Photodynamic inactivation (PDI), as one of the promising alternative treatments to combat biofilm. The effectiveness of PDI using fullerene nanoparticle (as a photosensitizer) can be improved by development of innovative multifunctional nanosystems. Here we aimed to evaluate photodynamic inactivation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm using a novel nano - based photosensitizer (a hybrid nanosystem composed of silver, silica and fullerene).
