From the reviews:
“This book reviews the use of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in dermatology, covering both established uses and its use for conditions that are not commonly treated with this method. … The book is appropriate for dermatologists in training or practice, and it would be a good resource for dermatologists planning to incorporate PDT into their practice. … With its updates and in-depth practical tips on the use of PDT that other books do not have … this is a useful book.” (Roger C. Lee, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2011)

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology is the first book to cover global research on photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the management of skin disease. Although a relatively young procedure, PDT has enjoyed increased popularity during the last ten years. As research has grown, two distinct routes have appeared: the United States model and the European one, each focusing on different uses and photosensitizers. Dr. Gold has assembled the world’s experts on PDT to create a book that concisely covers every use and photosensitizer available around the world and includes comprehensive coverage of both of the FDA-approved photosensitizers in the United States, all the while carefully differentiating between off-label and FDA-approved uses of photodynamic therapy.Photodynamic Therapy in Dermatology emphasizes how to integrate PDT into practice. Toward this end, it is organized by disease category, with each chapter providing a systematic discussion of indications, PDT approaches from country to country, common side effects, prognosis as well as the underlying science. The book will be of value to dermatologists seeking a state-of-the-art review of PDT around the world, the latest in its clinical uses, and guidance on how to incorporate PDT into clinical practice.
