Bio-imaging and Photodynamic Therapy with Tetra Sulphonatophenyl Porphyrin (TSPP)-TiO2 Nanowhiskers: New Approaches in Rheumatoid Arthritis Theranostics.


ABSTRACT: Since Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the major human joint diseases with unknown etiology, the early diagnosis and treatment of RA remains a challenge. In this contribution we have explored the possibility to utilize novel nanocomposites of tetera suplhonatophenyl porphyrin (TSPP) with titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanowhiskers (TP) as effective bio-imaging and photodynamic therapeutic (PDT) agent for RA theranostics. Our observations demonstrate that TP solution PDT have an ameliorating effect on the RA by decreasing significantly the IL-17 and TNF-? level in blood serum and fluorescent imaging could enable us to diagnose the disease in subclinical stages and bio-mark the RA insulted joint.
