In vitro studies comparing activities of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy and electrochemically activated solutions

0044 English OPEN
Kamil, Z.;

Abstract\ud There is a need for alternative “treatments” for killing microbes in wound and other body surfaces. Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy (APDT) and Electrochemically Activated Solutions (ECAS) are two recent developments in the field of biocide research that i... View more
