A change of the conformation of hemoglobin hematoporphyrin
(both cytoplasmic and membrane-bound) is may be interconnected with changes in the morphometric indicators of erythrocytes (erythrocyte surface area, phase height, phase volume, and hemoglobin distribution).
Merchat, "Photosensitizing activity of hematoporphyrin
on Staphylococcus aureus cells," Biochimica et Biophysica Acta--General Subjects, vol.
synthesized a conjugate of hematoporphyrin
with gold nanoparticles for PDT; they compared the PDT efficiency in vitro of hematoporphyrin-gold nanocomposites with different diameter.
bryoniae leafminers, for behavioral reasons, were found to be more sensitive than males to hematoporphyrin
dimethyl ether and other photosensitizers like acridine orange, aminolevulinic acid and methylene blue (Luksiene et al.

derivative," Cancer Letters, vol.
Photofrin[R] (dihematoporphyrin ether), available for 30 years in its commercial form, and hematoporphyrin
derivatives (HPDs) are referred to as first-generation sensitizers.
Upon illumination hematoporphyrin
or its derivatives visible-absorbing photoproducts were observed by some researchers (Mang et al., 1987; Moan and Kessel, 1988).

Protective effect of quercetin and rutin on photosensitised lysis of human erythocytes in the presence of hematoporphyrin
One of the most dramatic demonstrations of porphyrin photosensitization was reported by Meyer-Betz, an Austrian physician, who injected himseli with 200 mg of hematoporphyrin
