Preclinical biochemical studies using a novel 5-aminolevulinic acid ester derivative with superior properties for photodynamic therapy of tumors

We have synthesized a novel 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) ester derivative from reacting ALA with β-citronellol and tested its potential for treatment of tumors by photodynamic therapy (PDT) in comparison to the widely used agents, ALA and Me-ALA (the methyl ester of ALA). The β-citronellol-ALA ester derivative was far superior to ALA in causing complete destruction of solid skin tumors after PDT...

Effect of chlorine dioxide gas of extremely low concentration on absenteeism of schoolchildren

Gas-generating devices of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) are used as deodorant of rooms. We happened to use a commercial tabletop deodorant canister that releases extremely low-concentration ClO2 gas in a school classroom as deodorant. We found retrospectively and unexpectedly that during a period of 38 consecutive school days the rate of schoolchildren absent from the school was markedly lower (1.5%) in a classroom where the...
