Title (EN) METHODS FOR TREATING VIRAL INFECTIONS
(FR) METHODE DE TRAITEMENT DES INFECTIONS VIRALES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a method for treating a viral infection in a subject in need of such treatment comprising administering to the subject a photosensitizer formulated in a liposome carrier, and exposing the subject to light at a wavelength 20-40 nm greater than the maximum absorption of the photosensitizer at a sufficient dose and duration to treat the viral infection in the subject. The present invention also provides a method for treating a viral infection in a subject in need of such treatment comprising administering to the subject (i) a photosensitizer formulated in a liposome carrier and (ii) at least one quencher, and exposing the subject to light at a sufficient wavelength, dose and duration to treat the viral infection in the subject.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une méthode permettant de traiter une infection virale chez un sujet nécessitant un tel traitement, laquelle méthode consiste à administrer au sujet un photosensibilisant formulé dans un excipient liposomique, et à exposer le sujet à une lumière dont la longueur d'onde dépasse de 20-40 nm l'absorption maximum du photosensibilisant, en une dose et pendant une durée suffisantes pour traiter l'infection virale dont souffre le sujet. La présente invention concerne également une méthode permettant de traiter une infection virale chez un sujet nécessitant un tel traitement, laquelle méthode consiste à administrer au sujet (i) un photosensibilisant formulé dans un excipient liposomique, et (ii) au moins un extincteur, puis à exposer le sujet à une lumière présentant une longueur d'onde suffisante, en une dose et pendant une durée suffisantes pour traiter l'infection virale dont souffre le sujet.
