New light-activated drugs are making a name for California- based PDT Inc. The drugs, which are selectively retained by diseased or cancerous cells, are activated by light, which produces a photochemical reaction in the targeted area. The new process combines drugs with medical devices to treat numerous diseases including AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma, skin cancer, heart disease, eye disorders, and urological conditions. PDT has so far signed deals with Pharmacia SpA, Cordis, and Boston Scientific, and several of its innovative drugs are in clinical and preclinical trials.
