Abstract

The inconvenience and pain of hospital-based photodynamic therapy (PDT) is sometimes limiting.1 We developed very low irradiance LEDs for ambulatory PDT. Preliminary studies showed this to be convenient and relatively painless.1-4 Here we evaluate the Ambulight® device (Ambicare Health Ltd) in a randomised controlled assessor-blinded study comparing low irradiance ambulatory PDT (APDT) with conventional PDT (CPDT) for superficial basal cell carcinoma (SBCC) and Bowen’s disease (BD) (lesions ≤2cm).
