About Aptocine

Aptocine is a water-soluble drug targeted inside a tumor or other tissue by a small, single-use, disposable drug activator included with the drug. The drug activator contains a tiny array of LEDs that emits red light at a discrete frequency and intensity, for a fixed time period, to activate Aptocine and create a "treatment region" around the LED array. Constant illumination with the LEDs' low-intensity light can activate each molecule of Aptocine many times, resulting in a continuous supply of singlet oxygen molecules that can kill target tissues with minimal side effects through vascular closure and apoptosis. The Aptocine drug activator used in BPH is a linear LED array inside a standard catheter, providing a simple, easy-to-administer outpatient treatment. Administering physicians insert the catheter with LED array into the urethra, inject Aptocine intravenously, and then energize the drug activator. Aptocine advantages over existing therapies for BPH may include minimal side effects, safety, and repeatability.
