Non-malignant skin cancer is a growing problem particularly in the affluent Western world, linked to an aging society and increased sun exposure. Surgery is the traditional treatment, but it can lead to scarring and infection. Photodynamic therapy, which uses a light source to activate a prodrug, is increasingly implemented by physicians as an alternative to surgery. Ambicare Health Ltd. is eveloping a range of wearable, single-use, battery-operated light sources for PDT for skin cancer, as well as in phototherapy of other skin disorders such as acne and age-related wrinkles.
