Lumiblast is a 4.5-year project that aims at establishing a novel method to combat brain tumours by providing proof-of-concept in extra-cellular systems, Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) cell cultures and animal models.
Lumiblast`s innovative concept is based on combining Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT) with a novel chemiluminescent (or self-luminous) substance so that the need for an external light source, such as a lamp or a laser, will be eliminated. This will bypass today`s main shortcoming of clinical PDT, namely the limited depth of light penetration into tissue.
Lumiblast`s vision is to advance and take this breakthrough technology to the clinic within five to six years after the end of the FET Open project.
