MedKoo CAT#: 205602

CAS#: 632-69-9 (sodium)

Description: PV-10, also known as Acid Red 94 and Rose bengal disodium, an iodinated fluorescein derivative, with potential antineoplastic and radiosensitizing activities. When injected into tumor tissue, PV-10 specifically targets and concentrates in tumor cells, producing cytotoxic singlet oxygen when exposed to ionizing radiation. In addition, PV-10 may stimulate an anti-tumor immune response.
