Description: VWN38241, also known as BPD-A-1,4-diene , and benzoporphyrin derivative Ring A -1,4-diene, is an important precursor for making PDT drug verteporfin. Verteporfin (trade name Visudyne), a benzoporphyrin derivative, is a medication used as a photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy to eliminate the abnormal blood vessels in the eye associated with conditions such as the wet form of macular degeneration. VWN38241 has CAS#94238-24-1 and inchi key VTMVQLSZTQAYOV-WKGWVRGVSA-N. For the convenience of scientific communication, tt is named as VWN38241 according to Hodoodo Chemical Nomenclature.

Verteporfin accumulates in these abnormal blood vessels and, when stimulated by nonthermal red light with a wavelength of 689 nm in the presence of oxygen, produces highly reactive short-lived singlet oxygen and other reactive oxygen radicals, resulting in local damage to the endothelium and blockage of the vessels. Verteporfin is also used off-label for the treatment of central serous retinopathy.
