Background - In-stent restenosis remains a pivotal problem after coronary and peripheral stenting. Sonodynamic therapy inhibits tumor growth by means of cytotoxicity after the activation of sonochemical sensitizers by ultrasound. PAD-S31 is known to be a water-soluble, chlorin-derivative sonochemical sensitizer. We assessed the efficacy of sonodynamic therapy using this sensitizer on neointimal hyperplasia in a rabbit stent model. Methods and Results - Stents were implanted in the iliac arteries of 16 rabbits. A total of 32 stented arteries were randomized to sonodynamic therapy, control, ultrasound exposure, and PAD-S31 groups. One hour after the intravenous administration of PAD-S31 (25 mg/kg body weight), ultrasound energy (1 MHz, 0.3 W/cm2) was delivered transdermally to the sonodynamic therapy group. At 28 days, all stent sites were analyzed morphometrically. The size of the intimal cross-sectional area was smaller in the sonodynamic therapy group than in the control, ultrasound, and PAD-S31 groups (0.31±0.07 versus 1.38±0.47, 1.66±0.71, and 1.61±0.42 mm2, respectively; P <0.05). The ratio of the intimal and medial cross-sectional area was smaller in the sonodynamic therapy group than in the control, ultrasound, and PAD-S31 groups (0.71±0.22 versus 2.53±1.39, 2.48±0.60, and 3.45±1.42 mm2; P <0.05). Conclusions - Sonodynamic therapy with PAD-S31 is considered to be a feasible treatment modality for noninvasively inhibiting neointimal hyperplasia in a rabbit iliac stent model.
