Bothpatients and researchers did not have access to which drug was being used foreach participant. Photodynamic therapy potentiated the effects of drugsconsidering that patients showed gradual improvement with the appliedapplication, which was proven in the analysis of sample secretions performedbefore and after treatment. The MAC® method had a positive effect inthe protocol used and is strengthened as a possibility for treatments aimed atwomen’s health with regard to vulvovaginal diseases.
