ALA-induced photodynamic effect on viability, apoptosis and secretion of S100 protein, secreted by colon cancer cells in vitro.


BACKGROUND S100 protein is a proven prognostic factor in cancers. In colorectal cancers, its secretion correlates with clinical stage of the disease. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used as a supporting therapy in treatment of this particular cancer.
