This paper reports results of hematoporphyrin derivative based on photodynamic therapy (PDT) of 24 lung cancer lesions in 21 patients that were followed at least three months. Three of 24 lesions exhibited complete remission and 20 of 24 lesions exhibited a response to PDT. Tumors in twenty of twenty-one patients exhibited visually discernible hematoporphyrin derivative fluorescence upon irradiation with the 514-nm line from an argon ion laser. There were no severe complications due to PDT. The… CONTINUE READING
