Abstract— The clearance times of 17 different porphyrin derivatives from SKH:HR‐1 mice have been measured using the technique of in vivo fluorescence spectroscopy. This technique monitors the in vivo porphyrin fluorescence observed from the external skin surface. Most hydrophilic porphyrin derivatives show relatively short clearance times, in the order of 2.5–6 h. The dicarboxylic acid porphyrins, proto‐, hydroxyethylvinyldeutero‐and hematoporphyrin IX have clearance times of 7.8, 12.2 and 14.7…

CONTINUOUS, NONINVASIVE MEASUREMENT OF In Vivo pH IN CONSCIOUS MICE
TLDR
Extracellular pH was measured continuously and noninvasively in hairless mice using a transcutaneous spectronuorometric technique and a fluorescent pH probe, bis‐carboxyethyl carboxyfluorescein (BCECF) using an optical fiber system and a photomultiplier tube.

Controlled targeting of different subcellular sites by porphyrins in tumour-bearing mice.
TLDR
Intraperitoneal injection of the liposome-bound porphyrins to mice bearing a MS-2 fibrosarcoma results in remarkably more efficient tumour targeting than that obtained by administration of the same porphyrs dissolved in homogeneous aqueous solution.
Fluorimetric studies on the dimerization equilibrium of protoporphyrin IX and its haemato derivative.
TLDR
The direction of this effect, fluorescence quenching, suggests that these salts promote an increase in aggregation, and the magnitudes of the effect, among different salt species sharing a common anion, at constant ionic strength, imply that the effect is cation-specific.
NON‐INVASIVE TECHNIQUE FOR OBTAINING FLUORESCENCE EXCITATION AND EMISSION SPECTRA IN VIVO
TLDR
Using this system, it is found possible to obtain good emission and excitation spectra of the material responsible for the weak red fluorescence that characterizes normal mouse skin, and to follow the biosynthesis and subsequent clearance of protoporphyrin IX in the skin of non‐anesthetized mice that had been given various doses of the porphyrIn precursor 5‐aminolevulinic acid.
INTERACTION OF HUMAN SERUM LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS WITH PORPHYRINS: A SPECTROSCOPIC AND PHOTOCHEMICAL STUDY
TLDR
It can be concluded that hydrophobic porphyrins bind to blood proteins in patients suffering from protoporphyria.
Phototoxic damage to sebaceous glands and hair follicles of mice after systemic administration of 5-aminolevulinic acid correlates with localized protoporphyrin IX fluorescence.
TLDR
The skin of albino mice given 5-aminolevulinic acid by intraperitoneal injection rapidly developed the characteristic red fluorescence of protoporphyrin IX and appeared to recover completely except for a persistent reduction in the number of hair follicles.

Laser-Induced Fluorescence Studies of Hematoporphyrin Derivative (HPD) in Normal and Tumor Tissue of Rat
TLDR
Fluorescence studies of hematoporphyrin derivative in normal and tumor tissue of rat were performed with nitrogen laser excitation and optical multi-channel detection and should have implications for practical human HPD endoscopy.
New possibilities of cytostatic drug testing on patient tumor cells by flow cytometry
TLDR
A new assay for cytostatic drug testing is described which can be automated and that the DNA-distribution of the dead cells as well as the functional state of the surviving tumor cells and inflammatory cells can be judged from intrACEllular esterase activity and intracellular pH.
