Evidence for different mechanisms of EMT-6 tumor necrosis by photodynamic therapy with disulfonated aluminum phthalocyanine or photofrin: tumor cell survival and blood flow.


A comparison was made of photodynamic therapy (PDT) mediated by two photosensitizers, the disulfonated aluminum phthalocyanine (AlPcS2) and Photofrin* (PII) with regard to their mechanism of action on murine tumors. Balb/c mice bearing intradermally growing EMT-6 tumors were injected intravenously with either 1 mumol kg-1 body weight of AlPcS2 or 5 mg/kg of… (More)
