Hematoporphyrin derivative injected directly into a subcutaneous rat glioma resulted in a significant greater tumor growth inhibition than hematoporphyrin derivative injected parenterally upon stimulation by light, Co60 or by combination of the above. The photodynamic effect was analyzed in anin vivo and in anin vitro clonogenic assay. The directly injected… CONTINUE READING
