Photodynamic therapy with porphyrin and phthalocyanine sensitisation: quantitative studies in normal rat liver.

Abstract

Selective sensitisation of malignant tumours to monochromatic light (photodynamic therapy, PDT) is a promising approach to cancer treatment, but current sensitisers are unsatisfactory and the parameters controlling effects produced in normal and neoplastic tissue are poorly understood. To quantify the effects in a relatively homogeneous organ, we carried… (More)
