Paper Abstract

In the present study, the effects of a newly developed photosensitizer chrolophyll derivative (CPD4) from Chinese Medicine Cansha (silkworm excrement) with pulsed copper vapor laser and pumped-dye laser (510, 578, 630, and 670 nm wavelength) on human rectal cancer cell line HR8348 was investigated. Hematoporphyrin derivative (YHPD) was used as a positive control. The relationship between CPD4 dose, the laser wavelength, and laser energy was explored. The MTT rapid colorimetric assay was used as a measuring indicator of photodynamic cytotoxicity and compared with 3H-thymidine incorporation assay and colony-forming assay. The photodynamic sensitivity of different cell lines was observed. The results showed that CPD4-induced HR8348 cells irradiated with pulsed copper vapor laser displayed a markedly photodynamic effect.
