Paper Abstract

The authors developed a new high power red laser diode system for photodynamic therapy (PDT) with Mono-L-aspartyl Chlorin e6 (NPe6). The laser beam has a low wavelength (664 nm) and relatively high power. Our results suggest that a certain increase in the tumor tissue level of NPe6 and a certain increase of laser light dose reaching a deeper layer of tumor caused an increase in percent cure. In addition, the effectiveness of PDT and also tumor recurrence following PDT depend to some extent on the total laser dose reaching deeper layers of tumors. Furthermore, the effectiveness of PDT tends to correlate with the amount of photobleaching by PDT.
