Paper Abstract

Irradiation of pheophorbide a-sensitized melanotic M2Rcells inside threshold dose leads to development of a minimum of three of the properties of metastasing tumor cells: cell proliferation, synthesis of tPA, and loss of alpha 4 integrins. Collagenase synthesis can be assumed from loss of contact to the growth substrate. The suspected metastatic potential has to be proven now by animal experiments.
