Paper Abstract

One of the most promising directions in modern experimental and clinical oncology is a photodynamic therapy of cancer. The affect of this method rests on the capability of malignant cells to accumulate and to store any photosensitizers more than cells of normal tissues can do. Photobiological and photomedical progress far extends the capabilities of traditional methods for treatment of new malignant formations. However problems with creation and optimization of photosensitizers that meet modern medical technology's requirements are not solved up to now. That is the reason to continue searching for new more active and less toxic photosensitizers.
