Paper Abstract

This study presents possibilities of neoplasm localization applying the laser-induced fluorescence method using new porphyrin derivatives -- complexes of protoporphyrin and amino acids. These compounds show a strong retention in diseased tissues. Their spectral characteristics and photosensitizing properties are similar to hematoporphyrin derivatives, so they can be used both in the photodynamic therapy method and neoplasm diagnosis.
