Paper Abstract

Since the first report by Agarwal et al in 1991 on apoptotic induction by photodynamic therapy (PDT) with chloroaluminium phthalocyanine a large number of papers have come out to show that PDT can induce cell death through apoptosis. This finding may provide potential clinical impact on, for example, those tumor cells resistant to any cancer therapy. The present paper briefly reviews apoptosis with emphasis on PDT-induced apoptosis with hexaminolevulinate.
