Paper Abstract

Laser-induced fluorescence data for rats injected with the different tumor-marking drugs, dihematoporphyrin ether, poly hematoporphyrin esters, hematoporphyrin and phtalocyanine, are presented. Studies were performed at two different excitation wave-lengths. Comparisons between the different drugs are made with regard to fluorescence intensity and tumor demarcation capability. Further, the origin of the differences in fluorescence characteristics is briefly discussed.
