Paper Abstract

Intraperitoneal injection of hematoporphyrin derivative (50 mg/kg) was given to mice with S180 and M16-MB. Seventy-two hours after injection, the tumor was radiated by 510.6 nm wavelength copper vapor laser. Power density was 330 - 660 mw/cm2. Energy density was 200 - 270 J/cm2. After the irradiation, the volume and weight of the tumors were decreased significantly compared with that of the other four groups. Necrosis was seen in the center of the irradiated tumor by pathological examination. The depth of necrosis ranged from 5.5 - 8.8 mm with an average of about 7 mm. Swollen mitochondria, dilated rough endoplasmic reticulum, and broken plasma membrane could be seen in cancer cells by electrical microscope. Experimental results showed that copper vapor laser could be used as the light source of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of superficial cancer. The killing effect and cause of cancer recurrence in PDT treatment of cancer is discussed.
