Paper Abstract

Efficiency of cell radiosensitization by porphyrins is a function of the irradiation dose, the nature of the cell and physico-chemical properties of the sensitizer. The maximal radio- sensitization for E. ascites tumor cells was reached at 2 Gy, for Saccharomyces cerevisiae- 25Gy. The radiosensitization by different porphyrins in E.ascites tumor cells increases their cytotoxicity by a factor of 3, in Saccharomyces cerevisae --inhibition of growth 0.5 - 2.5 time.
