Paper Abstract

The first experience of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in Russia is presented. Thirty-three patients have been treated by PDT since February 1992 with a photosensitizer from the hematoporphirine group -- Photogem. The follow-up results (5th - 18th months) have been controlled in all patients with skin cancer and basalioma, cancer of the tongue, lower lip and oral mucous, breast cancer, lung cancer and tumor of other locations. Positive effect has been observed in 30 patients (90.9%). Total regression of the tumor was seen in 16 patients (48.5%) and partial reduction -- in 14 cases (42.4%).
