Paper Abstract

Over the past 14 months we have treated a wide variety of head and neck cancer patients with mTHPC mediated photodynamic therapy. This drug is a very powerful second generation photosensitizer with significant advantages over earlier drugs. Patients treated range from palliative to primary (curative) to adjunctive (intraoperative) cases. Following promising results we are now setting up a multicenter European study to treat early head and neck cancer with this drug/light combination, along with other collaborative studies to look further at the role of adjunctive PDT.
