Paper Abstract

The relevance and importance of the development of new areas of tumor therapy is defined in connection with a strong increase in the level of oncological diseases. The latest global cancer data indicates a high mortality rate: the incidence of cancer increases to 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million cancer deaths in 2018. Advances in nanostructures and nanotechnologies at the molecular scale in future can revolutionize several aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of body tumors. Search of highly specific and highly effective new therapeutic compounds is one of the most important directions in treatment of oncological diseases by noninvasive way. Currently, in clinics method of photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumors based on photosensitizers (PSs) and light irradiation is widely used. At its application, the cancer cells are unable to develop resistance to such method of destruction.
