Paper Abstract

Experiments were performed on five batches of inbred rats with Walker-256 carcinosarcoma receiving sole treatment photodynamic therapy (PDT), rMuIFN--gamma activated macrophages (AMO) or associated therapy (PDT+ AMO - A; PDT+ AMO - B) and the control batch (saline) consisting of animals with untreated Walker-256 tumors. These experimental observations demonstrate that `combined' photodynamic therapy with immunotherapy stimulates cell-mediated antitumoral activity, increased survival rates and reduces incidence of Walker-256 carcinosarcoma in rats.
