Paper Abstract

In recent years, the effect of ultrasound (US) in combination with porphyrins such as a gallium-porphyrin complex (ATX-70) has been reported in the treatment of experimental cancers. Before clinical application of this method, further studies are needed. The transplanted squamous cell carcinomas (5CC) on C3H/He mice were irradiated by a tunable optical parametric oscillator (OPO) laser light or ultrasound, in the presence of several different photosensitizers. The tumor size and survival of mice after treatment were observed. Furthermore, we compared antitumor effects of combined irradiation of laser light and ultrasound with those of single laser light or ultrasound, in the presence of ATX-70 or a pheoforbide derivative (PH-1126). Besides PH-i 126 and ATX-70, the following sensitizers were tested: Photofrin II (Pf-II), hematoporphyrin oligomer (HpO). 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) and aluminum phthalocyanine tetrasuiphonate (AIPcS4). In the results, it was good effects of antitumor by the laser light treatment in the case of PH-1126 and AIPcS4, ATX-70, HpO nsd AIPcS4 produced betterantitumor effeets by irradiation with ultrasound. The antitumor effects of combined use of laser fight and ultrasound were stronger than those of single laser light or ultrasound in both cases of PH-i 126 and ATX-70. Key words: OPO laser light, ultrasound, PH-1126. ATX-70
