Paper Abstract

We have analyzed the results of photodynamic therapy using light-sensitizing agent "Photoheme" in 56 patients - 44 women with pre-cancerous lesions of cervix (group 1) and 12 women with early cervical cancer (group 2). The results were as follows: group 1 - c omplete regression - 3 7 (84%), partial regression - 4 (9,%), stabilization - 2 (4,6%), progression -1 (2,3%); group 2 - complete regression - 8 (66,7%), partial regression - 1 (8,3%), stabilization - 3 (25%). Anti-viral effect was registered in 38 (90,4%) cases after first procedure, in 4 cases - after second procedure.
