Abstract
We will present an overview of our long-term team(s) experiences in photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumors by Lasers from drug discovery to clinical applications. Main topics: (1) Our search for ideal tumor localizers and photosensitizers. (2) Modification and synthesis of newly developed photosensitizers to enhance the efficacy of PDT. (3) Novel approaches for the removal of skin photo-toxicity after PDT treatment. (4) Our newly developed technique for diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer using 5-ALA as well as the mechanism of its biodistribution and action. (5) The potential use of other light sources in PDT. (6) PDT- clinical applications. (7) Where do we go from here?
