Photodynamic Tumor Therapy: 2nd and 3rd Generation Photosensitizers
Book News, Inc. Compiles quantitative data on newly developed photosensizers for the photodynamic therapy of cancer and other modalities, which are otherwise scattered through the literature. The collection of reviews first considers the biophysical and biomedical definitions of photosensitivity and phototoxicity on the molecular and cellular level in order to standardize results. Then they group the available data on naturally occurring or chemically synthesized compounds into synoptic tables and graphs; describe methods of preparation and purity control, and application schedules to cell cultures and experimental animals; and project future applications of the approach.

Synopsis The introductory section of this text provides a framework for standardizing results in biophysical terms. It is comprised of biophysical and biomedical definitions describing photosensitization and phototoxicity on the molecular and cellular level.
