Abstract

Several substances are known to demonstrate a temporary difference in concentration between normal and tumorous tissue after systemic application. This difference is due to the different metabolic rates in both tissues and enables the marking of tumors for fluorescence detection1,2and for treatment by means of photodynamic methods3,4.
