Abstract

This article reports on results of treatment of 114 cancer patients at the Cancer Institute, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, between September 1981 and December 1984. In September 1981, a study group of clinicians, physicians and basic scientists was set up at the Cancer Institute for the study of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with HPD. During the following 39 months, 114 patients were treated by PDT alone, 8 by PDT + hyperthermia and 3 by PDT + radiotherapy. The analysis in this presentation is based on PDT alone, since the numbers of patients in the other groups is insufficient for statistical analysis.
