Abstract

Photoradiation therapy (PRT) was performed in clinical cancer cases ascertaining the therapeutic effectiveness and safety of this new modality in experimentally induced canine central type lung cancer. In the canine experiments, weekly submucosal injections of the carcinogen 20-methylcholanthrene were made at the bifurcation of the right apical and cardiac lobe bronchi in beagles and mongrel dogs1. This is one of only a very few successful dog lung cancer models in the world.
