Exogenous Chromophores for Laser Photosurgery (PDT)

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 252)


After extensive research1, 2, over 10 years, and the treatment of thousands of patients, laser PDT surgery is here and for the future, The National Cancer Institute, USA, declares, with reason, that today, these are the priority cancers for PDT, primarily endobronchial cancer, early gastric cancer, and bladder cancer. This formal recommendation has not interfered with continued research and PDT for many other clinical types of cancer.
