Laser Treatment of Melanomas

Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research / Fortschritte der Krebsforschung / Progrès dans les recherches sur le cancer book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 4)


Because the studies in our laboratory and the work of other investigators of the effect of color on the absorption of the laser energy, patients with melanomas early in the course of our clinical investigative studies were treated. The initial experiments were done by impacts of the laser of freshly excised deeply pigmented melanoma tissue. In addition, cytological material from ulcerative melanomas was exposed to unfocussed laser beams of low energy laser impact of 0.2–0.5 joules and the selective destruction of the melanoma tumor cells was found.
