Overview

This two-volume text provides a summary of studies relating to the use of photosensitizing agents in the diagnosis and therapy of cancer. This interesting work describes synthesis of new sensitizers, photochemical and photobiological properties of dyes currently used for photodynamic therapy, plus those being examined with a view toward providing therapeutic advantages. It contains results and methodology from leading experts on the use of porphyrins and other photosensitizers for detection of neoplastic disease and for photodynamic therapy of neoplastic disease. The volumes focus on the major clinical and pre-clinical research groups. They also include an appended bibliography which lists all pertinent publications in this field. This easy-to-understand book is written for all workers in the field of photodynamic therapy and provides an introduction to those beginning research on some aspect of tumor photosensitization.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A summary of research efforts through 1988 into the use of photosensitizing agents for imaging and eradicating neoplastic tissues. Researchers from around the world present 14 chapters that describe methodology where feasible as well as the results and significance of their work. The topics include the structure and localization determinants of HPD, sites of photodamage, strategies for tumor targeting, porphyrin chemistry, the triplet state and singlet oxygen generation, and lifetime measurements of photosensitizers. Also includes a 30-page unannotated bibliography on porphyrin photosensitization and related topics, 1900-1989. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
