SYSTEMIC AND INTERSTITIAL PDT

The light-sensitive photosensitizer is administered by infusion and activated through systemic (intravenous) laser therapy.

 

After a certain time, the photosensitizer binds selectively to the tumor. The laser can now irradiate and destroy the diseased tissue locally (interstitially, endoscopically or with special catheter technique).

 

The photosensitizers (Indocyanine Green, Chlorin E6, Curcumin and Hypericin) are highly specific and natural. Side effects are therefore relatively low.

Treatment Examples:

  • Interstitial PDT: Pancreatic cancer

  • Interstitial PDT: Mediastinal metastases

  • Interstitial PDT: Breast tumor

  • Interstitial PDT: Tumor in the floor of the mouth

  • Endoscopic PDT: Tumor in the esophagus, rectum or intestines

  • Special catheter technique: Prostate or bladder tumor
