Abstract
Efficiency of Ehrlich ascites cells radiosensitization by porphyrins is a function of irradiation dose. The maximal radiosensitization was reached at the dose--2Gy. Moreover, efficiency of cell radiosensitization depends on extracellular porphyrins concentration Hematoporphyrin (HP) and hemaporphyrin dimethylether (HPde) have different radiosensitizing effect on cells. One of the reasons of such phenomenon may be the different degree of hydrofobicity of those porphyrins. The studies of intracellular porphyrins concentration show that they differ in the case of HP and HPde in the same order as cell radiosensitization efficiencies.
