Abstract
Benzoporphyrin derivative monoacid ring A (BPD-MA) is a potent new photosensitizer with a significant extinction coefficient at 690 nm. In this study, the photosensitizing efficacy of BPD-MA irradiated at 694 nm with continuous wave (cw) radiation from an argon ion laser pumped dye laser and high intensity pulsed radiation from a ruby laser was compared. Human bladder carcinoma cells in vitro were treated with 0.14 (mu) M BPD-MA for 3 h, washed, then irradiated with either cw or pulsed irradiation. A cumulative cw radiant exposure of 1 or 3 J/cm2 led to cellular survival rates of 38% and 6% respectively compared to untreated controls. Essentially no phototoxicity was observed at the high intensity pulsed powers used in this study.
