Abstract
Photobleaching of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) -induced protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) and benzoporphyrin derivative-monoacid ring A (BPD-MA) was investigated using an orthotopic rat bladder tumor model. For both photosensitizers used, the photobleaching rate constant was not fluence- rate-dependent under conditions that photodynamic response was fluence rate-dependent. These data suggest that photobleaching pathways may be independent of the photochemical paths involved in tissue destruction. The fluorescence spectrum was followed during irradiation by using laser-induced fluorescence method and a build-up of photoproducts of PpIX was observed whereas no fluorescence of photoproducts was obtained in the case of BPD-MA.
