Photo dynamic therapy (PDT) with use of two Russian photosensitizers, photohem (hematoporphyrine derivative) in the dosage 1.5-5.0 mg/kg of body weight and photosense in the dosage 0.5-1.5 mg/kg of body weight has been provided in 26 patients with spread recurrent tumors of oral cavity. During PDT power density has been from 50 to 1000 mW/cm2. Light irradiation doses ranging from 50 to 600 J/cm2. Therapeutic effect in term from 2 months to 3 years took place in 24 patients. In 18 cases complete resorption of tumor was achieved, in 6 cases, partial resorption. No effect was found in 2 cases. Our experience supposes that PDT appears to be a reasonable alternative to the traditional therapy of recurrent tumors of oral cavity.
