The photodynamic therapy in the spectral range 690 - 750 nm is more perspective for treatment of the deeply located tumors because the absorption of tissue has a significant minimis in this spectral range. A series of phosphosubstituted phthalocyanine derivatives were studied in vitro and in experiment on white mice. It has been shown that photodynamic therapy using these photosensitizers was very effective and induced the prominent tumor damage (necrosis, apoptosis), inhibition of its growth and stimulation of antitumor desmoplastic reaction.
