According to our hypothesis the interactions of triplet photosensitizer molecules with doublet free radicals generated in vivo (native free radicals) play an important role in the overall photodynamic effect (MTO mechanism). In order to support this mechanism, experiments have been performed recently in vivo, in vitro and in chemical model systems. The precondition of such studies, however, is the measurement of the kinetic parameters of various native free radicals generated in the systems investigated. Experimental results and their kinetic evaluation indicate that the triplet-doublet interactions may actually take place in the overall processes under study.
