Abstract
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and fluorescent diagnostics (FD) using photosensitizers Photosense (Aluminium Phtalocyanine, (NIOPIC, Russia)(PS) and Alasense have been provided in 101 patients with breast cancer as a multicenter study. All patients had recurrences of breast cancer (skin metastases) after combined treatment, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. FD of tumor with detecting of subclinical sites, accumulation of PS in tumor, adjacent tissue, skin before and during PDT was fulfilled. Multiple surface irradiations were carried on with interval 24-72 hours (semiconductive laser - (lambda) =672+2nm) in light does 100J/cm2 and total light does 300-900 J/cm2. 2 months after PDT we had overall response rate of 86,87% with complete response (CR) in 51,48% and partial response in 35,39%. During year after PDT in 52 patients with CR we had CR in 36,6% local recurrences in 23,1%, progression (distant (lung or bone) metastasis) in 40,4% of cases. Our experience show pronounced efficacy of PDT for skin metastases of breast cancer.
