Abstract
Porphyrins can be degraded by light. Photogem is a photosensitizer used in PDT in Brazil. Photogem irradiation at 514 and 630 nm change its fluorescence and absorption due to photodegradation and photoproducts formation (new absorption band in 640 nm). Irradiated Photogem was incubated with tumor or non-tumor cells. The low toxicity suggests that the photoproducts of Photogem are less cytotoxic than the original formulation.
