In Vivo Cytotoxicity of Metallopurpurins to Bladder Tumors
We have recently described the use of purpurins in photodynamic therapy (PDT) of cancer.1 The reported use of metallophthalocyanines as effective dyes in PDT2 encouraged us to study the potential use of metallopurpurins as photosensitizers in PDT.
