Abstract

PDT (Photodynamic therapy) is a relatively new treatment modality for cancer, having the advantage of selective destruction of malignant tumor cells. It is expected that patients with oral cancer also would be good candidates for the modality, and we have been investigated clinical applications. In this paper, we report superficial and interstitial PDT for treatment of oral cancer and ALA mediated PDT for treatment of premalignant lesions.
