Abstract

Photodynamic therapy is an investigational treatment of various types of carcinoma. It involves a photosensitizing agent which, when exposed to light of the proper wavelength, forms toxic oxygen radicals that result in cell death. This article describes its current use in the management of bronchogenic carcinoma.
