Article title

Preliminary studies of phthalocyanine sensitizers incorporated into human leukemia cells from two cell-lines.

Languages of publication
Three phthalocyanine dyes-sensitizers were incorporated into two types of human T leukemia cells from two cell-lines: CCRF and MOLT 4. The efficiency of the dye incorporation into cells and photochemical properties of stained cells were investigated using fluorescence spectroscopy. The dyes exhibited different properties in each of the two cell-lines. Small differences in cell membrane properties have a strong influence on the efficiency of dye incorporation and on the course of photodynamic reaction. It is suggested that, for a given patient, an optimal dye-sensitizer should be established before photodynamic treatment.
