Integrative photodynamic therapy (IPDT) of tumors consists of combined use of different curable factors that extremely increase the effectiveness of IPDT. The leading curable effect of PDT is determined by developing of aggressive photochemical reactions in the tumor. The main destructive factor of these reactions is the generation of free radicals that kill tumor’s cells. For PDT efficacy increasing it is necessary to solve the following problems and assure: easiness of production or synthesis; accumulation high selectivity regarding tumor tissue; low toxicity in light and darkness; singled oxygen generation high quant output; promptly elimination from the organism after the treatment procedure; good absorption in spectral intervals most transparent for tissues (red and infrared intervals); optimal interconversion between quant output and fluorescence quant output. PDT effectiveness may be significantly increased by means of: increasing of photosentisizer selectivity and accumulation in tumor tissue; increasing of tumor tissue photochemical destruction caused by photosensitizer. Realization of integrative PDT using Cyber Laser may increase tumor therapy effectiveness to 94–96% and at the same time will establish a new direction in PDT.
