Abstract
Chloro-aluminum sulfonated phthalocyanine (CASPc) has been proposed as a photosensitizing agent for photodynamic therapy (PDT) of neoplasia. This paper reviews the results of PDT treatment using CASPc as a photosensitizing agent in the treatment of 15 cats representing 23 sites of facial, solar induced squamous cell carcinoma, 4 dogs with hemangiopericytomas, 3 dogs with fibrosarcomas, and 1 dog with multiple cutaneous mast cell tumors. The results of this study to date suggest that CASPc is a good photosensitizing agent for the treatment of some forms of spontaneously occurring malignant neoplasia and should be more thoroughly evaluated for this purpose.
