Abstract
A phthalocyanine derivative with two cholesterol moieties as axial ligands to the central Ge(IV) ion efficiently photosensitizes the oxidative modification of L-tryptophan. Administration of liposome-bound GePc to Balb/c mice bearing a MS-2 fibrosarcoma yields a quantitative release of the dye to serum lipoproteins, followed by a selective accumulation in the tumor as well as a low content in the skin. At 24 h after injection of 0.76 mg/kg GePc, the tumor was irradiated with 600 - 700 nm light; tumor necrosis appeared in all treated mice as a consequence of extensive damage of cellular and stromal elements.
