Since Photodynamic therapy(PDT) is able to increase the antitumor immunity, in our laboratory we examine the antitumor effect of combination of PDT,with photoactivated Aluminium disulfonated Phthalocianine(ALS2Pc), adoptive immunotherapy, with immune lymphocytes, and chemotherapy on aggressive murine tumor. Mice bearing L1210 tumor were treated at day +4 with PDT ( 5mg/Kg of AlS2Pc and 100mW/cm2 × 10' of exposure of laser light 24hrs. later),at day +6 with Adriamycin(ADR 2mg/Kg) and at day + 7 with immune lymphocytes(IL),collected from L1210 bearing mice pretreated with PDT(2×107 cells).The results show that the combination ADR + PDT + IL demonstrates a significant synergistic antitumor effect while the chemotherapy treatment with low dose of the drug and the adotive immunotherapy treatment are slightly effective. The same positive results were obtained with the combination of PDT,Cisplatin(CDDP 2mg/Kg) and IL,while the CDDP treatment alone and the Il treatment alone are slightly effective. In conclusion these results suggest that it is possible to completely cure animals bearing advanced tumors, with a combined therapy, PDT + adoptive immunotherapy + low dose chemotherapy.
