About the offer

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a medical cure that includes a photosensitizing agent and a light source to kill cancer cells. It is a type of targeted therapy. It works by causing damage to the cancer cell’s DNA, which can prevent them from growing and dividing. PDT is typically used with surgery or chemotherapy. It may be performed as an alternative treatment for those patients who are not suitable candidates or for people who have cancer that has not responded to other treatments. There are several potential benefits to using photodynamic therapy (PDT) as an alternative cancer treatment. PDT is a targeted treatment that targets cancer cells, which may help minimize damage to healthy cells. PDT can be used to treat tumors that are hard to reach with surgery or other treatments, such as those located in the mouth or throat. PDT successfully treats certain types of cancer, including skin, head and neck, and esophageal cancer. If necessary, PDT can be repeated to achieve the treatment effect. PDT may have fewer side effects than chemo or radiation therapy.
