Thank you to both Gavin and PCL1029. There is something though in this technique that makes me think: according to what I read in the NCI
"The light needed to activate most photosensitizers cannot pass through more than about one-third of an inch of tissue (1 centimeter). For this reason, PDT is usually used to treat tumors on or just under the skin or on the lining of internal organs or cavities (3). PDT is also less effective in treating large tumors, because the light cannot pass far into these tumors (2, 3, 6). PDT is a local treatment and generally cannot be used to treat cancer that has spread (metastasized) (6)."
This seems to discard this method in practise for my sister since her cancer is metastatic to liver and lymphatic nodes.
All the best for both
