Abstract: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a minimally invasive therapeutic modality for different cancers. The aim of this study was to determine the phototoxic pattern of Zinc sulfophthalocyanine (ZnPcSmix) photosensitizer in DLD-1 and A549 cells and the extent of PDT using different concentrations of photosensitizer.
