Abstract: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a new modality for cancer management. In the few last years, this modality has come out of experimentation to become the fourth dimension of clinical treatment. In this PDT, a certain photo sensitizer is applied on tumor tissue ZKLFK ELQGV VSHFLILFDOO\ RQ WXPRU FHOO WKHQ WKH ODVHU DW QP LV switched. This produced cytotoxicity by the combined effect of light and the drug. This is the general protocol. In this study: 1. We use the optical method to identify differences in the cellular component which distinguish normal from malignant cell. We study the UV fluorescence emission and excitation properties from amino acid residues in cellular proteins in cultured human normal and malignant cells. 2. photodynamic therapy for different cultured tumor cell and monitoring the regression of tumor cell using optical method and cell death rate, were tested This dissertation consists of six chapters ;each chapter divided into many sub topics and comprises many figures ,data, and references
