Abstract

In this study, a completely water soluble tri-cationic porphyrin-EDTA conjugate was synthesized. We present data demonstrating the tumoristatic effects of the novel fully water soluble cationic porphyrin TMPy(3)PhenEDTA-P-Cl(4) in the dark, in the medullary thyroid carcinoma cell lines MTC-SK and SHER-I and weaker effects in the small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor cell line KRJ-I. In addition, cytotoxic effects were also studied in normal human fibroblasts that represent normal tissue and the results are compared to the tumor cell lines.
