Study Title

A Multicenter, Prospective, Open-Label, Non-Randomized Single-Arm Clinical Study Of The Safety And Tissue Response To Photodynamic Therapy Using Porfimer Sodium For Injection As Treatment For Solid Tumor In Peripheral Lung Prior To Surgical Resection


This research study is being conducted to assess the safety of photodynamic therapy (PDT) in participants with peripherally located malignant tumors in lung parenchyma prior to surgical resection. It will involve up to 10 sites in USA. Participation will last 4 months.


The study aims to assess: The safety of PDT in subjects with solid tumors in the peripheral lung prior to surgery to remove the tumor. The effect of PDT on lung tumor and healthy tissue near the lung tumor when used prior to surgery to remove the tumor.
