Phase II Pilot Study of Surgery and Adjuvant Intracavitary Photodynamic Therapy

Phase II Pilot Study of Surgery and Adjuvant Intracavitary Photodynamic Therapy With Large Diffuser Fibers in Patients With Malignant Mesothelioma

Background:
Photodynamic therapy uses light and drugs that make cancer cells more sensitive to light to kill cancer cells. Combining photodynamic therapy with surgery may be an effective treatment for malignant mesothelioma. This is a Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining photodynamic therapy with surgery in treating patients who have malignant mesothelioma.
