Photodynamic Therapy that does not Work

There are various forms of PDT, some of which are absolutely useless and others which cause serious damage.


In the first category is SonoPhotoDynamicTherapy. Don't get me wrong, there are some practitioners trying to use this who are well intentioned and have good hearts, but they simply do not understand the technology and what they are using is totally worthless. Believe me, I have traveled thousands of miles to do solid technical analysis on their equipment and chemicals, and I constantly get patients from them who got no benefit from the treatment.

In the case of NextGen, patients who came to me after it failed had serious injury which made treatment difficult to impossible. One case I am aware of required 3 surgeries to fix the damage done by NextGen in China. It is now being promoted in Australia, but it is as dangerous as ever.

There are several factors that make PDT effective, so let's examine each of them separately.

The light source is critical. It needs to be concentrated and exactly the right wavelength (color) and of high intensity to work. A bed similar to this is being used by Noel Campbell and other SonoPhotoDynamicTherapy providers. Noel is under investigation by the Australian TGA and other agencies and accused of fraud.

This is the light source used by another SPDT user in Mexico.

This light is about 30% as powerful as the one used in Australia and my investigation proved the Australian SPDT light was totally worthless. I estimate about 2000 hours for 1 cm penetration.

I evaluated the light bed above using a professional laser radiometer and an optical spectrophotometer, then compared it to the absorption spectrum of the chemical they THOUGHT they were using. As you can see, according to a professional analysis it would take 700 hours per day under the light to penetrate one centimeter into the body.

This is where it really gets ugly. They don't even know what chemical they are using. They think it is Chlorin E6 which is a very poor second generation sensitizer, but they are wrong. I have analyzed samples from 3 different SPDT providers over a period of 8 years. It never changes, it is never what they say it is, and it is even more worthless than Chlorin E6.

At Cytoluminator we use 3 different light sources, all custom made to be an exact match to our sensitizer. Instead of a $100 array of fluorescent bulbs we use high power lasers and even higher power arrays which cost between $10,000 and $35,000 each. These allow us to get all the way into the center of the body.

This is our lowest power device, the laser we used from the beginning, going through the palm of my hand.

It is this kind of penetration which allows us to get deep into the body. We can reach the center of the brain or lungs, no problem,

Going through bone is no problem with our devices this is a picture of the laser going through my wrist and remember, this is our lowest power light. This is a 3 watt device. We also have 100 and 200 watts.

If you point the laser at black plastic or paper it takes about 2 seconds for it to start smoking. A lot of power, but as you can see above it causes no pain in normal tissue. To see it in action go to This link

Our next step up in power is a 200 watt array which covers the thorax completely.

To give you an idea of intensity, this photo was taken in a room filled with mid day tropical sun.

This is our highest intensity light source. It is only half the power of the larger one, but concentrated into a beam smaller than the palm of your hand.

With this light we can reach powers 50 times higher than the original laser, which gets us deeper into the body but also reduces treatment time.
hemeglobin absorption

Now for a bit of science. It looks complicated but bear with me and in minutes you will know more about PDT than SPDT people. The graph above is the amount of light hemoglobin in your blood absorbs at various wavelengths.

You can see minimum absorption is at 685 (our wavelength) so that color penetrates best. This is a logarithm scale so at 600 nm 40 times as much light is absorbed. Ten centimeters into the body only 0.1% as much light reaches the cancer.

This is the sensitizer actually used by SPDT, even though they think it is Chlorin E6 below. As you can see it absorbs at 632 nm, which makes it the worst sensitizer in the world, can only penetrate 5 mm even with good lights, which they don't have.

I have taken spectral absorption readings from many of their samples and they are totally wrong about what they are using. Of course the doctor have no idea of this, they are not scientists. What SPDT uses is a cheap drug for hemochromatosis.

This is Chlorin E6, what SPDT thinks they have but they are wrong, but it is what NextGen uses with a small addition that helps it get into cancer better. Biggest problems with this are no penetration, because wrong wavelength, it leaves the body very fast and it is only 5 times as much in cancer as in normal cells, which is why some patients have to have surgery to remove the healthy cells they kill.

This is my sensitizer. It has many advantages, 2 times higher quantum yield, exactly the right wavelength and does not leave the body until the cancer is dead, so you don't need recurring dosage at a high cost.

Most importantly, it is a nano particle which results in 85 times more in the cancer than in normal cells

What is even more important than all of the above is the fact that nobody else uses nano particles and if they do not use nano particles there is no way they can treat metastatic cancer. For an explanation of the significance of this go to the nanotech page.

Before you read the article from the UK Sunday Times below, I have to make a disclaimer. I am in no way trying to discredit Dr. Jimenez. I have it on good authority he is a caring man and does his best. Also, no matter how good you are sometimes you lose patients, it is just too late. More importantly, the press makes a big deal when an alternative practitioner loses a patient or 3, but they totally ignore the fact that conventional practice loses 97.3% of their patients. That's right, with chemo surgery and radiation you have a 2.7% chance of long term survival.

My problem with this is that I have been following SPDT for a long time, and all over the world they are being investigated for fraud, and it is because the technology supplied by the Dove Clinic is garbage, so no matter how hard they try or how caring they are, they lose far too many patients, patients that we would not lose with our technology.


Because SPDT was started at the Dove Clinic in England, most of the investigation into it happens there so these two stories are from a UK newspaper.

Clinics mislead patients over cancer ‘cure’

TERMINALLY ill cancer patients are being misled into paying up to £18,000 for treatment that is unproven and ineffective, a Sunday Times investigation has discovered.

An undercover reporter, posing as the husband of a dying cancer patient, was told by one clinic that the “light bed and sonar treatment” it was offering could break down her tumours.

Julian Kenyon, the medical director at Dove Clinic in Winchester, Hampshire, said that the treatment could be more effective than chemotherapy, a long-standing procedure for advanced cancer.

He is one of a number of exponents of light bed and sonar treatment around the world. At one clinic in Mexico, families of three cancer-ridden British children paid tens of thousands of pounds for treatment that failed to save them.

This weekend, experts condemned the clinics for exploiting the desperation of critically ill people.


NextGen is using a Chlorin E6 sensitizer with an added moiety to enhance cancer uptake, but even with this it is only six times more concentrated in cancer than normal cells. I have warned patients in the past, this can NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES treat metastatic cancer, it is only useful for cancer on or very near the skin.

The people in Russia who I worked with use something more selective than the NextGen product, but they are honest enough to admit that it is useless for metastatic cancer.

Unfortunately the NextGen people are not so honest, and the damage I have seen done by their treatment is about the same as being exposed to a blowtorch.

Three surgeries have been required to repair damage to one patients rectum caused by NextGen. You have been warned!

NextGen is under attack by the National Health Services in the UK for their practices.
