5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA)-containing liposomes having various average diameters and/or positive surface charges were prepared, and their photodynamic therapy (PDT) efficacy for murine thymic lymphoma cells, EL-4 cells, cultivated in vitro was investigated. The PDT efficacy for EL-4 cells and the accumulation of ALA-induced protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in the cells increased with a decrease in the average diameter of liposomes. In particular, the ALA-containing liposomes smaller than 63.5 nm in diameter promoted the PDT efficacy in comparison with that of ALA alone. We also found no significant changes in PDT efficacy and PpIX accumulation with increasing positive surface charges of liposomes.
