5-Aminolevulinic Acid Side Effect

The side effects of ALA have been only anecdotally reported and these effects as well as pharmacokinetics of the photosensitizing end product of ALA, protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), in patients undergoing operation are unknown. This study systematically determines the side effects of ALA and pharmacokinetics of PpIX in patients undergoing abdominal surgery. Patients were given 30 or 60 mg/kg ALA preoperatively, kept in subdued light for 48 hr, and monitored clinically and with laboratory tests for 5 to 7 days and for at least 2 months thereafter. 5-Aminolevulinic Acid Side Effect.jpgPeriodic plasma samples and tissue biopsies were analyzed for PpIX concentrations using a photodiode array system. No patient developed symptoms of porphyria other than nausea and vomiting, which occurred in 20%. Nearly one-quarter of patients developed transient abnormal liver functions. No patient developed cutaneous phototoxicity, abnormal neurologic function, or unexpected postoperative laboratory tests. The times of peak plasma, skin, skeletal muscle, omental, mucosal, muscularis mucosal, and tumor concentrations of PpIX varied among patients. In general, PpIX concentrations were significantly greater with the higher dose of ALA. Tumor PpIX concentrations were significantly greater than in other tissues except liver. In conclusion, ALA, up to 60 mg/kg, is associated with minimal side effects in patients undergoing operation. Actual tissue concentrations of PpIX suggest that endogenous photosensitization using systemically administered ALA is a mode of PDT feasible for treatment of adenocarcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract in humans
