Talaporfin (INN, also known as aspartyl chlorin, mono-L-aspartyl chlorine e6, NPe6, or LS11) is a photosensitizer used in photodynamic therapy (PDT).

It absorbs red light at 664nm normally provided by a laser tuned to this wavelength.[1]

It was approved in Japan (in 2004) for PDT of lung cancer and marketed as Laserphyrin.[2]
