The experiment in vitro of killing cervical cancer cells was carried out by using TiO 2 photocatalytic method. The result shows that photoexcited TiO 2 is very effective for killing the cancer cells. The optimal result is obtained when the amount of TiO 2 is 200 μg/ml and the illumination time is 50 min. The future development and clinical application of this method were discussed.
