synergistic effect of combining hyperthermia with irradiation and CC nanoparticles on MCF-7 cells
What is it about?
In radiotherapy, combination of nanoparticles with ionizing radiation, as a radio-sensitizer, improves the contrast between cancerous and normal tissues by increasing local radiation dose. In addition, hyperthermia has been indicated to be effective in cancer treatments when combining with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.
Why is it important?
Our findings revealed that calcium carbonate nanoparticles (CC NPs) in combination with irradiation and hyperthermia could significantly reduce the cell viability and enhance the apoptosis of the MCF-7 breast cancer cells, the same as doxorubicin anti-cancer drug.
