BACKGROUND Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most common kidney cancers and is highly resistant to chemotherapy. We previously demonstrated that 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine (DAC) could significantly increase the susceptibility of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cells to paclitaxel (PTX) treatment in vitro, and showed the synergy of DAC and PTX against RCC. The(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the antiproliferative effects of interferon (IFN)-α and rapamycin (RPM) on renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cells and examine the synergistic growth suppression conferred by IFN-α and RPM. The effects of IFN-α and/or RPM on RCC cells were determined using a WST-1 assay and the synergy of IFN-α and RPM against three(More)
