AIMS AND BACKGROUND Cell membranes were shown to be sensitive to and affected by static magnetic fields (SMF). METHODS Cells were treated with four anticancer drugs followed by treatment with a combination of drugs and SMF. Individual cells were examined using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The drugs were taxol (alkaloid), doxorubicin (anthracycline), cisplatin (platinum compound) and cyclophosphamide (alkylating agent). RESULTS Holes were observed in cells exposed to SMF but not in control… CONTINUE READING
