Autophagy inhibition enhances radiosensitivity of Eca-109 cells via the mitochondrial apoptosis pathway

Autophagy inhibition is crucial for the improvement of the efficacy of radiotherapy in cancer. The aim of the present study was to determine the potential therapeutic value of autophagy and its correlation with mitochondria in human esophageal carcinoma cells following treatment with ionizing radiation (IR). Autophagy in Eca‑109 cells was induced under poor… CONTINUE READING
