Enhancement of the antitumor effect by combined use of high-energy shock waves and ATX-70.


The antitumor effects of high-energy shock waves (HESW) in combination with ATX-70 [a gallium-porphyrin complex, 2,4-bis(1-decyloxyethyl)-Ga(III)-1,3,5,8-tetramethylporphyrin++ +-6, 7-dipropionyl diaspartic acid [sequence: see text] were investigated. In vitro, the cell damage to mouse MH134 hepatoma after HESW treatment was enhanced by adding ATX-70. In… (More)
