Inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 indirectly potentiates antitumor effects of photodynamic therapy in mice.


PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to potentiate the antitumor effectiveness of photodynamic therapy (PDT). A cDNA microarray analysis was used to evaluate the gene expression pattern after Photofrin-mediated PDT to find more effective combination treatment with PDT and inhibitor(s) of the identified gene product(s) overexpressed in tumor cells… (More)
