Inhibitory effects of valproic acid in DNA double-strand break repair after irradiation in esophageal squamous carcinoma cells.


Radiation therapy is one of the most promising therapeutic strategies in unresectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor has been shown to enhance radiosensitivity. Valproic acid (VPA) is a well-known drug used to treat seizure disorders and epilepsy, and has been shown to inhibit HDACs. We recently reported… (More)
