Sonoporation by low-frequency and low-power ultrasound enhances chemotherapeutic efficacy in prostate cancer cells in vitro

Abstract

Combination therapy is used to optimize anticancer efficacy and reduce the toxicity and side-effects of drugs upon systemic administration. Ultrasound (US) combined with micro-bubbles (UM) enhances the intracellular uptake of cytotoxic drugs by tumor cells, particularly drug-resistant cells. In the present study, low-frequency and low-energy US (US… (More)
