Clinical Observations


Experimental study was perfumed to explore the potential benefits of electrochemical therapy (ECT) in tumor-bearing mice. The mice were divided into four groups: Group A, received ECT alone; Group B, radiotherapy alone; Group C, ECT plus radiotherapy; and group D untreated control. We find that it causes tumor growth delayed when ECT of 10 coulombs and radiotherapy 10 GY have the similar action of resisted cancer. We also find G2-phase arrest and increase apoptosis by cell flow cytometry after treatment when ECT and/or radiation. ECT plus radiotherapy have cooperative antitumor effects.
