Radiofrequency impairs viability of bladder cancer cells and has an additive effect when combined with chemotherapeutics in vitro

Presented by I.S.G. Brummelhuis et al. ESUR, Porto

A study comparing the effects of two techniques combined with chemotherapy on cell viability of bladder cancer cells in vitro.


MMC and epirubicin showed the greatest impact on the cell viability of all cell lines. RF-induced HT inhibited cell viability of T24, J82 and RT4 cancer cell lines. In combination with MMC and epirubicin this effect was additive. The majority of the effects of RF-induced HT were not attributable to the effect of HT, implying that the effect of RF adds independently to the effects of HT and chemotherapy. The cell viability of benign hbSMC was not affected by RF.
