Basic Study

Efficacy of Microwave to cancer cells and normal cells

Normal HBE cells and H322 cells were equally mixed. After mixed cells were seeded into a 6-well plate, testing well plate was treated by the same moderate hyperthermia procedure applied for in vitro cell viability study. Qtracker Cell Labeling kit was used for this cell specificity study. Even though equal number of cells were seeded, H322 NSCLC cells gradually decreased after 24, 48 and 72 h. In contrast, normal HBE cells remained at baseline or showed minimal decrease.

Photo 1 : Before treatment. H322 cancer cells were stained in red and normal cells were stained in red.

 

Photo 2 : 24 h after treatment.

 

Photo 3 : 48 h after treatment. H322 cancer cells decreased obviously.

 

Photo 4 : 72 h after treatment. No H322 cancer cell were seen.
