Impact of low-intensity electric field therapy on malignant pleural mesothelioma cell proliferation

LOCATION: Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS di Milano (Mario Negri IRCCS Pharmacology Research Institute of Milan)

Main contact: Dr. Monica Lupi

SHORT DESCRIPTION: Studying the interaction between TTFields and cancer drugs may be useful for designing more rational and effective clinical studies for MPM patients. Treatment with TTFields may lead to cell cycle and growth alterations and may help increase cell membrane permeability. Both these effects may help increase the sensitivity of MPM cells to treatment with various cancer drugs.
