(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The "classic" prostate cell lines, DU145, PC-3 and LNCaP, have served as a valuable cell biological model for research into prostate cancer. However, their relevance may be limited because they derive ...
The influence of pentoxifylline on damage responses in tumour cells
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Pentoxifylline enhances the toxicity of radiation and has emerged as an effective modulator of the radiation response of tumour cells. The molecular mechanisms involved in the enhancement of radiotoxicity ...
Examination of irradiated neuroblastoma and neuroepithelial cell lines for the interrelationship between cell survival, micronucleation, apoptosis and DNA repair
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Predictive assays are of key importance in clinical radiotherapy, chemotherapy and toxicology. Prior to exposing malignant tissues to irradiation or drugs in the clinic, a good understanding of the ...
