Microwave Radiation Exposure in RG2 Glioblastoma Cells
Journal of Nanomaterials & Molecular Nanotechnology Cytotoxicity of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles with/ without Microwave Radiation Exposure in RG2 Glioblastoma Cells – Gaza University, Turkey
“Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive brain tumor in humans. Gliomas compose 80% of all malignant brain tumors and are characterized by fast progression and invasive character. In the present study, we investigated cytotoxic effects of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles with/without MW radiation exposure on glioblastoma cells. . . .
“The results of this study showed that RG2 cells showed cytotoxicity to Fe3O4 nanoparticles at higher concentrations. The decrease in cell viability of Fe3O4 treated cells was dose dependent. In the mean time, combined application of MW radiation and Fe3O4 treatment had synergic effect on RG2 cell toxicity and ROS production. This synergic effect was marked in higher concentrations of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles. . . .
