I. Background: Sonodynamic therapy (SDT), the synergistic effect of ultrasound and drugs on tumor cells, is a promising method for targeted cancer therapy. SDT enables efficient and localized effects on a pathological site.II. Aim: In this study, we investigated the induction of apoptosis by ultrasound in the presence of a novel porphyrin.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
