Journal: Molecular pharmaceutics (2015)

Institution: Northeastern University

Research Areas: Cancer research, Drug development

Cell Lines: HeLa (Human cervical cancer)

Summary: Using holomonitor M4, it was found that FA-(C6+Dox)-LP treated hela cells underwent rapid progression to apoptosis (cell suicide) after 21 hours, as evidenced by a drastic drop in cell area after loss of cell membrane integrity.
