Synergistic Antitumor Effect of Dichloroacetate in Combination with 5-Fluorouracil in Colorectal Cancer

Figure 5

Effects of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and dichloroacetate (DCA) on apoptosis-associated molecules expression. Bcl-2 expression was significantly decreased by DCA in SW620, LoVo, and LS174t and HT29 cells. Bax and caspase-3 expression levels were higher after exposure to 5-FU and DCA compared with control.
