Effects of far-infrared rays on 3 human prostate cancer cell lines

ABSTRACT: We introduce anticancer effect of the far-infrared rays. The growth of three human prostate cancer cells (DU145, PC-3 and LNCaP) was suppressed in vitro only by far-infrared rays. The far-infrared rays induced the gene activation involved in apoptosis that exert positive effects on cancer control. Shima, H. et al. Far-infrared rays control prostate cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Nature Precedings, hdl:10101/npre.12008.11980.10101 (2008). Keywords: cancer control Overall design: Twelve samples were analyzed. Each sample was cultured quadricate. One replicate per array. The DU145, PC-3 and LNCaP cell lines were obtained from American Type Culture Collection (Manassas, VA, USA). DU145 cells were maintained in minimum essential medium supplemented with 10% heat-inactivated fetal calf serum, 2 mM L-glutamine, 100 U/ml penicillin G and 0.1 mM non-essential amino acids in an atmosphere of 5% CO2 at 37°C. PC-3 and LNCaP cells were maintained in F-12K medium and RPMI medium with the same supplements, respectively. All three cancer cells were cultured for 21 and 28 days with or without exposure to far-infrared rays. The cells without exposure to far-infrared rays were used as the reference samples (Far-infrared rays-treated vs. non-treated cells). Natural or synthetic rubber/resin (RB) was obtained as far-infrared rays emitter from Yamamoto Corporation (Osaka, Japan). RB consisted of rubber, lime stone and titanium metal powder in a honeycomb structure comprised of micron-sized cells, and had the ability to radiate far-infrared rays (4–25 um). Experimental samples were sandwiched with RBs for 21 and 28 days. Channels 1 were exposed to RB.
