Table 2: Effect of gemcitabine at IC50, ionizing radiation at 5 Gy and gemcitabine (IC50) and ionizing radiation (5 Gy) combination on cell cycle distribution of SW620, HT-29 and SNU-C4 human colon cancer cells. Data were presented as mean ± standard deviation of percentage of cells of three independent experiments. *Different from irradiated cells (p<0.05).
