  1. Cells were treated with 1,0 ng/ml TRAIL, 10 Gy, simultaneous combined therapy and with 10 Gy 12 h prior to TRAIL application. Microscopic evaluation of Hoechst stained cell nuclei with strict apoptotic criteria as chromatin condensation and nuclear fragmentation was performed 48 hours after treatment. Table shows percentage of apoptotic cells ± SD (n = 3).
