Introduction: Sometimes materials that do not have the ability to penetrate into the membrane will need to be widely entered into the cell. Therapeutic methods are among the methods that sometimes feel this change in permeability when using different drugs and genes. Electroporation (EP) is a new technique that increases the permeability of cell membranes when cells exposed to an external electric field more than a threshold voltage and is used to introduce different non-permanent molecules. The major application of EP in the treatment of cancer combined with chemotherapy drugs such as Bleomycin and Cisplatin is electrochemotherapy. The aim of this study was to review the electroporation of cells, using electric and magnetic fields with approach of cancer treatment.
Conclusion: In pre-clinical studies, this method has first been optimized on the animal and cell, and after clinical trials, today, the standard and clinical protocol of electrochemotherapy has been proposed as a safe and effective method for some tumors. This is a simple method with minimal side effects, but in new pre-clinical studies, with the use of high frequency electrons, low electromagnetic fields, and the use of pulsed magnetic fields, it has been tried to overcome the limitations of this standard method.
