Figure 5: Effects of ellagic acid as a radiosensitizer on tumor cells. When cancer cells are treated with radiation alone, they are killed by the reactive oxygen species generated due to oxidative stress. However, when cells are given a prior treatment of a chemotherapeutic agent such as ellagic acid, it augments the production of reactive oxygen species and eventually leads to enhanced apoptosis
