There are two types effect of electrics field towards cancer cells, that is inhibiting tumor growth and destroy cancer cells undergoing division. This research uses Electrotherapy Capacitive with 100 KHz frequency of the source of alternating
electrical current with voltage -8.5 V to +8.5 V. Electric field was tested in vitro for 72 hours in a row against breast cancer MCF-7 cell line and normal cells fibroblast Vero. The results showed that the electric field could inhibit the growth of cancer cells MCF-7 and the electric field is proven not cause harmful effects to normal cells.
Key word: Electro therapy, frequency, cancer, electric field, proliferation.
