Study suggests revolutionary way to make cancer cells more susceptible to existing chemotherapies

Study suggests revolutionary way to make cancer cells more susceptible to existing chemotherapies

The same signal that drives aggressive growth in a deadly cancer cell type also triggers coping mechanisms that make it "notoriously" hard to kill, according to a study published online December 15 in Cell. When stressed, this cell type - far more than most cancer cells - encases its genetic messages in protein globs called "stress granules" that lessen the effect of chemotherapies. [More]
