Tamoxifen magnifies therapeutic impact of ceramide in human colorectal cancer cells independent of p53.
Poor prognosis in patients with later stage colorectal cancer (CRC) necessitates the search for new treatment strategies. Ceramide, because of its role in orchestrating death cascades in cancer cells, is a versatile alternative. Ceramide can be generated by exposure to chemotherapy or ionizing radiation, or it can be administered in the form of short-chain analogs (C6-ceramide). Because intracellular P-glycoprotein (P-gp) ... Read more

Potential role of acid ceramidase in conversion of cytostatic to cytotoxic end-point in pancreatic cancer cells.
PURPOSE Acid ceramidase (AC) occupies an important place in the control of cancer cell proliferation. We tested the influence of AC inhibition on the effects of PSC 833, a P-glycoprotein antagonist with potent ceramide-generating capacity, to determine whether AC could be a therapeutic target in pancreatic cancer. METHODS Ceramide metabolism was followed using 3H-palmitate, and molecular species were determined by ... Read more
