Pharmacological Double Inhibition of Glycolysis in glioblastoma Multiforme Cells Maximizes Cancer Cell Killing: A Synergism between Citrate and 3-bromopyruvate
BACKGROUND: Glioblastoma multiform (GBM) tumors are the most aggressive and diffusely infiltrating brain tumors in human patients. Despite surgery, modern chemotherapy and anti-angiogenesis treatments, GBM tumors regrow rapidly and end patients’ lives in a relatively short time. GBM tumors aggressively invade and infiltrate adjacent normal brain tissues. GBM cells are driven by glycolysis (glucose oxidation to produce ATP and lactate ... Read more
