Cyclacel Limited, the UK-based biopharmaceutical company, has demonstrated through state-of-the-art biomarker technology that CYC202 (R-roscovitine), its lead CDK inhibitor drug candidate, appears to induce cancer cell suicide or apoptosis in patients receiving the drug.
5alpha-reductase isozymes and aromatase are differentially expressed and active in the androgen-independent human prostate cancer cell lines DU145 and PC3.
A well-known side effect of this approach is that normal cells are indiscriminately damaged, creating toxicity to patients and limiting the cancer cell killing activity of conventional chemotherapy.
Previous studies in our laboratory demonstrated that high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis of ground corncob bedding extracts characterized two components (peak I and peak II) that disrupted endocrine function in male and female rats and stimulated breast and prostate cancer cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo.
We wanted a drug that inhibits a protein that is only expressed in cancer cells, not in normal cells, in part because we believed this would minimize toxic side effects.
By far the most popular theory is that linoleic acid increases the production of eicosanoids like prostaglandins, which may encourage cancer cells to proliferate.
Stress, diet and fatigue can wake up the cancer cells, sometimes causing the cells to grow back, many times stronger and faster than ever.
