Why Chemotherapy Works
Chemotherapy is more than half a century old, but recently, researchers at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute reported new insights into how it works. The general notion has been that chemotherapy targets rapidly growing cells. But the scientists showed that this is only part of the story. Chemotherapy works far better in cells whose mitochondria are "primed" for cell death through high levels of proapoptotic proteins.
