Finnish Study Shows Cell Metabolism Is Key to Cancer

Wednesday, April 17, 2013
A new study has connected known differences in the metabolism typical of cancer cells to the pathway leading to apoptosis, or cell death. Researchers working in Finland have, for the first time, linked metabolic changes in cancer cells to the mechanism that, in normal cells, prevents abnormal cellular proliferation. The discovery is likely to encourage drug developers to consider whether existing drugs that modify cellular metabolism could be used in the future to treat cancer.
