    Purpose: Pancreatic cancer has one of the highest fatality rates of all cancers, and new strategies or reagents to tackle this disease are needed. Triptolide (TL) is able to potently inhibit the growth of pancreatic tumor cells in vitro. On the other hand, blockage of 5-LOX pathway might be...

  • Gene May Cause Tamoxifen Resistance. McBride, Deborah // ONS Connect;Jun2010, Vol. 25 Issue 6, p15 

    The article reports that overexpression of the FGFR1 gene may cause resistance to tamoxifen and other hormone treatments in breast cancer patients. It says that hormone-based treatments like tamoxifen started to stop the growth of cancer cells after the action of FGFR1 gene was ended. It states...
