Overcoming resistance to anti-cancer drugs by targeting cell ’powerhouses’
Published: Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 14:26  in Biology & Nature
Re-routing anti-cancer drugs to the “power plants” that make energy to keep cells alive is a promising but long-neglected approach to preventing emergence of the drug-resistant forms of cancer — source of a serious medical problem, scientists are reporting. That’s the conclusion of a new study published in the journal ACS Chemical Biology.
