Anti-diarrhea drug drives cancer cells to cell death

Date: December 22, 2020

Source: Goethe University Frankfurt
Summary:
In cell culture, loperamide, a drug commonly used against diarrhea, proves effective against glioblastoma cells.
A research team has now unraveled the drug's mechanisms of action of cell death induction and - in doing so - has shown how this compound could help attack brain tumors that otherwise are difficult to treat.

 

Thanks.
