Combination of Vitamin C and Antibiotics Can Kill Cancer Stem Cells
A new study from the University of Salford, UK, suggests that a combination of vitamin C and antibiotics can destroy cancer stem cells. This discovery can help develop a new strategy to fight cancer recurrence and treatment resistance.
In the course of the study, a team of researchers combined doxycycline administration with doses of vitamin C and was able to remove glucose from CSCs that effectively starved the cells to death.
Professor Michael Lisanti says: “Our results indicate it is a promising agent for clinical trials, and as an add-on to more conventional therapies, to prevent tumor recurrence, further disease progression, and metastasis.”
