Case Number 105008 - Method of Killing Cancer Cells by Neurotransmitter Inhibition

Description:  Breast cancer is a major contributor to cancer-related mortality. Standard of Care treatments for breast cancer are fraught with inadequacies related to chemotoxicity and many patients are left with few treatment options beyond radical tissue resection and traditional or experimental therapies.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have discovered a novel mechanism of triggering cell death in several human breast cancer cell lines. An apoptotic mechanism has been identified for one particular line, and additional experimental avenues are being pursued to further characterize the mechanisms involved in producing cytotoxicity.
