Pulling the Plug on Calcium Pumps — Potential New Treatment Strategy for Pancreatic Cancer

Pulling the Plug on Calcium Pumps — Potential New Treatment Strategy for Pancreatic Cancer
UK scientists have identified a new way to kill pancreatic cancer cells by ‘pulling the plug’ on the energy generator that fuels calcium pumps on their cell surface.

The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, reports how switching off the cancer’s energy supply causes the pancreatic cancer cells to become ‘poisoned’ by an irreversible build-up of calcium. Read more . . .
