Professor Xiangming Guan of SDSU's Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences explained that when cancer cells are tired out, they are easier to kill using free radi- cals, the basic mechanism method can be used in treat- ment for resistant cancers to combat cancer resistance by increasing its sensitivity. "Cancer cells don't always re- spond to treatment or they develop a resistance to radia- tion therapy or chemothera- py in the course of the treat- ment. This is a significant, clinically relevant problem;' said Seefeldt. Current results show that the compound can also make behind radiation and some cancer more sensitive to the a half dozen.

White Lake also won the JV game, 45-36. chemotherapy drugs, widely used anticancer drug, Free radicals are molecules doxorubicin. ' Right now, we radicals steal electrons from the nearest stable molecule to regain their own stability. Excessive free radicals have been associated with poten- tial destructive effects, such as aging, but these damag- ing effects can also be used against cancer cells. SDSU researchers have spent years developing a compound that will stress Dec. 23: Girls and boys bas- ketball DH at Corsica. the cancer by blocking an enzyme called glutathione reductase. SDSU tested nine different compounds over the past six years before dis- covering the current com- pound in 2004, according to assistant professor Teresa Seefeldt, who has been work- ing with Guan since 2002 on the pro)ect. "We have identified a com- pound which can effectively block this enzyme and create stress in cancer;' said Guan. "We have also demonstrated that the stressed cancer was more sensitive to radiation on expanding into different cancers" said Seefeldt. Although in a very early stage, the compound SDSU is using to block the enzyme has shown potential for some unpredicted anticancer activ- ity. "This unexpected cancer inhibiting property could lead to a new class of antican- cer drugs" said Guan. Overall, Guan says the cur- rent results are promising. "I'm glad this approach has been recognized by the Na- tional Institutes of Health in terms of its significance. They have been funding this proj- ect for the past seven years.
