About Caspases in Cancer

The direct activation and targeting of caspases represents a novel approach to inducing apoptosis in cancer cells and may have utility across a broad range of cancer types while avoiding chemoresistance.  Caspases are the proteases responsible for initiating apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells.  Cancer cells grow in an uncontrolled manner in part through their ability to develop mechanisms to resist apoptosis.  Many classic cancer therapies (cytotoxic drugs and radiation therapy) work by inducing upstream pro-apoptotic pathways that then activate caspases to overcome this resistance.
