Finding the Achilles' heel of cancer

Different strokes

The stroke drug was initially developed to prevent nerve cell death during inflammation and tissue damage in the brain after stroke. However, in pre-clinical studies, American researchers found that these compounds didn't work as well as they'd hoped. Today they are used only for research purposes in laboratory settings.

"The compound we used," says Prof. Cohen-Armon, "presented no traces of toxicity in mice. With this compound, we were able to show how one of the many molecular mechanisms regulating the cell cycle can be targeted, and the proliferation of cancer cells halted." The team is currently working to identify all the regulatory mechanisms involved in this specific process and hope that, in better understanding the science, they might point the way to a new class of anti-cancer drugs.

Her research team was joined by Asher Kastiel, a Ph.D. student from Prof. Shai Izraeli's team working at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center, and the veterinarian Dr. David Castel. All the experiments conform with the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals published by the National Institutes of Health in the United States.
