Cytokine IL6 as a New Chemotherapeutic Target for Ras-driven Cancers

...ounters team has demonstrated that Ras induces the secretion of IL6 in a number of different cell types. The scientists then showed that IL6 promotes tumorigenesis by encouraging new blood vessel growth. Dr. Counter and colleagues were able to successfully fight tumor formation in a preclinical model by supp...

Researchers Find New Target for Anti-cancer Drugs

...eractive ras gene was responsible for above-normal secretion of a factor known as interleukin-6 (IL-6). Scientists know a great deal about IL-6 and its functions in the body, but its link to oncogenic ras was unknown. In addition to finding that the ras oncogene spurred the production of IL-6, they also foun...
