Targeting cellular metabolism using rapamycin and/or doxycycline enhances anti-tumour effects in human glioma cells
Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)
This study identifies a few promising combinations of readily available drugs. However, it also shows that it is hard to predict which combinations will work in an individual. Different cell lines reacted different ways, and sometimes made the tumor grow faster instead of helping. More research needs to be done but I think this is a step in the right direction. They may be able to find readily available (and sometimes cheap) drugs that can be added to the standard treatments to make them work much better.
