Metformin combo shows promise for late-stage prostate cancer

Metformin combo shows promise for late-stage prostate cancerJanuary 28 2015. The January 23, 2015 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry published the finding of researchers at Purdue University of a potential benefit for a combination of metformin and the gene inhibitor B12536 in late stage prostate cancer.

Late stage prostate cancer is commonly treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT); however, the disease eventually becomes resistant to the treatment. "The goal of castration is to block androgen synthesis," commented researcher Xiaoqui Liu, of Purdue's Department of Biochemistry. "But cancer cells eventually become 'smart' enough to make androgen anyhow, which is why the cancer continues to grow."
