Default Metformin May Combat Cancer

Science Daily � Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have found that a commonly prescribed diabetes drug kills tumor cells that lack a key regulatory gene called p53.

Results from current studies in mice may result in new therapies for a subset of human cancers that tend to be aggressive and resistant to existing treatments.

Additionally, the findings open up a new avenue for targeting cancers whose hallmark is the absence of this regulatory gene.
More than half of all human cancers have lost the p53 gene.
