Lactic Acid Found To Fuel Tumors

ScienceDaily (Nov. 23, 2008) — A team of researchers at Duke University Medical Center and the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) has found that lactic acid is an important energy source for tumor cells. In further experiments, they discovered a new way to destroy the most hard-to-kill, dangerous tumor cells by preventing them from delivering lactic acid.

Hi Charlie,

What the article says is basically that they can kill more efficiently hypoxic tumor cells by lowering the availability of glucose
"Because the glucose was used more abundantly by the better-oxygenated cells, they used up most of the glucose before it could reach the hypoxic cells, which starved while waiting in vain for glucose to arrive."

Lowering glucose as an effective anti cancer therapy has been discovered more than 40 years ago with HYDRAZINE SULFATE.

Yet these crooks have the gall to add
"The idea of starving hypoxic cells to death is completely novel."

Same old same old
