Pr. Pedro Buc Calderon will give a presentation about how NQO1 overexpression modulates breast cancer cell sensitivity to quinone-based chemotherapeutic agents

CalderonPr. Pedro Buc Calderon from the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, is going to highlight the topic on how NQO1 overexpression modulates breast cancer cell sensitivity to quinone-based chemotherapeutic agents at Paris Redox World Congress, which will be held at Institut Pasteur in Paris, from June 13 to 15, 2016.

Alterations in antioxidant enzymes expression are associated with changes in cancer cell sensitivity to chemotherapeutic drugs. Pr. Pedro Buc Calderon and his team investigated mechanisms of resistance to pro-oxidant drugs by using a model of oxidative stress-resistant MCF-7 breast cancer cells (Resox cells).
