BACKGROUND Previous studies indicate that disulfiram (DS), an anti-alcoholism drug, is cytotoxic to cancer cell lines and reverses anticancer drug resistance. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are the major cause of chemoresistance leading to the failure of cancer chemotherapy. This study intended to examine the effect of DS on breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs).

Resistance to chemotherapy and non-specific cytotoxicity are the major challenges to the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In this study, we demonstrated that the disulfiram/copper (DS/Cu) complex alone exhibited cytotoxicity to doxorubicin (Dox) resistant leukemia HL60 cells (HL60/Dox) and enhanced cytotoxicity of Dox to HL60/Dox cells.
