1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25(OH) 2 D 3 ] has been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. However, carboplatin is the most widely used chemothera-peutic agent to treat cancer. We hypothesized that vitamin D may enhance the antiproliferative effects of carboplatin, and tested this hypothesis in ovarian cancer SKOV-3 cells treated with(More)

Accumulating evidence indicates that inhibition of LDH-A induces apoptosis mediated by oxidative stress in cancer cells. To date, it's still unclear that whether(More)
