High lactate levels predict likelihood of metastases, tumor recurrence, and restricted patient survival in human cervical cancers.
Pathophysiological parameters such as vascular density and tissue oxygen pressure can influence tumor malignancy and patient survival. Observations from our group showed that metastatic spread of… Expand
Synthetic lethal metabolic targeting of cellular senescence in cancer therapy
Activated oncogenes and anticancer chemotherapy induce cellular senescence, a terminal growth arrest of viable cells characterized by S-phase entry-blocking histone 3 lysine 9 trimethylation… Expand
LDHA-Associated Lactic Acid Production Blunts Tumor Immunosurveillance by T and NK Cells.
Elevated lactate dehydrogenase A (LDHA) expression is associated with poor outcome in tumor patients. Here we show that LDHA-associated lactic acid accumulation in melanomas inhibits tumor… Expand
ERGO: A pilot study of ketogenic diet in recurrent glioblastoma
Limiting dietary carbohydrates inhibits glioma growth in preclinical models. Therefore, the ERGO trial (NCT00575146) examined feasibility of a ketogenic diet in 20 patients with recurrent… Expand
Elevated tumor lactate concentrations predict for an increased risk of metastases in head-and-neck cancer.

PURPOSE Hypoxia shifts the balance of cellular energy production toward glycolysis with lactate generation as a by-product. Quantitative bioluminescence imaging allows for the quantitation of lactate… Expand
Lactate: mirror and motor of tumor malignancy.
A number of studies have shown that malignant transformation is associated with an increase in glycolytic flux and in anaerobic and aerobic cellular lactate excretion. Using quantitative… Expand
Lactate enhances motility of tumor cells and inhibits monocyte migration and cytokine release.

Using quantitative bioluminescence imaging, tissue concentrations of ATP, glucose, and lactate were registered in biopsies that were taken from primary tumors of human head and neck at the time of… Expand
Lactate in solid malignant tumors: potential basis of a metabolic classification in clinical oncology.
A number of studies have demonstrated that malignant transformation is associated with an increase in glycolytic flux and in anaerobic and aerobic cellular lactate excretion. Using quantitative… Expand
