A physiological feature of many tumor tissues and cells is the tendency to accumulate high concentrations of copper. While the precise role of copper in tumors is cryptic, copper, but not other trace metals, is required for angiogenesis. We have recently reported that organic copper-containing compounds, including 8-hydroxyquinoline-copper(II) and(More)
Recent research suggests that copper could be used as a novel selective target for cancer therapies. Copper is a co-factor essential for tumor angiogenesis processes and high levels of copper have been found in many types of human cancers, including prostate, breast and brain. We have reported that organic copper-containing compounds, such as(More)
