1-(3-C-Ethynyl-beta-D-ribo-pentofuranosyl)cytosine (ECyd, TAS-106) is a novel antitumor ribonucleoside that inhibits RNA polymerase. In the present study, we investigated the cellular and molecular interactions between TAS-106 and cisplatin (CDDP) in vitro using A549 human lung cancer cells and the in vivo antitumor effect of combined treatment using OCC-1 and LX-1 human tumor xenografts. The treatment effects were determined by evaluating cytotoxicity, the cell cycle distribution, apoptosis… CONTINUE READING
