Inhibition of heme oxygenase-1 enhances anti-cancer effects of arsenic trioxide on glioma cells

We have previously reported that arsenic trioxide (ATO) could inhibit glioma growth both in vitro and in vivo, and demonstrated its potent therapeutic effects on gliomas. In this study we showed that ATO induced cell damage and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) expression in glioma cells via ROS generation. HO-1 inducer clearly protected from ATO-induced cell death… CONTINUE READING
