BACKGROUND/AIM L-Carnosine inhibits senescence of somatic cells and displays anticancer activity. Here we analyzed if L-carnosine (20 mM) retards senescence of human peritoneal mesothelial cells (HPMCs) and inhibits progression of ovarian cancer cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS Experiments were performed with primary HPMCs established from patients undergoing… CONTINUE READING
