Quercetin Suppresses Drug-Resistant Spheres via the p38 MAPK–Hsp27 Apoptotic Pathway in Oral Cancer Cells

Abstract

BACKGROUND Treatment failure in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) leading to local recurrence(s) and metastases is mainly due to drug resistance. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are thought be responsible for the development of drug resistance. However, the correlations between CSCs, drug resistance, and new strategy against drug resistance in OSCC remain… (More)
