IIT Madras identifies unique biochemical pathways of retinoblastoma

Researchers from IIT Madras and Sankara Nethralaya have identified biochemical pathways that retinoblastoma (eye cancer) preferentially chooses for growth and survival. They found amino acids are a major source of energy for the tumour tissue, cholesterol synthesis is underutilised and only long and very long chain fatty acids are synthesised. They have identified 13 drug … Continue reading IIT Madras identifies unique biochemical pathways of retinoblastoma
